same name

Baby Swiss is very into her full name lately.  For the purpose of this post, let’s just say her full name is Baby Swiss Cheese Mouse.

The other day at church, the other teacher in her class wrote her first name on her color page and she said, “But I need my Mouse name too,” and insisted that her last name be written on her paper.

Also another day recently, she pointed at the monogrammed pillow on Mr. Mouse’s and my bed and said, “That spells my Mouse name.”  (She also will tell you that “D spells me!” but give her a break – she’s learning.)

So, we start talking about how Mama and Daddy have Mouse for a last name too.

And so does Pipsqueak.

And so do Grandma & Grandpa.

And so do Uncle & Aunt.

And so do cousins 1, 2 & 3.

And so do Daddy’s Cousin and Great Aunt and Great Uncle.

You get the idea.

I ran out of people who actually share our last name after lots of pleas of “Who else?”

So, then Baby Swiss asked, “What about T?”

No, she does not have the same last name as us, but it made me think we must be doing something right that she gets that she is not just another one of our friends who we see.

    Elizabeth also insists that E is for ME! I don’t think she knows her whole name though, we’ve almost never used it around her.

    That is awesome that Baby Swiss gets it.

    I loved when we played this name game. With all of her cousins, neices and nephews Mea would get a little confused as to who was a Monkeysoup, and who wasn’t.
