To Potty or Not to Potty

This is the potty Baby Lex has. She is a Fisher Price Baby

Potty training? Maybe! About two months ago, Baby Lex has been taking off her diaper. Usually that's a sign that she is ready to be potty trained. So I bought Baby Lex a potty! Yay! Right? No! She only plays with the potty. She thinks it's fun to sit on and pretend to potty. When she is fully clothed she will sit there a good 10 minutes, but when the diaper is off...zoom! Off like a track meet.

Nothing! Nothing, is happening on the potty! So I've decided to take a different approach. I've decided to start talking about it during everyday conversations. I thought this would make the idea of going to the potty a lot less scary. I thought this was a good idea! 

So, part of introducing it into her everyday life, I've started to get her familiar with the things that would go inside of the potty. When she has poop or pee her diaper I ask her, where is the poop or where is the pee pee? This still seemed like a good idea because she started to identify there is poop or pee pee in her diaper. 

One day she did not have on a oneise nor any shorts. She took her diaper off...then pee peed on the floor. Still thinking this is a good idea, I asked, where is the pee pee? She pointed to it. Excited I said good job! While cleaning up the mess on the floor I asked again, where is the pee pee? She pointed to it again and said "where is the pee pee?" I thought, yay making progress.

This time she had the diaper on, and I asked where is the pee pee? She then got an open bottle of water and poured it on the floor and said, "pee pee!"

What the hell??? Introduction to potty training a fail!! Back to the drawing board. This seemed so much easier with the older two.
