We have never really called Abe by his full name.  Sometimes we sing him a dorky little song that we made up with his full name in it, just so that he will know his name is more than just Abe. 

And I guess we haven’t really called Joel by his full name either.  If it isn’t Joel, or baby Joel, it is one of the other nicknames we’ve already created for him.   Last week we ran in to a couple from our old church.  They knew Kyle and they'd heard about Joel.  They made a comment such as "This must be Joel Kyle."  Big brother was paying attention.  The rest of the afternoon he was telling us "Joel Kyle."  It looks like this little guy might end up going by more than just a nickname.  We'll see what sticks.
