Name Association

Tonight after dinner we were talking to Amy, my cousin, and getting Cooper to identify things, and say whatever random things we thought of. Cooper heard a mower outside and thought it was an airplane. I told him that it was a mower like uncle Jared has. He started saying "Uncle Jared, Uncle Jared," so we asked "Who lives with uncle Jared?"
C: "Uncle Jared."
Us: "No Cooper, who is uncle Jared married to?" Obviously 20 month olds know what marriage is, right?
C: "Uncle Jared."
U: "Cooper, Jared and..."
C: "BeBe!" We thought that was kinda cool so we asked more.
U: "Neecie and..."
C: "Tony!"
U: "Mammy and..."
C: "Pappy!"
U: "Emily and..."
C: "Tony!" We told him that was sort of right, since she is his kid and she lives with him. Anyway, it was a really fun game and we never would have guessed that Cooper could associate all those people with one another.
