Today, I was fired from my babysitting job because the baby’s first word was my name. Well, I’m sorry, but if you ask me to look after your child 14 hours a day, 6 days a week, and by the time you pick them up they’re already asleep, of course they’re going to know my name better than yours. FML

She probably does. I've heard people talk to babies saying shit like "Now Casey is going to watch a movie with you. Casey is going to put you to bed. Go asleep for Casey. Good baby" a lot of people talk to babies in the third person so they start speaking that way.

My thoughts exactly. So long as the parent(s) have that schedule, this will happen with every babysitter or nanny. At this point, that kid might even feel like it was taken from its parent, since almost every last one of its waking hours was spent with OP.

The babysitter is doing everything right.
Up to 2/3 years children will not know what you mean when saying "I", "me" etc.
But they recognize names (and mommy, daddy and so on).
Instinctively parents and other caretakers will speak in the third person with a child "Come to mommy...daddy will change your diaper...Casey will give you a bottle".
So the mother is too damn stupid. The babysitter/nanny here is doing a good job talking to the child a lot.
