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 oldest daughter's nicknames are just versions of her name- Mik Mik, Mikkers, Mikaboo, Baby Mik or we call her Princess because she was born thinking she was one. lol  When I had my middle daughter, my MIL called my husband Taterbug so she wanted to call my daughter Ladybug. Ladybug got shortened to Adiebug and then just Bug. So she is Bug, Bug Bug, Buggers, Bugaboo, Buggie, etc. or Adabug (like ate a bug lol). When I was pregnant with my youngest, my DH's Grandpa asked if she was a little Cadydid so she has always been Katydid, Katers, Katybear or Lil Bits. Yeah, I'm weird, I know. :)

My little girl's name is Mollie. I call her Moll,Her Uncle Jo jo calls her pooterI feel sorry for Mollie as she gets older because she NEVER should have farted on her uncle joe the first time he held her! She will never live this name down and it will be so funny to explain to her boyfriends!!

My poor baby girl gets called Emma Lou Poo Poo- her name is Emma- but not Lou it just rhymed with Poo Poo.  when she was teeny tiny she would only have a bowel movement every 5-7 days! (we did check with ther pediatrician and they said don't worry with breastfeed babies) anyway...when she finally went, wow.  Grandpa gave her the name and it stuck.

My son's name is Daniel. When I had my first sonogram done my mom started calling him Bear, cause she said he looked like a teddy bear in the pic. He's called Bear by my mom and others today. He's also called Dano, and sometimes Doc. I started calling him Dano because it's just shortened down from his real name and easier. He answers to them all and still answers to his real name to.
