Currently "dada". DD calls everyone dada who isn't mama.

Eventually, they'll both be Grandma and Grandpa <insert last name here>. That's how I was raised.

Re: what do your lo's call their grandparents?

My oldest made up the name Guyla for my mom when she was a baby and it has stuck so mich that all the kids call her that. My dad is Papa and sometimes Big Papa (he is 6'8").
My in-laws are Grampa and Gramma (well would be if we were on speaking terms with her). My grandparents are and always will be Nanny and Poppy to all that know them. DH's grnadparents are Gramma and Grampa also.

Re: what do your lo's call their grandparents?

my parents: Grandma & Grandpa Freddy
my grandparents (dads side): Grandma & Grandpa Daisy
my grandma (moms side) Grandma No Pets
dh's mom: for now is just Grandma, but will likeley become either grandma milo or grandma tigger
dh's dad & stepmom dont really have names.. they rarely see them and thats the way i like it

My neice started the trend of ientifying grandparents by their pet's name, and while its unique.. i find it cute and it has just stuck.. for now my kids tend to just say grandma and grandpa because they are just beginning to talk, but we still refer to them by the names i posted

ETA: I know its rather common, but calling grandpa 'papa' throws me off.. in our home 'Papa' is how the kids refer to their dad. And I'm 'Mama'.
