Bubba and B

ok so it's been a little over a week since my last post but I am trying. The days go by so quick around here and the nights seem to go by even faster. Even though both kids have technically been sleeping through the night now for over a year it seems like they are now at the stage where they are having nightmares. So i wake up at least once maybe twice a night to screaming kids looking for Mommy! I always wonder why the yell for me in the middle of the night when all day they would much rather be hanging with dad. The joys of mommy duty! They go back to bed quickly but after being waken from a deep sleep to a screaming baby it always takes me awhile to fall back to sleep. It's amazing what a mom can do on only a few hours of sleep. Side tracked for a minute.... back to my original post now. Bubba and B are the nicknames that my kids have given each other. Its so cute when Brooklyn wakes up in the morning and runs straight to Bakers room yelling Bubba Bubba. Baker usually replies with "I am not Bubba I am Baker" but I think he has started to give in to the nickname and just excepts that to Brooklyn he will always be her Bubba. I find myself calling him Bubba more and more these days, he isnt as excepting to me calling him Bubba though. He really loves his name and talks about him self in third person a lot. Im not sure how Brooklyn got her nickname but I'm pretty sure she is stuck with it. Everyone calls her that not just Baker. I think it started because when B was born Baker was only 2 1/2 and his speech wasn't the best. He would try to call her baby but ended up leaving off the ba part and just calling her B. He would tell everyone that that was his B. Lucky for him her name started with a B and it caught on. Now she usually only hears her real name when she is in trouble which lately is about 50% of the day.
They are best friends and I hope they stay that way forever. Baker is very protective over B and is always making sure she is safe and never gets left behind. I hope that's a quality he keeps going into High School and College. Nothing would please me more then sending off Bubba and B to WSU together. We would be very pleased parents!
