Day 605 - What's In a Name?

Emma and Andrew are not only becoming better at recognizing names, but they attempt to say them too. Of course they can say "Mama" and "Our dear, wonderful Dada", but we have been teaching the kids to say Grandma and Grandpa.

Emma is actually pretty good at mimicking words, but Andrew struggles a little more. The other day, we were testing Andrew's pronunciation of our names.

"Can you say 'mama'?" I asked Andrew.

"" he answered.

"Can you say 'dada'?"


"How about 'grandpa'?"


"How about 'grandma'?"

Andrew thought for a second and then said, "...kaka..."

Lisa and I obviously laughed at Andrew's response, but it became even more surreal when Andrew pointed to his poop and said, "...kah-ray-zee...gand-maaa..."
