My Name is...

Jibby!

That is what Bridget is calling herself...Jibby. Or Jibit. I can't even type it without giggling. (Jibby is Bridgey. Jibit is Bridget.)

Her speech is much better than we once thought it might be, and she can say lots of names clearly. Why, oh why, couldn't we have selected a name she would be able to pronounce ;)?

  3. Yep. Kira can't say her name, either. She's "Ear-ah". I LOVE Jibit!

  4. I think about this too. I can't decide what name would be easier, though.

    Jibby is awesome!

  5. That's adorable! It's common to hear the different consonants and mix them up at first. Sounds like she'll get it just fine, but Jibby is adorable for now. Someone said we shouldn't name our baby "Luke" because John Michael won't be able to say "L's" very easily. I take that as a personal challenge :-)

  7. We're already calling her Jibby half the time :). She used to say Gigi when she heard us say "Bridgey"...which was super cute. But Jibby is just plain hilarious. And for some reason, it fits her.

    A few examples of names she can say clearly: Sara, Emmy, Abbie, CeCe, Wendy, Brooke, Peg.

    It is a good thing we didn't name her Lexie (her cousin's nickname). She calls Lexie "Sexy".

    Monica, Bridget can pronounce the "L" sound very well...but when I ask her to say Luke, she says "Boop". She can say "TJ" clear as a bell, though ;)...

  8. How cute! Boop might just make for a cute nickname! :-) But Bridget, that's awesome you can say "TJ"! Whenever I've prayed about a name, Luke is the name I hear. We'll see..... Around here, Thomas is a train.

  9. Cracks me up.....I love Jibby and Jibit!! I read her pronunciation for Luke, so funny...Reid calls our Luke "Gook" or "Gookus".

  10. Five still has trouble with the "r" sound. The other day, he was saying "rat", and I couldn't understand him. He was so mad at me! I thought he was saying "what" or "wet".
