7 months old

Sydney is now 7 months old she had a dr. appt last week and she weighs 23.4 lbs and 29 in long !! She is over the 100th percentile ! off the charts ! So she is doing great ! She got 3 shots which she did great with. We saw a different dr. and they wouldnt even let me hold her which pissed me off a little because I have always held both of my kids during their shots since they were born, I just wanted her to feel safe with me holding her while she was getting needles injected by strangers. I didnt really like the dr. I saw that day, she tried telling me that I should wean Sydney from breastfeeding.. GRRR... I am a strong believer in breastfeeding. I breastfed Blake for 18 months and I am most definitely giving the same benefit !! There is no way I would consider weaning her now... I like my dr. because she supports me in all my decisions, we couldnt see her because she was booked. The dr we saw thought Blake was 5 years old ! lol Thats how big he is ! He is so shy ! every time he sees anyone he covers his face.
Everything is going great though ! I am still exclusively breastfeeding Sydney which is great ! I love breastfeeeding it is such a special bond with your child that I will cherish forever. She still isnt liking solids that much.. she will eat a little bit but she really doesnt like the texture of mushy foods. but she loves to eat hard things like teething biscuits....
Blake and Sydney just have tons of fun together, it seems like he is the only person to make her laugh lol. I can tell the will be close growing up ! I will have to get some videos up of them playing together, it is pretty funny to watch. I will have to upload those tomorrow and get them on here. :)

Thanks girls :) not that theres anything wrong with weaning at 7 months but the fact that she was telling me I need to that it would be best like she has bf long enough ! ugh... I am glad my regular dr isnt like that.
