DH and I are coming up every day with new names to call DS. Here are a few:

-Heat seeking missile (in the night he could move miles to get close to a warm body)
-Alien baby (In a dim bedroom, he looks like an alien staring at me in the night)
-Chunk, Porky, chubby, chunky monkey
-Sweet Pea
-Sucker (he has quite the suck)
-Munchkin

What do you call your little one?

Laura, Troy, Seth 6.24.06 , and Aaron 7.13.09

We're still just calling her Squeak! Though now she is grunting and growling as much as she is squeaking.

If she accidentally comes off the boob before she is done nursing she GROWLS at me until it is back in her mouth!

For my 4 y/o ds:

"Buttermilk" (breast feed baby ) People who don't breastfeed look at me like "What did you call that child?"...
"Pumpkin"
"Baby girl"
"Fifi" * this one will stick I am sure. Everyone calls her this. It's cute now, but she will probably HATE when she's older.
"Fi"

Her 4 y/o used to call her "Seaweed"... we have no idea why. The only thing we can think of is that he loves rice cakes with seaweed seasoning!

Bu now he calls her "Fifi" or "Fi"

The Parrot is our new one... when we cover her eyes she gets quiet, just like a bird goes to sleep when you throw the cover over its cage

I started off calling her squirt or Little Squirt, but I don't want her to have to explain this to her friends as a pre-teen. When she poops, she squirts and if you don't wait for 2 squirts, you'll get suirted. So now I call her precious and pretty and baby and such. Dh calls her punkin. I often call her Mattie, Mattie. I figured this out listening to Emma talk to her and repeatedly saying her name twice. WHy I do this I don't know.

Jessica, mama to Emma, 7, Mattie, 5.5 and Lilly, 3 and someone new this Halloween-ish.
