A rose by any other name...


Nora can say everyone's names, or at least make recognizable attempts at them:

"Mommy"
"Daddy"
"Ju-Ju" (Julian)
"Voviver" (Oliver)
"Mama" (Grandma)
"Pappa"
"Nanny"
"Pop"
"Ti-Ti" (Auntie Shari)
"Jenny"
"Kee" (Auntie Kari)
"In" (Uncle Ian)
"Benny"
"Rad" (Uncle Brad)
"Isa" (Auntie Lisa)
"Rordan" (Jordan)
"Bajco" (Jacob)

Up until now, she would not even attempt to say her own name.  It was actually becoming very frustrating.  You could go through the list of names above, and she would repeat every single one of them, then you would say:  "Nora"  silence...

That was until last night.  I was rhyming off the usual list, and I got to Nora... her response?

"Zsa Zsa"

Well, at least her Hungarian Poppa will be happy.

Thank you to my dear friend Tara from Seven Spoons who surprised me by aging this photo.

It think the girl just got herself a nickname.

When Robin was little he used Bin Bin for himself. I can't even remember what Caitlin said. Too bad I didn't blog back then.

I love the photo, and as for Zsa Zsa, it's gorgeous. If only I could have another girl- she'd be Zsa Zsa, it's perfect!
