Many of you are familiar with my sweet little Ellie Grace! Shes 18mo!!!!
As you may remember we were threatened with DSS for suspected neglect at 12mo simply because cutie was "to small" at almost 15lbs and 28in. And since we refused to give formula they weren't happy. We've since switched pedi's.
She went for her first visit with her new pedi on tuesday.
He walked in and engaged the older 2 asking questions about how they like Ellie, if she cries or bites etc. he then listened and checked out Ellie. He commented on how strong, active, social and talkative she is. At the end of the apt he plotted her height and weight (just over 17.5lbs and just under 30in) he shrugged and said well shes tiny but I bet it's from trying to keep up with the older 2. Asked if she eats meals with us. Yep. He knows she still nurses and has no problem. He was very happy with her!
INCREDIBLY GOOD VISIT!!! The first dr we haven't had a problem with!
So yep 18mo!!!! Still nursing! Not night weaned....yet, but it's coming lol.

Thank you! I'm still hesitant to get to excited lol. Even after we left I said i absolutely love him....for now. Been down the crappy dr road for almost 4 years since Leilani was a baby. But he has excellent reviews in our area. So i think over time my hesitance will disappear and i'll be able to truly trust him!
