Naun.

19 11 2012

She calls me “Naun” because she can’t pronounce “Shaun” yet.

The first time I heard her say it was during a car ride to some place or the other. Will was driving. I was in the passenger seat. Avery was in his car seat behind his father and Aurora was in her car seat behind me.

“That’s YOU, you know?” Will said to me after Aurora had shouted my new name from the back seat.

About a week later, during a phone call, Will told me that Aurora had taken to saying “I love you.”

“Wait until she says ‘I love you, Naun.’ because your heart will melt,” he said.

This past Friday found the four of us back in the car heading to this place or the other. Will was driving. I was in the passenger seat. Avery was in his car seat behind his father and Aurora was in her car seat behind me.

“NAUN!” shouted from the backseat. I turn to look over my shoulder just in time to hear the follow-up “I love you.”
