We have several nicknames for our wee ones. They have evolved as the kids get older, until the next thing you know we are calling Noah Turtle and Amelia Moo.
The evolution of Noah's nicknames:
Noaster-poster-postumous (there is a song that goes with this one)
Burschel the Turtle
We most often call him Bird or Turtle.
The evolution of Amelia's nicknames:
Her list is shorter because she is younger, obviously. And none of hers have a song to accompany them. Poor second child. I need to get to work on a song, what sort of mother does not have a crazy nickname with accompanying song for their 4 month old?! But you can't force these things, people. Nicknames (and songs with the nicknames) need to happen organically. You just can't start calling someone Moo out of the blue. That's weird.
A Turtle, a Moo and their Mom.
