First potty-training hurdle down!

We've been sitting Laurel on her potty first thing after waking up for a few weeks to get her used to sitting on it, but the doctor just seemed to ignore that that was progress for us at Laurel's checkup a few days ago. This morning she peed in it, so we are celebrating.

For the interested, she was 39" tall and 33 pounds at her checkup, which was at 3yrs 2.5mos. I wish I'd asked for one of the other doctors in the practice as the two that had done her previous checkups there actually sat down and were more thorough than our assigned PCM there, who did the Thursday checkup. She seemed more concerned with her bowel movements and the much-improved "lazy eye" in her left eye. (The base clinic didn't think it was an issue, so she's never had it evaluated by an eye doctor. It's barely noticable now compared to when she was 18-24 months old.) Se insists on referring her out for the latter, but our medical coverage ends in two weeks and the only pediatric eye specialist Tricare covers here is at Children's Hospital, which is usually booking five months out. *shrugs* Once she's covered by CHP+ I'll see what they cover for eye exams.
