Ian recognizes Rich and I in photos and it sort of blows his mind to see photos and videos of himself. But he's figuring it out that he can be here in the flesh and also there inside the iPhone. When you ask who that little boy is, he will try to say "Ian." It usually sounds roughly like "yan" (one syllable). Today, though, he was trying to make it more of a two syllable word and it came out sounding more like "onion."
This would be where GrandDaddy feels justified in all his concerns that Ian would be hard to say. Let's hope his pronunciation improves before he tries to introduce himself to a girl in a bar.
