Dr. Bell was pleased with her developmental progress, and we discussed time-outs (redirection is no longer cutting it) and Lydia's resistance to brushing her teeth. We also discussed the signs of potty training readiness. I am not anticipating seeing these signs any time soon, but it was nice to have the conversation and realize that, if Lydia is potty trained by 3, we may be past the half-way point in terms of changing diapers. For now, Lydia enjoys not only having a diaper on her bottom, but one used as headwear also. (That's a swim diaper she's sporting on her noggin.)
We will not see Dr. Bell for another well check until Lydia is 2. That is the longest stretch between well checks, and it makes me feel like our little girl is really growing up. Remember, we started off seeing her every week, then every two weeks, then every four. Now we're up to six months!!! I feel like the saying "the days go slowly, the years go quickly" is definitely holding true.
