Jessica playing Peek-A-Boo....It's kind of nice that her birth name is the one we're keeping. "Jessica" and "No" are the only two words we said that she understood and she wasn't too fond of the "NO" so at least she responded favorably to "Jessica".
There's something about that tone of voice that you use when you are playing Peek-A-Boo, though... it's the same tone of voice everywhere, I think. You know the one.... where she puts her hands over her eyes and you say,
"WHHEEEERREE'S Jessica???? WHHEEEERRREEE'S Jessica???"
and then when she uncovers her eyes you say,
"THERE she is!!!!"
and everyone claps and you all agree it's the best game ever and you play it again.
Yeah, that's the voice. She totally gets that. That game rocks (apparently).
Nathan, on the other hand, doesn't know his name is "Nathan". His birth name is "John Peter", and we're not keeping it. He'll catch on, but for now, we just keep saying his name and trying to get his attention at the same time.
