S/O What's your LO's nickname?
Now I'm curious what people call their kids at home - not like Matt for Matthew, but the pet names you only use with each other.

DH started calling DD "The Goo" very early on, and sometimes we expand it to "Googlet" or "Caroline Goo." I made her a onesie with the Google logo font that says Googlet ;) Sometimes I worry that she will think her name is actually Caroline Goo instead of Caroline Kei!

My sister has a daughter she named Elizabeth but we have all been calling her Woogie since she was baby. She's 12 now and prefers Elizabeth but she still gets Woogie a lot. :D

Kearnan goes by Kear-by and Kare-bear and Kearny Tharen called him Kerny for years because he couldn't pronounce his name correctly.

Tharen was supposed to go by Rennie but it never worked out that way. When he was a baby he was Lumpy or Buddha baby. For a long time he was "Dukie" because he followed me like a duckling and if I would quack he would respond and it helped him keep up on walks ect. He also responds to "Therbs" and "Therbie". He isn't crazy about his name because he has a hard time with the "Th" blend (we are finally getting past it) so he kept insisting he would change his name. For months now he has been going by "Dandelion Fluff".

Croix: He is usually called hoots. This was a nickname that started because when he was a baby he would make a hooting noise CONSTANTLY.

Noah: Egg or Eggy. This started one day when Croix was read a book about baby chicks. He kept calling him his eggy. I asked him why and he said because babies come from eggs and Noah was his little baby egg. lol It stuck.

Riley: Buddha, Buddha-butt (lol), Buda-pest and Wally. We have called her Buddha since she was little. She was a skinny tiny baby with a big buddha belly. :wub: Her brothers later on started calling her buda-pest because we call her buddha a lot and they think she is a pest. lol They also call her wally which really pisses her off. She used to not beable to say her name and it would sound like "wally" so now they walk around calling her that. It is usually a sure fire way to see a fight in this house.

Nugget, Babe and Sweet Pete. My oldest is just Jordan, but I sometimes say Dornan, because that's how Babe pronounces it.
