Annika went through this phase where she really didn't want much to do with Derek. She wasn't nice about it at all either. It was hard to watch her be so mean to Derek especially since he is a really great Dad. But lately that has started to change. On this particular night Derek was supposed to go meet some guys from church for dinner. He was getting ready to leave and Annika started screaming and crying and begging him to stay. It was so sad and sweet at the same time. Anytime he tried to put her down she would cry and wrap her arms and legs around him and plead with him to stay. Of course he did and they sat on the chair and watched cartoons.
