Happy Birthday Kristi

This is the story of a baby girl that was born 27 years
ago in a far off land called Arizona. Her mother was nine months pregnant, and
bowling one night, when all of a sudden she felt a bit of a labor pain. Since
she was having a really good game (and this didn't happen very often) she
decided to continue. The labor continued throughout the night, and since
she was scheduled for a cesarean the next morning she decided (because she was young and stupid) not to wake the doctor and wait until morning to go to the hospital.

At 6:39 A.M. that morning a beautiful Chinese baby girl was born.

She was called Kristina. She was

8 lbs. 2 oz. and 22 inches long.

She was a good eater and at 3 months old had grown a second chin.
Her mother was so worried about the look of her wrists and ankles she
took her to the doctor. She asked the doctor what the folds were where her
wrists should be and the doctor just smiled and said "fat".

At 6 months her mother covered her fat ankles with socks, but
you could still see the fat wrists. It was after all too hot in AZ to wear
long sleeves.
But at 9 months, she seemed like a very happy and normal baby. Actually Kristi was the perfect baby, always very happy and smiling. Just like now.

This story is to be continued because I am still trying to figure out how to work the scanner.
I will leave you with a glimpse of Kristi a few years later.

Happy Birthday Kristi.
