Does every family assign a collection of goofy petnames to the same sweet little lovies they so painstakingly poured over baby naming references to find the perfect fit for? I hope we're not the only ones.
Check out the list of monikers our kids have collected already:
Binky T Barnes
Pipa (she has many variations on this theme, referring to the unique noise she was famous for as an infant)
Doodle (short for Hope-y Doodle, Momma's Noodle)
Bubby (that would be a baby/buddy slur)
I do love having special names for my babes and I tend to use them often. I think a nick name has to grow on a child, they can not just be assigned. (I would have never dreamed up BT for Gavin). However, it super douper urks me when others, who overhear our special pet names, think it is okay to use them when addressing our kids. Excuse Me! I gave those children perfectly lovely real names. Please use them....;)
How about you? What endearing nicknames have you acquired or assigned?
