Do you already have a nickname for your little one(s)?

I started calling her munchie for some unknown reason and it just stuck. I call her that so much that she probably will think it is her name! Dad calls her PJ - short for pride and joy.

I like PJ for pride and joy-- Awwww!

I call my little peanut "teddybear" since his name is Theodore.

Other than shortening 'Jackson' to 'Jack', we also call him 'Sweetpea', 'Muchkin', 'Mr. Magoo' and 'Magoo Face'. The last two are because he looks like a wrinkly old man

Little Buddah - because when you sit her upright she looks like a Buddah.

Squeaker - she has the cutest squeaky noises she makes when she's sleeping and nursing!

Dh is the nickname one around here. He calls her "Little Critter". He called older dd "Little Bit". He started calling this one that adn I gently reminded him that dd needed her own nickname....he couldn't steal older dd's.

It was peanut, until lately when tank and tanker truck became the new names... that is because he is already 11 lb 9 oz! At only one month and two days old!

Ok, we are really bad with this. Each of my kids has so many nicknames I doubt they know their ACTUAL name sometimes. Here are some interchangeable ones:

From Big Sis: Beanie Boy, little man, brother boy

From Me: Brother man/ Other man, bruva, teenie beenie (adaptation of beanie boy)

Here are the baby specific names:

From Daddy: Kieran b'neiran and Owen b'gowen, and Big K and No'mer
From Big Sis: Little Mr. Owen and the rhyming names above
From Me: Little Mo (adaptation of big sis's little Mr. Owen) and Kier Bear
