Wordless Wednesday – I have a name!
X has said “DaDa” for a long time. He still says it, which is funny, because the other two skipped over it and just said Daddy.
X doesn’t make the “ee” sound. He says “bird” and not “birdie.” “Dog” and not “doggie.”
Really, he doesn’t say much we understand.
Which is frustrating. For all of us.
Especially because he didn’t call me anything at all.
When he woke up in the morning or after his nap, he’d just yowl until I came in to get him. If he wanted me any other time, he’d just come over and grab my hand or shout abada! or deh! deh! at me.
But just in the past week, he has decided to call me something.
I never thought I’d be so excited – to be known as “Baba.”
He will point outside and yell “aht!” and I will say, “out?” and he will reply “Baba!” because he wants me to go with him.
He’s very pleased with this development. VERY pleased.
As am I.
Anyone can be Mommy.
But me? I’m Baba.
FYI: If you get my feed in your Google Reader you might notice I’ve gone to a partial feed. I swear it’s not to get you to click over for traffic. It’s to stop something called “blog scraping” in which bots steal content. I hate partials but I hate thieves even more.
