  • 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".

    Light Switch

    When I got my loft bed it was just so annoying every morning to have to get out of bed, climb down the ladder, turn the light on, and climb back up, just so I could see stuff. I decided to make a string for my light switch because I really wanted to be abl…
