Inches (Blogging through the Alphabet - I)

Sixty-five inches. That's how many inches Amber had grown to by the end of the year 2015.  From the child who, due to illness, paused growing for almost two years at fifty-seven inches and feared she would never see five feet tall. She has now surpassed me by slightly over one inch, and is STILL growing.

Although the more she grows the more difficult her joints find it to support her size, we are thrilled she has achieved a height that makes her happy. Most of Amber's medical professionals believe she will grow even more still, which makes her quite giddy.


Here's to 2016 bringing Amber only a couple of more inches!

  1. Happy New Year! Amber is taller than me and Jeremiah, too! If I am remembering correctly, Amber has a birthday coming up soon, doesn't she? Well, anyway, It's always a pleasure to see Amber's beautiful smile!

    1. Good memory! She has a birthday in less than 2 weeks. We will be back to our normal schedule starting Monday and then take only a day or two off for her birthday this year.

    1. Thank you! You are tall! Amber aspires to be that height. Her dad is 6'3", so she has a chance. Doesn't your son have a birthday coming up too? I thought he was very close to Amber. She will be 14 in 10 days :-)

  3. What a cute 65 inches she is! I love the sweater vest that she's wearing.
