Potty Training ‘Oops’
“…she didn’t quite make it to the potty, so she climbed in the ottoman and went. Hmmm…that’s not in my potty training book,” Rory captioned the hilarious photo below.

So so precious,” Rory added.Indy is Ready to Handle Winter Weather A Million Dollar Smile, Just Like Her Mother Indy is thriving and growing up so fast! Last month, Rory shared a positive update about his daughter’s latest medical checkup.
“Indy’s six month heart checkup. The hole in her heart is getting smaller, and she is getting bigger and more beautiful,” Rory happily reported along with a series of photos from Indy’s doctor appointment.
As Rory has explained in past This Life I Live entries, Indy has Down Syndrome and was born with a small hole in her heart.
“The first thing they had to do was give Indy an echocardiogram to fully check out her heart. I had read that many babies with down syndrome are born with a severe heart problem that requires open-heart-surgery right away. Though our midwife had checked Indy repeatedly since her birth for any sign of a heart problem (murmur, etc..) and hadn’t found anything to fear, it was important to get her checked out completely to be sure,” Rory and Joey shared with fans just days after Indy’s birth at home.
“After a few more tests, we sat in the waiting room waiting for the cardiologist Dr Moore to come in and tell us what they learned. When he came and sat with us, he looked over Indiana again very thoroughly and said, that she does have a whole [sic] in her heart, but it’s a small one, and not the serious one that they look for in baby’s with down syndrome. Her heart problem most-likely in time will heal itself and that we will all just keep an eye on it and come back and have her checked from time to time,” Rory candidly explained.
Thankfully, Dr. Moore was 100 percent correct and Indy continues to make progress.
