"Tone, Mal-Mal!"

Both of my kids can move rather quickly when it's important to them to do so, but in general, Mallory is the biggest dawdler on the planet! J says she gets it from her mother, to which I take offense. Jake has learned that his sister is usually lagging behind him when I'm trying to gather them to either go up or down the stairs. In an effort to remedy this, when he reaches the stairs, he looks back over his shoulder & yells, "Tone, Mal-Mal!" in a very exasperated voice. (Translation: "Come on, Mal-Mal!") It cracks me up every time.

I bet they will be like that their whole lives. Mark's brother is a dawdler and to this day it drives Mark crazy!

That is so cute! It is so fun as they get older to remember all of the cute ways they used to say things. It almost makes you sad when they start saying things the right way!
