this one's for you mum
He has finally relented. Z man could say grandpa, grandma, daysa, metta, and every other family member's name just fine way back in June when we were in Utah for the summer- but he absolutely refused to say Nannie Annie. Even when my mom was here in August and offered to pay zeb's future college tuition and buy him a car- he wouldn't budge. He never even attempted it. Just yesterday I showed Z a picture of nannie Annie and asked him to repeat her name. He said it perfectly. Today he'll only say "nanna anna" on video- but I think it counts (although it sounds eerily familiar to how he says banana). Maybe you could at least get him a toy car (or train) for finally saying it, mum!
Background info= Nannie Annie refuses to go by grandma and goes by "Nannie Annie" instead. She says she isn't old enough to have grandchildren- which is absolutely true. Just because she's married to the grandpa doesn't make her a grandma.
