DS1 is Tristan and he called himself 'TT' when he was learning to talk. That's kind of stuck. DH calls him Doodlebug, shortened to Doodle (but he calls all of the kids that now which confuses ME but not him or them). I call him Triskadoo or just Skadoo. We also shorten Tristan to Tris.
DS2 is Jonathan, NEVER shortened to Jon or Jonny. When he was born, Tristan couldn't pronounce 'baby', but said 'Didi'. My Mum works for a Chinese doctor and he told us that Didi is Chinese for 'Little Brother'. So it's not that DS1 couldn't speak English, he was simply speaking Chinese at 17 months it seems. We still call him Didi.
DS3 is Peregrine. We call him Perry, Pip and Pippin. He's the new Littlest One (or My Littlest). Also FINALLY makes sense to call one of mine "Sweet P."! DH calls him P-Grin which I can't STAND. We've joked that since DS1 is TT and DS2 is Didi, this one should be PP, poor kid!
Collectively they are "My Sweet Boys". Any very endearingly when I call one of them "My Sweet Boy", he'll say right back "My Sweet Mamma"
I call all of them by terms of endearment, too. Sweetie, lovie, little man, darling, babes, sweetheart, pumpkin, peanut. The only one that DH and I have exclusively for each other anymore is 'Honey'.
