my oldest is 6- his name is Jack Perry- so he gets JP :) and we've called him JP since he was born- but then he got to school and they called him Jack- so he came home to tell me his name is Jack, Jack Perry, JP...in that order!

my youngest is 4 and weighs more than my oldest(49 to 48 lbs)- and at 4 mos was 21 lbs (JP was 19 lbs at a year) so Tyler has been Moose since he was 4 mos.

Well Owen has the obvious Owie, but more often than not, it's Goober Guts. "C'mon Goober Guts"! He hasn't complained yet. (ps our dog Maggie is Maggie-Daggie-doodle-bop.)

Let's see....Petunia face, Itty Bitty Pretty One, Sweetness, Snooch, Lula, but also Lumpy, Grumpy, and Badness, and Sh*tbird....we tend to be a nickname family, and the nicknames change depending on the mood, activity and age of the recipient...

I called my oldest, Tiffany, Buttcheeks cause they were so cute, My next daugher, Kara, Karabear, Faith was called Punkin butt, Gavin is Mr. Man and Jax, we call Mr. Squishy cause the nurse came in our room after he was born and said: I heard there was a squishy baby in here so I had to come and take a look. :)

My oldest his name is Chad, but he is very tall and skinny, so we call him String Bean sometimes. My daughter's name is Brittny, but we call her Brit and one of my twins is named Cole and he gets called Pumpkin or Pumpkin Nose from time to time. Of course when they are in trouble they get called first, middle and last name.......

Samantha is usually Sam, Sam-sam, Sammie she also accepts Drama Queen, lol. She's 9. Sarah, my husband has always called "sarah sarah marinara" (he likes ryhmes), I've many times called her "my wee banshee", she's usually a quiet child but especially as a baby when upset she could WAIL. And Monkey because she'll climb ANYTHING she can get a foothold on. She's almost 8 now. And Grant who is 18 months, most family call him "G-man", dh usually calls him that, "G-Rex" and Buddy. I find myself calling him Bugs (like bugsbunny) and Bugsy. : )

I call my first Mr. Magoo, baby, or monkey (Owen is hard to shorten!! lol) So far we call my 6 week old Mr. Monkey, Chubster (he is a lot chunkier than his brother ever was!) and sometimes Mr. Magoo (but hubby gets mad as that's Owen's nickname, so he told me to call him Mr. Magee....but it doesn't seem right).

Let's see there is Cam, Cameron Bear, fruit loop, and now currently his nickname that he has given himself is Hobob. His friends all call him that. It started when a friend told him he has mad skills (skittles) like a Hobo. His is just a clown.

Two of our 4 have nicknames that everyone in our extended family use. Our daughter Piper is Snoopy and our youngest daughter Peiton is Noodle. They both call their older brother & sister Bubby & Sissy. Because Peiton is my baby, I call her Pootsie but she refers to herself as Sweet Pumpkin Pie. If a stranger asks her what her name is, she always replies Sweet Pumpkin Pie.

Well I call my oldest son, Tyler, Boog, or now a little Boogster:) My second son, Brandon, I call Budha, and he had the budha belly to go with the name:) My daughter, Lily, has many names, but she is my MiniMe, and Creep other names she has are Niners, Nini, her grandmother calls her Precious Flower. My final child, Eden, well she is just over 2 months, so a nickname hasn't really "presented" itself yet.

I've called my daughter Monkey since the first day she was born, because she would take her toes and curl them and grab ahold of my finger...I said she had monkey toes. She has definitely lived up to this nickname by holding onto me like a monkey and bouncing around like a monkey! lol

My daughter Blair we call "Buggy"! When I was little, my nickname for softball became "Bug" which came from my parents calling me Shelly-Bug growing up. My husband called me Bug before we had the baby. When I was pregnant, I was Mama-Bug. When Blair was born, she was the Baby-Bug because she looks a lot like me. And that's the story of how Buggy has stuck for 2 years now. :))

my oldest son's name is ethan. we call him eenie. this is what he called himself when he was first learning to speak and that is what has stuck for a nickname. my middle son was somewhat small for his age and everyone seemed to do everything that he told them to do so his nickname is boss. my youngest son is only 5 months. he has many nicknames right now such as simple simon, saint simon, pumpkin pie, bubby, etc... his name is simon. and since my nickname is carebear(and then mama-bear once i became pregnant) my boys are my bear cubs :)

Well, because I am hispanic, my nicknames are in spanish. My oldest is Mamita (little mamma). The middle one is Flaca (she's as skinny as I was when I was her age), and the youngest is guera (she's my blonde hair, hazel eyed baby who looks like my husbands mom).

My dad has nicknames for them too and they like his better than mine. The oldest is Dulce (sweety), the middle one is dulcesito (little sweety), and the youngest is bon-bon (just because there were no more ways to say sweety in spanish. LOL)

my oldest (10) was named BOO by his grandparents because they would sneak up and yell boo and he cackled. my middle boy (8) was chunky monkey as a baby because he was so chubby he had "man boobs", but now he's growing so tall and slim that he's just monkey. my youngest son is called the angel because he's no longer with us.
