|Little Bear and Pap|
|Little Bear and NanNan|
After spending most of this weekend at my in-laws, Little Bear has taken to saying Pa instead of Grandpa (obviously a 14 month old would find Pa somewhat easier than Grandpa!) so now we are all referring to him as Pa too. This got me thinking about parental nicknames and how they are given and what they mean.

|Little Bear and Grandma|
So far Pap works and Little Bear has renamed Grandpa as Pa. He hasn't really attempted NanNan or Grandma yet, so we'll have to wait and see. But I can't wait to find out what he comes up with! I think that it shows a special relationship when a grandchild is able to "name" his grandparents and I think that they like it too.
