Daddy, or...

Due to JJ's multiple hospitalizations and surgeries, he's grown up with a slight speech delay. While he is as smart or competent as any other boy his age, he lacks the ability to express himself vocally. (yes, we are teaching him some sign language)

At this moment in time, his vocabulary is limited: momma, nanna, no, huh, yeah, and a few other babbling vocalizations. He can say daddy, but it takes some coaxing.

Like this evening.

Me: Say 'daddy.'
JJ: (stares at me)
Me: Say 'daddy.'
JJ: Dodo.

Daddy, dodo... eh, close enough.
