That's about all I have. I have left a few messages, but have not heard back yet. She noted on her voice mail that she also works for the school district three days a week in addition to her private practice. Busy woman. I have a feeling that once she does call back it will be a while until we actually see her.
The therapist did tell me to get an appointment set up, even if it's three months down the road. If we get there and the concerns no longer warrant an evaluation, we can cancel. I liked hearing this from the therapist, as it seemed that whatever is going on with Morgan is not a huge issue.
Just wanted to let everyone know where we were in the process. Morgan is still making progress, so that is good news. We'll keep you informed on how she's doing and any new information we might receive.

I expected this though. We hadn't been to the gym in a while and Morgan always takes a few days to get used to it again. She cried as I was leaving. I waited and she calmed a little. I made sure to say goodbye and that Mama will be back soon. They said she started crying again pretty soon after I headed upstairs. They put her in the same room as Piper to see if that helped, but then Piper started crying. Uh oh. Last straw.
Sigh. We'll try again tomorrow.

David sings the jingle from a Carl's Jr. commercial to Morgan. It goes like this...
"Yippee Ki Yay, Mini Sirloin Burger" (three times)
Here is Morgan's version. You can also hear her "one more time" as well. Warning...you may need to turn the volume up on the computer to hear her sweet little voice.

It sure makes up for a day full of toddler whining and refusing to sit on the potty.

Today I was helping her jump on a pillow (she usually tries to jump on me, but we've managed to redirect that to a pillow now). After the second jumping session she said all by herself "one (more) time," then jumped for a little while, stopped, said "all done." Then she got down off the pillow and walked away. I didn't mind her jumping a little more and sat there a little puzzled when she went off to play with her kitchen. I just shrugged my shoulders and thought to myself, "OK, I guess she's done." Then I just had to giggle a little.

Two days ago Morgan pooped in her little potty for the first time. Yay! Grandma and Grandpa B were here. After lunch I changed Morgan's diaper for her nap. Right away she grabbed another diaper, said "poopy" and ran into the bathroom. I ran in there after her. Took off the diaper and sat her down. I read her a story and sure enough, she pooped! She stood up, looked in the potty and said "poopy"! We clapped and cheered for her. She was so proud of herself!
Today after lunch I suspected another poop was eminent...so I took her in the bathroom and sat her down. Again, we read a book and she pooped!! But...this time she peed a little and set of the sensor in the potty chair, so music started playing (remember how much she liked hearing the music?). No, this time she stood up and starting a combination of crying and screaming. She ran into the living room and I chased after her in fear of her sitting on the carpet since I had no time to wipe her. So I'm trying to wrestle this screaming child so I can wipe her butt while telling her she did a good job at the same time! I'm not sure she got it.
So, we'll see if she goes near that potty again. I think I'll be disabling the music feature. Too much trauma.

I can't believe I haven't blogged in a week. Oops! We've been busy moving furniture in our house, preparing for Grandma and Grandpa B to arrive and enjoying their company. They are here until Wednesday. I hope to have an update before they leave. Oh, and I also got myself an iPhone yesterday, so any free time I have is being used playing with my new toy!
More soon and pics of the cuties! They are awesome!
