We have a sub-forum type of thing for Dads, how about one for Grandparents? I bet my mom would be into that.
I think I was singing "The Ants go Marching" when DS smiled for the first time . Nowdays he likes to hear "Old MacDonald" for all the animal sounds, and sometimes participates with me. My parents used to sing a silly song to me about a little green frog, and the sound the frog makes in the song is made with your tongue hanging out, so we (my parents and I) sing that to DS and make him laugh.

My son calls it ninny. It's an easy word to say that's also discreet. My mom used it with my bros and I when we were all little, so that's where I got it. She told me that's the word her momma used, but my dad's mom used the same word. I wonder if any MDC mommas use it? I tried to teach DS the difference, or maybe the similarity, of ninny to cow's milk, which he also drinks. I got him to say "momma's milk" and "ninny milk" and he'll call it that sometimes. My...
