Henry is on the verge of saying Mama (we think. Or maybe he is already saying it, and we just don't realize that the intent is there, you know? Or maybe it is like a year off and all the mamamama is meaningless babble). So his ability to learn and understand and repeat language has been on my mind.
So.... What all do we call boobs, and nursing time? (To those babies who go on to nurse into an age when they might start to verbalize it, just a little.) Henry's caregiver calls it to her's "ney-neys", and a girl friend calls it "num nums", explaining that her older daughter started running around asking for "boobs". I don't go in for anything too cutesy, but yeah, I am thinking I don't want him running around asking for my "boobs" in the future. I'd love to know what you call it!
