What nicknames do you call your baby?

Mine is Monkeyhead, Grinchy Face, and Birdie, depending on his/my mood.

my 10 yr old dd calls him "dude" or "boy" (as in "hey boy/dude, how are you doing") and "cutie" -she calls him cutie so much that my fil is telling her she owes him a dollar every time she says he is cute (it IS obnoxious to hear it over and over and over ... lol)

dh calls him "sluggler" and "grumps"

I usually say "my little man" or "sweetheart" or "super pooper" (he poops non stop ...lol)

our parents call him "Danny Boy"

Nothing has really *stuck* yet

Our 3 other kids have nicknames that have stuck and now EVERYONE (even close family friends) call them by those nicknames- we have Kris Clueless or KC (long story), Allie Baba and Jenny Bear

I call Ellen "Elly Roo,"Sqeaky", or "Grunt Monkey," depending on my mood and the noises she is making... dh just calls her "Boo."

Nothing has really stuck for her either, not like "Sofie Bean" did for Sofia at about five days old.

Totally understand that!!

I started calling Judah "Judah Bear," and now my DH and kids call him that, too. My boys mostly say, "Hiii, JuuuDAH!" Ah, yes, the affections of a 3yo! The constant refrain is liable to drive me batty. :

Umm... Other terms of endearment... Boo, or Judah-Boo, and some of your standard stuff like Little One, Little Bit, Sweet Boy, etc.

Jackson is sometimes called...

One Eyed Jack the Pirate Baby (he had a goopy eye for a while, clogged tear duct, and it would stick when he woke up.. sometimes if he is just waking up, he still opens one eye to look at ya!)
The Frog Prince (when he wears outfits with frogs on them, or when he is curled up like a frog)
Jack-in (Felicity has always called him this)
Jack-Jack (from the Incredibles)

Little Man, Tiny Boy, Tiger, Baby Love, Son...

We call dd Bean, Bug, Luvie, Precious Girl and Monkey (well, those are the commonly used names)

When my parents were visiting my Dad called her squeek because she makes noises- especially when waking up (we call it her 10 minute stretch).

12 yr old is "D" short for Cody (2 yr old DD 1 named him) and DD1 is Boo (started as bubbles and somehow mutated) but so far we just call Victoria Tori I guess because her preplanned nickname still seems wierd and I just want to say it until we are comfortable with it.

we call ds pretty simple things like "little man" and "buddy". he is the first boy out of 5 girls in my family, so we're all about affirming his gender!!
also, his belly button was getting a little gross waiting for the umbilical cord to fall off, so for a while, he was also "smelly button", lol!!

I call Laynie LaynieBug or just Bug, or Chunky Monkey. DH calls her Babyboo or LaynieBug when he thinks I am not listening.

Her name is Xianya, pronounced Zee-on-yuh, dp started calling her Zee-onion, he uses a... I guess French accent when he says it... his attempt at a French accent
DD1's name is Hypatia and dp started a pet name for her of "pater" then he started calling her potater,
I didn't like the pet name potater but it grew and I accidentally use it sometimes and I don't like Zeeonion but again, I accidentally used it yesterday!
So now we have, a potato and onion.... the new joke is that we need to get some "meat" (a boy) which I don't really find funny b/c a 3rd child would be the end of my sanity, which is wavering currently

We call her Butterball and Chunky Monkey because she is over 13 lbs already and has outgrown all her 0-3 months clothes.

We also call her Wheezer because she makes little whhezing sounds while nursing or sleeping on your chest.

Also, Sarah Bear/Sarah Bearah

Daniel makes a honking sound when he is nursing or relaxing so I have been calling him "goose" - sounds like a gosling in a flock of geese

When my first was born, out of the blue one day I started calling her Fluffalump, now I just call her Fluff, for short. I also call them love, babes, bum. My hubby came up with his own nicknames for them, and while they laugh now, we joke their gonna get complexes later about them! They are as follows:
Abigail - Flabigail, Flabby or Yadigail
Madison - Flabison, or Madigail

And we just call Georgia - George all the time, since she's so tiny and girlie its really cute to call her an old mans name. I have no idea why! LOL...
