A few months ago, I started a little series about each of my five cousins. Last, but not least, is Melana. She turned 11 a few days ago, and is the youngest of all of us (and the only other girl).
I can't imagine a life without this fiesty gal! She is softspoken and shy, but once she opens up she is bubbly and full of laughter. She is probably the wittiest person ever--she is only 10 and already the queen of one liners. Melana has a spunky style that is super fun, and she is quite the fashionista I babysat her for many,many years which gave me an opportunity to really get to know her and to watch her grow up. I have a special bond with Melana and am beyond grateful that I've had the chance to be a part of her life. I love my Laney girl!
