What did the Dr check at the 3 year well child visit?

I think it depends on the clinic.. but I remember Logan's 3 year check up the same as the 2 year.. checking his developmental progress, shots, measurements, asking us if we had any concerns... Thats about it.

Did they ask him questions or have him do any of the developmental things or just ask you questions? I thought I remembered someone saying the pedi had their LO do things like walk a straight line, stand on one foot and count or things to that effect. But other than pointing to 3 colors and having him tell her what the were she didn't ask any questions. Just kind of muttered that she could tell he was advanced. Which given that he's always kind of shy around her made me wonder if that was just what she tells every parent unless they have concerns. LOL

is it just me.. or are these differences completely annoying??? They didn't do an eye test or anything for Logan. They did at the preschool screening (they were fine)... but they also didn't point out colors or anything like that - didn't check motor skills - just took my word for it. I do not have a concern about Logan at all... but what if a parent went in that didn't speak up.. how would the doctor tell if there were any concerns if they don't do these types of tests?
