Out of the mouths of babes...

My dad has been visiting with us for a couple of days. J only met him once before when he was 5 months old, so right now Grandpa is pretty much a novelty. He knows the alphabet song! He has a yo-yo! And a mustache! The funniest thing so far is J's pronunciation of "Grandpa," which is a new word (TH's dad, being the Southern guy that he is, is called "Grandaddy"). First it was "Gappa." Then that graduated to "Paw-paw." This morning, he finally settled on "A-bampa." Only, it comes out sounding kind of like "Obama."

"J, who are you voting for in November?" (point to Grandpa).
"My man."

I was interested to read your blog. As a parent you may be interested in being part of a university study I'm involved with. It’s about how infants and children develop. It wouldn’t take much of your time, and it’s a great way to contribute to knowledge by reporting on your own experiences. For more details go to the following address after copying it into your browser window, or go to and click on "Baby Sleep." Best wishes, Rebecca
