On Friday morning, Mailande started crawling. On Saturday, I swear she said "mom" again and again. Dad doesn't believe it and she won't say it around him (I think she's trying to spare his feelings, because she hasn't yet figured out how to say "dad"). Today, she is 8 months old! I can't believe how big my little girl is getting. Could someone please tell her to slow down, she is growing all too fast.
