What's Your Baby's Nickname?


photo by Hadleysmom

My friend Cafe Melisa, who is also CafeMom's awesome Pregnancy Buzz blogger, asked Baby-Mamas-To-Be what names they were considering. I can relate to mommy_bink who said, "I have thought of names since I have been dating my husband. It's fun for me!" I had a list of potential baby names for years ...

And when I actually got married and pregnant, my husband and I spent a lot of time searching for names and figuring out what we wanted to name our baby. Fast-forward to 18 months later. My "precious little pumpkin girl" gets called so many things I'm worried she'll never know what her name is. We call her bugaboo, bug, mama's good girl, sweetie, little sweetie, honey, squeaky, speedy, cutie ... you get the idea, pretty much anything but the name we agonized over. What do you call your precious little person?

Little Angel, scheister(mom always used to call us kids that, I know it means shit head in german or something like it but it's almost a force of habit, especially when he's trying to get into anything he's not supposed to.

I've named my lil girl, Kamari, but I call her Tinkerpoo.  My son's name is Tavante, but his nickname is Honeybunn.  It just felt right...and came straight from the heart.
