Charlotte has a nickname for Alex that I finally asked about today.
We were driving home from picking up Sarah from kindergarten when both girls started with their singy chant, "Doe BA-by, Doe BA-by, Doe BA-by." I've heard them sing this before but I couldn't figure out what they were saying so I asked.
Me: What are you saying, ladies?
Char: Doe BA-by
Me: I can hear what you're saying but what does it mean?
Char: I call him Doe Baby because his skin is pushy, like dough. And he's a baby so I call him baby. He's a Dough Baby.
Both girls: Dough BA-by, Dough BA-by, Dough BA-by.
I guess we all come up with nicknames for people and things. Her term of endearment makes total sense now that I know that she's saying "Dough Baby". She's a tactile learner/person so she defines things by how they feel. And I have to admit that his "pushy" skin IS kind of like dough so I get it.
