Nika is reckless.
I gotta give the girl credit though ... she is a go getter. When she first started walking ... heck, even still ... we refer to her as the drunken sailor. She is all over the place ... and when she runs, it is so funny. Cute, but funny.
She tries to keep up with her brother and sister the best she can. But physically ... she can't always do that. Although I think someone needs to clue her into that ... because as far as she is concerned, she can do everything they can do.
And I give her credit for that.
But it leads to injury. And I'm not sure she cares ... as long as she can follow her brother and sister around.
See that top left tooth? It didn't always look defunktified like that.
That is courtesy of Nika jumping from the ottoman to the couch ... just like her brother and sister. The problem is she can't really jump. She sort of walks ... and falls forward.
Which is totally fine. If you fall onto cushions.
But the back frame of our couch is hard. And so is the console table behind it.
Common knowledge would tell you that when an open-mouthed-toothy-grin hits a hard surface ... you are gonna end up with a defunktified tooth.
The dentist says it is fine. The tooth has been pushed up into the gum ... who knew that was possible? The tooth may move back into position ... or ... the tooth may die ... or ... the tooth may stay right where it is.
Looking all defunktified.
So we wait and see. And we hope for no more injuries.
