I have started calling my little baby 'coconut' and 'little coconut'
what do you call your baby?
We started with "blueberry" when it was that size, then moved to Zaytoon (Arabic for olive), and then to Mishmish (Apricot) when it hit the size of an apricot. It's now much bigger, but the name stuck, so we just call the baby Mishmish. We won't be finding out the gender before the birth, and it's kind of nice to have a "name" for the baby that makes it more personal without knowing if it's a boy or a girl.
There is an intense gender debate going on at my house. DH calls baby "Bam Bam", his sister calls it "Pebbles". Our 5 yr old makes up a new name every couple of days. Last one was Leah. I call it "Angel Baby" but I don't say that out loud because it sounds like a miscarry kind of name and I'm kind of paranoid about that.
We call it whatever fruit it's supposed to be matching in size that week. This week it's "apple," but my favorite was kumquat :). We also call it "the baby," and alternate she/he/it a lot. I have two prey friends who call their boys "Larry" and "Chuck" just for fun! But sometimes people really think it's the name they've chosen and that's even more fun!!
