Being a mom is surprisingly much more fun than I ever thought it would be.  What a relief–and delightful surprise!  Ben was reading in one of the dozens of baby info books we have that babies can begin to recognize their name when called.

We decided to try.

It didn’t work.  Until…we called him “Buzzy!”

Immediate perk and attention.

We decided to try again to see if it was a fluke.

We called to him, “hey Matthew?  Jonathon? Alexander? Bob? Freddy? Jimbo?


“Hey Buzzy?!”

Immediate response.

So thus it is.  He doesn’t know his own name, but he thinks he’s called Buzzy.

I think he makes a delightfully cute Buzzy.

  1. That green motif is stunning! I love how green his eyes are. That is really cute that he responds to Buzzy! It sounds like he picked out his own nick name. 🙂

  2. fun post and darling pictures. your little man has his moms smile! his whole face lights up!

  3. Love the pictures!!! So is Buzzy a name that you call him enough that now he responds to it? Or just a random word you tried? Super-cute little family, love the first pic best of all.

  4. Thanks everyone! I thought they were fun images, but you’re always more attached to your own family 🙂 And Vince, we actually have been calling him Buzzy for a long time… and apparently he recognizes that more than his given name since he won’t respond to that! Ironic, since I was always against nicknames…and I’m the one who has gone nickname crazy on him!

  5. Oh my heavens he is way too cute for words! Wow I can’t believe how big he is getting! You look absolutely beautiful as well! Hope you guys are doing well! 🙂
