Growing up my family had certain words we would use for objects. Not made up words but words we would call things. "Woobie" was our blanket. We had a word for poop and so on. Since Piper has been born we, or I should say I, have been trying to get her to call things a fun nickname but unfortunately they haven't stuck. Her vocabulary has really been in full swing lately and she has come up with some doozies all on her own.
