auntie or dodo??

So, I realized I haven't posted in quite awhile (which is strange because I HAD been posting pretty frequently)...anyways...

I'll share a funny story with you all. I've been trying to get Cole to say "auntie" probably....well, probably since before he was even born. He can say 'Mel' and he even says "on" followed by "tee" when prompted but "auntie"? Yeah, that's a whole other story.

I digress...onto the funny part.

Lately, when Stefanie or I (because, let's face it, we're pretty much the only two people that try to get him to say auntie) ask him to say "auntie", he decides to call me.....

....

....

dodo. I kid you not. It's not like he doesn't know who I am because when you say auntie, he looks right at me or points at me. But when you ask him to SAY auntie, he decided that "dodo" would be much more appropriate. I'm hoping that since he's all of two, there's no meaning behind this...haha.

I was also going to say that I'm hoping that 8 years from now, my nieces and nephews aren't calling me "Auntie Dodo" but now that I'm writing it out, I suppose it could be a lot worse than it is huh?
