Today Miss A and I were in Bismarck for her belated 15 month immunizations and visit to Dr. Kozel. Above is a picture of Nathan and Miss A in the park recently. A strong resemblance?
A is a growing and happy toddler that checked out perfectly healthy, exceeding all of the “milestones”. Other than only having 2 teeth we have no concerns. The doctor has no concerns about her lack of teeth but I would like her to soon have a toothy grin and be able to chew her food rather than gum at her food that is finely chopped and mushed into mash.
But we do laugh after a well-check appointment with Miss A because she is our peanut. She is the sweetest and most sincere peanut. In a family of tall and large people, A is in 60th percentile for height, 30 3/4″ and 70th percentile for weight, 23 lbs. 12 oz. Healthy and more average in size. Now I am always thankful for a healthy child. But our two older children are big, big, big for their ages and so this is our first normal sized child. For that reason, Hunter deemed A today our family “guard”. She is going to be lightning quick, a dribbling machine, shooting the lights of the gym and just not the inside post player. She can be the all-star guard.
Hunter can do a rousing rendition of the starting line up for the girls basketball team in 14 years. “And starting at guard for the South Border Mustangs…number 24, 5’6″ freshman, Miss A Pinke and starting at center, she is a 6’2″ junior wearing number 32, Miss E Pinke”.
I can hear the cheers already.
