Nobody puts Baby in a corner!

Sophie refers to herself as Baby. I don't know why. I've always called her Sophie, Soph, Sof-a-rof, or some other derivation, but she has decided that she is Baby. As in, "Baby's shirt!", "Baby's bee-are! (bear)", "Baby's Bible!"

I guess this is OK, because although she is an accomplished mimic and can repeat almost anything you say (especially when you don't want her to!), her pronunciation of her own name leaves a lot to be desired. Much like Will said "Da-ba" for "Ransom" well into this third year, when everything else came out clear as a bell, Sophie's pronunciation of her name somehow comes out "Dad-dis" which sounds very similar to her pronunciation of (you guessed it) Daddy.
