Lucy has never named her toys. They are either their real names (Bert, Ernie or Cookie Monster) or just what they are (baby, monkey or doggie). But today she called this little friend Cama. Her cousin also has chin-length, dark hair. Perhaps this is a new phase of pretend play.
Lucy does refer to herself and any one or anything around as Jane, Michael, Chimmey and Mary Poppins from her latest favorite movie. So don’t be alarmed if she calls you Jane or Michael or says definitively, “I’m Michael.” Before you know it, she’s Mary Poppins abd ready to step in time.
