Niece-isms.

My niece, Abby, is 2. She's just started to talk. She calls me "Ni" and Brandon "Wookie". (At the time she was born, B was the only family member with reddish hair who was furry in the face.) "Ni" sounds like knee.

When we first visited her, she and her uncle greeted each other "Wookiewookiewookiewookiewookie" "Abbyabbyabbyabby" Wookie" "Abby" "Wookie" "Abby"...They'd still be there, but they both decided to follow Ni.

She refers to the two of us as "WookieNi".

We took her to feed the ducks the other day. When you are 2 and the ducks waddle up to see you and are your height, they're very scary. You might shriek "No, no, duck" in an imperious tone. The duck failed to obey my niece. "Abby," I said, "would you like to feed the duck?" "No!" she said, "*I* eat!" That will teach that duck. Mess with my niece, you don't get fed.

addendum

So my parents took my niece back to the duck pond theother day.

Abby gave away all her bread except for one piece that she wanted to eat herself.

A duck charged at her and then *took* that piece of bread.
