A New Name

I am a nickname junkie - Just about everyone I know has one. My parents are "Homer and Marge" (oh yeah, they love it!!!), Hubbs is "Farmboy", "Honey Bear" or "Do", Hattie is "Boo", "Belly", "Puddin' Pop" or "Girlie", depending on the mood! And Sophie has a few too - "Bug", "Soapy" or, at times, "Bubba Gump" - gotta love Forest Gump!!!

But today, it seems, Miss Sophie gave herself a nick name.

Now, to set the scene, Sophie's vocabulary is growing daily. Her first word, however, was Dada. She LOVES her daddy. And, once she said that one, Hubbs and I both began a quest to get her to say Mama. She did ... and then she stopped. And proceeded to start calling ME Dada too. And then giggle. She thinks she is oh so funny!

So we regularly go through every one in the house and their names. Point at Hubbs - "Dada", point at Hattie - "Hada" (that is what Soph calls her), Point at Sophie - "Sophie", Point at me - "Mama"! She goes through it all and ends with me and says "DADA!" and laughs her little head off.

Today was a little different though. We never even made it to Mama, because every time we got to Sophie she would shake her little head and point at herself and say "Baby".

Every. Single. Time!!!

Which got me thinking about this:

Every. Single. Time.

And then I read about our little friend Belle's day HERE. And seeing that little pic of her in the corner makes me wanna watch the movie just so I can see the last scene and hear Patrick Swayze say ...

"Nobody puts Baby in the corner!"

Yeah, I am a sad, strange girl.

6 of ya left some love:

Quirky, I love it. I haven't seen that movie in so long... I certainly don't know any lines from the movie. I may have to go rent it.

I've noticed that are most definitely a nickname junkie! Never known of anyone with more nicknames for people! Too cute that little Sophie is already hammin it up over there at B Manor. She's growing up so fast.
