  • My daughter isn't born yet, but I talk to her all the time anyway (actually before I was pregnant, I used to talk to myself quite a bit, so I'm thrilled to have an audience); anyway, I've taken to calling her "Sugarplum" and I have a feeling it will stick . . .

  • We call our son "Monster love" (ML) because he demands and consumes large quantities of breast milk, much like we imagine a monster would. And, he roars like one when the milk doesn't come quick enough or in sufficient quantity. ha ha. We also call him "turkey" and "munchkin" and "nu nu" (chinese name his asian grandparents use).

  • These are so cute! We have lots for our toddler girl. My favs are boogie-woog and snickle-snort.

  • My dear daughter is AKA "Pebble" and when she is throwing a tantrum "poor sweet baby" (This one is applied to anyone in our house who is whining, as in, "You poor sweet baby, do you need some attention?")

  • I'm not very original, but my youngest son has always been "bubba". it started when he was about 5 months old. He weighed about 20 pounds (quite large). He's now 9 years old, and skinny as a rail, so it really no longer fits him, but it has stuck. He'll even sign his cards for special occasions..."Bub". I think it's here to stay :-)

  • Schnookies for my son. I don't like Schnookums, so it became Schnookies. :-) - Paula.

  • My seven-year old daughter Sarah is sometimes referred to as "Sass" or "Sassy" from her baby days of trying to say her name. My two-year old Jacob has many names from "Jake the Snake" and "Jakey-Jake" to "Crazy Little Man" as he is so active and always getting into things.

  • Our daughter is/has and always will be referred to as Peanut. :) It's because she's so little. Now that's she's a little bigger (she's nearly 3).. I call her Peanutty. Heh.
