Although Ruthie likes to be talked to on the phone, Maddie likes to talk on the phone. She has full on conversations that are completely not translatable. At dinner last night, Maddie sat through the entire dinner with her play cell phone to her ear, conveniently held by her shoulder, so she could continue to eat her chips and dip. It was the funniest thing.
Mark has been gone for the past few days to Harding to see his brother graduate. Maddie has taken this opportunity to bring me my phone several times and say, "DaDa". We then call him and she says "hi", "DaDa" and "bye". After we got off the phone she continued the conversation with him, despite him not being on the other line.
