I know our baby cannot hear yet, being that my wife is only 7 weeks pg, but I still talk to her belly every night, and plan on doing so, every night, for the entire time she is pregnant, lol....So anyhow maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago, we were talking and she said something about the baby only being the size of a poppy seed. For some reason, that just stuck in my mind, so now I refer to the baby as "Poppy"
Whenever I call from work to check on her, I'll say "How are you & Poppy doing?" or when I talk to her belly, I'll say "Hellooooo Poppy, mama loves you!"
I hve a feeling that the nickname will stick around, even after the baby is born...Even though, obviously.....It won't be the size of a Poppy seed anymore! ;)
