Poor Baby Keene..... Undoubtedly, he or she will be given a nick name or two (or ten!) by Mommy and Daddy. It will probably be embarrassing, maybe even humiliating by the time he or she is in middle school, but it will definitely be cute and endearing! The reason I am so sure such a name will be endowed upon him or her is because just today I have probably called each of my two dogs by three or more nick names and do so regularly.
Baby's nick names include:
* Baby Girl
* Puppy Girl
* Presh (short for Precious)
* Doodle Butts
Lacy's nick names include:
* Lacy Bear
* Sissy Girl/Bear
* Snuggle Bugs
(She doesn't have as many because she hasn't been around as long as Baby has!)
Of course, they are both referred to as "the girls" or "girlies".
The funny thing is, they know these names and respond to them. That's how often they're used.
While I was talking to Baby Keene the other night, a nick name just slipped out! I immediately just stopped and Wes and I just looked at each other and shook our heads. We know he or she is doomed....
How about you all? Do you have nick/pet names you use for your kiddos? My friend, Kristin, had a whole post about all the nick names for her precious little girl, Sarah Kate. I'm assuming this is something all parents do, though I didn't really have any growing up, other than "Tiff" (which, by the way, everyone in my family calls me. I don't remember the last time they used my full name, whether talking to me or about me.). Share those cute little names, Mommies! :)
