Peanut, Peanut Butter

How do I get myself into these things?

One of Laura's nicknames is "Peanut". Matt dubbed her with it when she was a tiny, tiny babe, and she did look a bit peanutty. The rest of you could probably see this one coming.

Yesterday, I gave her some peanut butter, which was a new taste sensation, so I emphasized its name: peanut butter! She repeated it gleefully a few times, and decided she liked both the taste and the name.

Then she toddled over to Emily, who was sitting placidly in her bouncy seat, and said:

"Emily butter!"

If anyone has brilliant suggestions about how to explain, I'm all ears....
