For a few weeks now, Harry has been calling his mother by her first name and sometimes by "Dear," a term of endearment that I occasionally use with her. There's little doubt where this came from, especially since his predominant use is to yell it when she is not in the room and he wants her for something. We tried to discourage this right away, but unfortunately it seems that if his mother and I are ever to request each other's attention, then we are going to re-enforce this first name basis addressing. Harry doesn't do it all the time, only, it seems, like when he really needs to get our attention. And, while it has been just his mother until now, today I heard Harry calling me down for dinner using my first name.
