Mailande sure is becoming a big girl and is amazing us everyday with all her new talents. She has been repeating words and doing her best to mimic everyone. The other morning she woke up early, so I placed her in bed with us. Daddy was still asleep so she started rubbing his back to get his attention. "Dad! Dad! Dad!" When he didn't respond she stood up and peaked in his face, "Hey Joel!!" That certainly got his attention and we both about died laughing.
