Zoie and Gahky

My Zoie Boie is 20 months old today(!) and says a few words. Some of the words she says frequently are: Puppy, Cheese, Juice, More, Mommy, Daddy, Riweee (Riley), Benweee (Bentley), NO!, Bubboo (Bubbles), Cookie. ...

She does a babble kind of talk, she might be saying actual words, but I honestly have no idea what they may be. BUT, 2 days ago, as we were sitting on the couch and looking at pictures, I realized she did, in fact have a word for her big sister: Gahky.

I got super excited! I said, "Roxy! You are Gahky!!" In my mind, Roxy would be totally psyched that Zoie said her name. But in the real world, she was sort of kind of angry.

Roxy looked at me in an almost grossed out pouty-sad face and said, "I do not want to be Gahky."

I, for the record, think that Gahky is super cute with secret hopes it could stick to be a family nickname... sigh. My fingers are crossed she starts to like it.

On the other hand, I know Roxy will not always be Gahky to Zoie. But I sure am in love with it right now.


Also, since I'm adding in baby book like details right now, I'd like to share that both Christopher and I think that Zoie is definitely the most focused of the 4 Deneweth children. And the neatest. At 20 months old, she will push a chair in after she gets up from the table, fold and put away clothes (in their proper place), throw trash away, put empty dirty dishes in the sink, use silverware properly (and a napkin!),  even point out spots on the tile that need to be wiped up. It melts my heart.


What kinds of childhood names did you have growing up? Did you love them or loathe them? Tell me all about it.

<3, Tabi :D


  1. I was Nikkisoup, sissy, and Harold. Nikkisoup to kids at my daycare when I was 6 they thought they were making fun of me but I liked it. My lil sister Brandi called me Sissy for the longest time now she calls me Cole. I was Harold to my dad. When I was lil I had a imaginary friend named Harold and told everyone so my dad decided to call me Harold. It never bothered me.
    As you know Ian calls LJ Bubba. And I love the way he says it.
    Is Gahky pronounce Gah-key?

    1. Haha. Harold. I think you've told me that before...

      Yes, Gah-key. Like Roxy, but replace the R with G and X with K.

  2. I was Kate-O Potato (thanks Dad) and my sister Kelly's nickname was Moo (she went through a series of nicknames and Moo eventually stuck). I think Gahky is a super cute nickname. :)

    1. Kate-O Potato. :)

      Does your sister like being Moo? I love that one, super cute!!

  3. I called my brother Trash for a period of time. His name is Travis.

  4. I had a nickname... and I kinda still do. But since you already know it, I won't put it out there :)

    Also, I used to be called TT, that one's not so bad.


I love feedback, thanks so much for sharing.

Have an awesome day.

xo, Tabi :D
