Baby girl is adding to her vocabulary. Currently, anything that is alive and not a person is a “doggie”. Everything else is “nana”. She also calls me “momma” (which is alright with me). She has been know to say “poppa” on occasion, but a lot of the time he is “momma”, too.
Recently, she added another word (I was trying to figure out if it is a noun, pronoun, proper noun, etc….if, after you read this, you know please tell me…this especially applies to my father-in-law, the former high school english teacher).
She was getting into some frames with photos in them that I have been meaning to hang up on the wall (for months). I took the frame from her and said, “That’s your big brother at his first Christmas.”
She replied, “Bo-bo.”
I said, “Yes, that’s your big brother.”
Again, she said, “Bo-bo.”
Sounds like the little guy just got a new nickname.
home is…an expanding vocabulary and sibling nicknames.
*My little sister couldn’t say Stephany, but could say “Ne-ne”, so that was the beginning of my sibling nicknames (which evolved throughout the years). Did your sibling have a nickname for you? If so, what was it? Did it change throughout the years? Do they still call you by your nickname?
