Baby Nickname Explosion!
Our daughter is not even a month old and she already has a laundry list of nicknames.
- Lower-case M
- Emily Bear
- Cranky McCrankerson*
- Miss Cranky Pants*
- [pet name for wife] Jr.
I’ve started calling our younger cat "Nursery Cat" because she sits near Emily when she’s in some state of crankiness. She also likes watching us feed or diaper the baby. Belle was always a weird cat.
What nicknames did you come up with during your child’s first few weeks? Care to share them with the rest of the class?
*Those three were probably conjured up around 2:30 a.m. Please refer to Figure 1 (above).
