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?

My baby's name is Kyan (rhymes w/ Ryan)... so we have the obvious, Ky (short for his full name). The other names we use frequently are Peanut, Baby Lovin', Thing 2 (second born), and Sweet Pea... because he looks reminds me of Sweet Pea from Popeye.

My older son has even more names... His name is Leland, and we call him Le for short. Then there is Squishy, Potato, Sweet Potato, Goose, Goose Baby, Pumpkin, Goofy, Big Man... the list goes on and on.
