Brennan's 6 Month Appointment & More

Brennan had his 6 month check up at his pediatrician's office this afternoon. He weighs 16 lbs. 2 oz. (25%...dropped down from the 50%), and is 26.5 inches long (50-75%).
He is a very social baby. Coos and babbles and smiles...when someone is holding him. Put him down and he's just a screaming mess.
We changed his formula back to Enfamil AR on Monday, and he seems to be doing better, again. The pedi. told us to go ahead and start the solid foods back up again, so we'll do that tomorrow. I'll also try him with a sippy cup soon, though since he's not holding his bottle yet, I don't see how it'll be any good.
The doctor re-checked his ears, and he STILL has fluid behind his right ear. We just finished a round of antibiotics for that last week. He said that it is 75% full, and is surprised that it is not a raging infection. So he perscribed us a broad spectrum antibiotic to see if that helps. I have to bring Brennan back in in 2-3 weeks for a re-check. Honestly, I'm hoping that the screaming fits are due to the fluid in his ear...because, if we can clear that up, then we can stop the screaming!
We are just starting to sign with Brennan. I'm hoping that I can do more with Brennan than I did with Colin.
Brennan is going to be dedicated ot the Lord on Saturday, and I'm so excited. We got a bunch of family and friends that are going to witness in our celebration. We plan to have lunch at a restaurant after. I'll definitely post pictures of that!
We leave for our family vacation in Florida in a week. I'm excited to go, but a little nervous about the car ride. It's only 12 hours to Destin, and I'm pretty sure that it will be ok, but you never know. Beach, here we come!


  1. I pray that his ear clears soon as does the crying. We are so excited to witness his dedication to the Lord. I also can't wait to see your pics from your vaca and hear all about it

  2. Sound like the boy is growing just fine. I hope you get his ears cleared up, poor little guy.
    Sending blessings and prayers to you all as your son is dedicated.
    I hope you have a wonderful trip to FL!!! I wish it was closer to me!
    Take care.


Leave me some love!
