"Dr. Goldbach, is she exceptional in any way?" I ask at Gigi's two month appointment. He pauses with his stethoscope in mid-air and laughs. This is what Doctors have to put up with from me, and I'm relentless. "Because I just find that when I come in for appointments I want you to tell me that she is exceptional in some way".
"Well", he starts after a minutes pause, "She's cute...".
But he's catching on! Five minutes later as he's looking over Gigi's weight and length stats that the nurse jotted down, he says, "Wow! She's at the 85th percentile for weight, and 90th for length. Now that's exceptional!".
