When Did I Become "Dad"?

Rachel's taken to calling me simply "dad" now instead of "daddy." Ah, they grow up so fast. Mommy has become mom sometimes, too. Then again, Rachel is now up to three self-appointed nicknames... Che Che (chey chey), Rach (raych) and Jake. (??)

Some other great recent quotes:

"Watch OnDemand."
"What?" asks Lori.
"Watch OnDemand. Supposed to."


As Lori is unbuckling her to get her out of the car she hands her baby to Lori and says "Here's the baby. Don't drop it."


Umprompted, an hour after receiving it: "THANK you mommy guitar wiggles guitar."


After throwing her bag of bunny grahams down onto the floor in the backseat and then multiple requests for us to retrieve them are denied...

Silence for awhile.

"I'm sorry."
"What for?" asked Lori.
"For throwing bunny grahams on the floor."

Was she sorry? Probably not. But it worked anyhow, she was given something else to snack on. (The bunny grahams were out of our reach.)
