So this week has been devoted to potty training. FINALLY, after three previous attempts spaced out over the past eight months (I think?), we had some success. We've been using a timer for reminders to sit on the potty, and celebrating successes with balloons, ice cream, and fun toys like stickers and blowing bubbles. V refuses to wear underpants so it's mostly "au naturel" at home, and pull-ups when we go out. The pull-ups clearly feel exactly like diapers to her so I'm not sure how useful they are as a transitional item.

Anyway. My goals are modest: to be using regular underpants and mostly accident-free by Christmas.

I don't think you'll have any trouble reaching your goal. The timer worked really well for us and worked as a good intermediary in that I didn't have to constantly argue about whether or not it was time to try to potty.
