Anybody who knows my daughter knows that she is deathly afraid of strangers. Or anybody for that matter except her mom and dad. It is getting better now but before and at the beginning of this last summer....it was bad. She would walk around the store all happy and the second somebody would say hi or something to her she ran screaming for dear life. Well the summer started and as she went to the office with Ryan every day, she got a little better since everyone wanted to hold her and play with her (without any success :o) ). One boy was different tho. Mark Whetten. Ryan's childhood friend. She was seriously in love with him. He could hold her, (she even reached out for him when I was holding her!!!) play with her and even take her for a ride in his car and take her to his apartment for a bit without any problem. Impressive. Mark is back in Texas and Kaylee hasn't asked if she could call him yet, but I'm curious to see what happens next time we see him!
