Baby or Baba?

via Daily Prompt: Baby

There’s this funny way of speaking ‘the English’ in my part of town.

“Oh, so you are a grandmother. Congratulations! A baby boy or a girl?”

“No,no, not baby, it’s baba”

Baba is baby boy and Bai is baby girl in the vernacular, but they will insist that the boy is not baby, he is baba.

Is baby too feminine? 😊
