"Senor Fussypants" when crying...

"Fisty" when his little arms are busy flying around...

The midwife and doctor started calling him "Mr. Leo" and "Sir Leo" respectively, and once in a while I'll catch myself saying the same.

I'll have to think about what else, we have several...none of them I hope will stick into later life.

I just am at the stage where i love love love saying her name, Nora.

But I call her sweetpea otherwise (along with stinkers and those kind of silly names...DH calls her pooter shooter )

Sweetpea is the April flower i think. She is such a sweetpea.

Most of my nicknames are variations of his name--Xander-rooni, Xander-iffic, Xander Fussedness (when he's whining or fussing). But also Squeaky, Mr. Man, and a couple others I'm sure I'm forgetting.

It's kind of funny--even my 4-year-old has started calling him Xander Fussedness.

Random-that nickname was given to him probably 2 years before his conception by a good friend of mine LOL
Cookie-thanks to kjoy! Called him that a couple times today because I've been baking
Otherwise...
Grunty
Punkin
Sugar Butt
Punkin Pie
Baby Pie (actually the type of pie varies, but he's definitely a pie a lot of the time)

Life with a toddler: it's not so much the volume, it's the pitch!

DH has been calling him "Little Mouse" a lot. It's from this really wacky British series satirizing those science learn-at-home shows (the series is called "Look Around You" and the Little Mouse thing is from the one on Music... there's a whole song that supposedly, a computer wrote, about a Little Mouse... it's hilarious stuff if you feel like looking for it on Bittorrent or something).

I'm more conventional and just call him Sweetie.

Nacho or Baby Nacho (which is funny considering she's a girl and Nacho is a nickname for Ignacio but my sister looked at her name-Naomi Channah and said "Nacho".)

She's also "small girl" and "squishy"-I have no idea where "squishy" came from but she's adorable no matter what.

Not in your DDC, but I just had to tell you...

My mom's nickname for me was "pooter butt" and it STUCK. In a BAD WAY. She still calls me this, and even as an adult I am eternally embarrassed!!! Don't let that one stick!
