<p>We're calling our little person critter for now. If another nickname evolves that's fine, but for now critter works.</p>

<p>We haven't settled on a name.  Right now I'm having fun with the silly fruit/food comparisons.  So last week it was "My little Olive" this week it's "My baby Kumquat" and so on.  Maybe we'll settle into a nickname at somepoint. </p>

<p>Last pregnancy, we settled into calling the baby, "Bobo".  I was SURE we were having a boy too and it all seemed to fit.  Then I remember having her and looking down and saying, "I don't know what she is, but she's not a Bobo!"  She fits it much better as a rambunctious toddler though Oi!</p>

<p>My sis-in-law is calling it baby zilla (cause of the havok it's causing me), and I tend to go more with peanut.  That's kinda what it looked like on the ultrasounds.</p>

<p>Our nickname for the beginning is always "the parasite".  Not very loving I know.  But man that is how it feels those first few months!</p>

<p>"Nemo" because when DD saw an ultrasound picture a few weeks ago she said it looked like a fish.</p>

<p>DS was Sammy (a nice, gender-neutral name I thought, although I knew he was a boy from the beginning) all through the pregnancy and we even had a little trouble switching to his real name after the birth.  <img alt="lol.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/lol.gif">  Once in a while I still call him Sammy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This one we have called NextKid since we started talking about the possibility (ie. "let's save those clothes DS has outgrown for NextKid") but that's not very endearing.  <img alt="orngtongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/orngtongue.gif">  DS has dubbed her* VoomBaby...not sure why.  And sometimes I call her my symbiote (anyone else a Stargate fan?). </p>
<p> </p>
<p>*DS insists it's a girl.  I'm calling her a girl this time too because I think she needs a pronoun.  I assigned DS the male pronoun last time because I felt he was a boy.  I am not as sure this time, but I am assigning "her" a female pronoun anyway.  <img alt="lol.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/lol.gif"></p>
