Growing Up...

Allison had her six month well-baby appointment yesterday. She is growing so well! I have been worried about it because I was not able to breastfeed Emily due to severe MSPI and have been successful with Allison for six months thus far. Honestly - it feels GREAT to say that! BUT...it's a whole new experience to breastfeed this long so I never know how she is doing. Emily was a chunkster because she was on formula and Allison isn't as chunky as Emily was. BUT she's doing good with her growth - even with MSPI!

She is now 16.1 pounds and 26 inches long! She is in the 50th percentile for weight and dropped from the 90th percentile for height to the 75th. Doctor said she looks great! :)

I took this picture yesterday while she was napping in our bed. She looks so peaceful...so beautiful...so comfortable!

I'm SO proud of you! What a sacrifice you have made to be able to breast feed her for this long.

Glad to hear she's doing so well! She's beautiful. :)
