    HA! this is cute … my baby used to refer to rabbit’s as “Henry’s” and guinea pigs as “Lucy’s” because in showing him pictures of our old rabbit and guinea pig, I’d say their names (Henry and Lucy) LOL …

    Babies are awesome whether they have their own mild case of baby OCD or their own lexicon LOL …

    Thx for your comment on my post, btw …

    While singing Old Mac Donald to my girls, I make an interesting farm with frogs,owls, monkeys living in harmony with cows, lions, and dogs. Animal sounds are the first thing they learn. What they learn about farms, is a different story.

    ck~ But does Mama=Mama or is it Dada? You’re always in Two’s thoughts 🙂
    Poly~ supercute! And I enjoy your blog.
    tlc~ That’s so cute and creative. That would make a great name for an imaginary animal!
    Court~ How adorable!
    Gibby~ LOL Now did they get that from their Mama?
    ymk1~ LOL Well at least they’re getting a wide variety of animal sounds. But you’ll have to tell us how it goes when their teacher asks the students what animals live on the farm. 🙂
