While at the beach last week, Michael watched a few minutes of a Disney show called Zack & Cody. He thought Cody was a cool name so he decided to adopt it for himself. He even told his mom he would tell the child-care worker at the gym about his new name. He informed me at McDonald's on Monday. Previously he shortened his name to "Mike." He even signed my dad's Father's Day card "M-i-k-e." But Mike is a normal nickname for Michael. Cody is just a name he liked and decided to call himself.
Note: This beach picture was from August 2007 not this most recent trip.
