6-month checkup: Brienna Elyse

Weight: 17 lbs, 13oz. (81%)
Length: 27 inches (90%)

Brienna is doing swell--still nursing exclusively, for which I give praise to God alone! I was never able to nurse much past this point with the other two, so I'm thrilled to pieces that we're doing so well in that department. I've been guzzling mother's milk tea and trying to get more rest & drink more water. As a result, God has given the (noticeable) increase!

We've been growing increasingly disappointed in our pediatrician of late. We're quite non-mainstream as far as health care is concerned, and the girls' doctor has been giving me a pretty rough time. We never expect people to agree with us, but we do appreciate those who respect our decisions... especially when it concerns the care and upbringing of our daughters. We hope to secure a doc soon who is better suited for our family.

Brienna started crawling a bit last weekend. (!) She loves her johnny-jump-up and spends most of her floor time rocking on her hands and knees! She's still the happiest baby we've ever met, and we praise God for this gift!
