Little M is very caught up in the fact that people, animals, and even toys have names…
If something does not already have a name, she will pick one for it.
Our car’s name is Lillis (or “Lillith” when little M says it).
The other day we walked past a gray car in a parking lot, and she said, “that’s just like our Lillis!” So presh.
Her stuffed frog’s name is Oswaldo. No, I don’t know where she heard that name, or how she came up with it, but she thought for a very long time before deciding that Oswaldo was appropriate.
We take a lot of walks on a wooded trail by our house, and every time we see an animal, little M wants to know what the animals name is. Since I usually don’t know, she makes one up.
There was a little squirrel in the woods this day, and his name was “Shippy.” Shippy was also very funny, as you can see.
