The Evolution of a Nickname

      Comments Off on The Evolution of a Nickname

Just for fun and because I find it mildly interesting here are the evolutions of my son’s nicknames.

Pregnancy: Munchkin Man
Infancy: Munchkin Man, Little Man, Punkin
Toddler/Preschool: Squishie (this came about sometime after seeing “Finding Nemo”)
Early Childhood: Squishie Fishie (this came about after my mom found gummy fish candies called “Squishie Fishies“)

Elliott Richard
Pregnancy: Marshmallow (what can I say, it seems stupid now but he looked like one of those tiny marshmallows at my 6w ultrasound)
Infancy: Twitterbug (to this day I have no idea where this came from, I was nursing him in the wee hours of the morning and I said it. It fit so it stuck.)
Toddler: Twitterbug and Boo-Boo (again, no idea where Boo-Boo came from)

Emmett John
Pregnancy: Ladybug (before we knew the sex) Tiny (after we found out)
Infancy: Tiny or Tiny Doodlebug (and for the record, doodlebugs are really ugly bugs but I just can’t find another name that fits)
