thanks for your replies...it's just so good to be supported in the (hopefully good) thing we are doing. i am extra psyched because we're going to visit the grandfolks in a couple of weeks--who by the way are *waaaay* skeptical on ec--and i am just so happy to think that we might spend the visit diaper free and be really confident about it. i don't want to get stuck on it and think that i have to "show them", and i definitely don't want to put pressure on my baby girl...but i really think this might be a turning point (at least for now) since today was totally diaper-free, too! even when she just had to pee a teeny tiny bit, she made sure i know. she's learning how to turn on the faucet in the bathroom sink where she usually goes, too, and *loves* the water, so it's fun that she looks forward to going potty in more than one way(:
anywho, thanks again for the support--i love that everybody on this board is so supportive and reassuring that we are doing a good thing, but helps me also keep in mind that my baby girl is first, and i don't have to prove anything to anybody. you guys are great!
