My daughter has been interested in what goes on in the bathroom for over a month. I tell her what I am doing, then she waves bye bye as I flush it down. Sometimes she makes her way around to the handle to help mommy flush it down. She can tell me with a nod or shake of the head if she has a pee pee diaper or poopy diaper, and now is always correct. She only speaks the usual baby words like MA MA and DA DA, but just recently mimics different sounds in any series of two or three, and really tries to accurately pronounce words like dog or cat. She walked at nine months and has really increased in her mobility, and can step up and down easily with the help of a hand or if she is feeling confident she will use a railing or doorway for support. I think she would be ready to introduce the potty..but what is the first step? Is it okay to take potty training for a test run?
