  • Baby Nicknames

    December 12th, 2021
    kids
    Lily and Anna rarely call Nora by her name. Instead, it's always nicknames, with lots of variety. For a week starting on Thanksgiving I counted how often they used different terms:

    21 Norkit (Anna favorite)
    20 Nwetzel (Lily favorite)
    16 Norky
    9 Cuddleezel
    7 Norka
    7 Nori
    4 Norit
    4 Cuddleitz (former favorite)
    3 Norweasel
    3 Norklet
    2 Norkla
    2 Cuddlet

    Terms I only recorded once: Cuddleez, Cuddlehat, Cuddleoo, NW, Norahats, Noranoo (former favorite), Norba, Norcuddly, Norfi, Norfkit, Norflea, Norfo, Norfu, Norito, Norkakit, Norkaloo, Norkanoo, Norkita, Norkito, Norko, Norkwinza, Norkwitz, Norquo.

    I counted each term once per "session", where if they said "Norkit Norkit Notkit" I would still only count that once, while if an hour later they said "market" again I would give it another tally. Doesn't include any sessions where I had my hands full or otherwise wasn't able to easily tally.

    It took me a while to get around to posting this, during which both kids, but especially Lily, have started using "Kaia" a lot. Asking Lily, she says it is "short for Cuddler".

    Your actual output depends on a lot more than just how quickly you finish a given programming task. Everything besides the literal coding depends deeply on the way you interact with the organization around you.

    Buckingham Palace

    I love England. Especially because of the big castle called Buckingham Palace. I got to see the outside there, but my mom showed me some pictures of the inside. I love it there. But the outside doesn't look very fancy to me. But I never knew why those …
