Evolution of a nickname

"Courtney" is a really hard name for little kids to say. I'm actually surprised I never really got a nickname from having trouble saying my own name as a kid.

Weekend trip 1: As we're getting ready to leave WV, Emily says to Owen, "Can you say goodbye to Courtney?" Owen says "Bye Cookie!" I say "Cookie - close enough!"

Weekend trip 2: Cassy has no trouble with 'Matt' but doesn't even attempt 'Courtney.' I tell Carly "Last weekend, Owen called me 'Cookie.'" Carly says "Cassy, where's Aunt Cookie?" Cassy says "Kiki!" and points to me.

Two toddlers and two weeks to Aunt Kiki. Works for me :-)
