Trying to think of threads to start!
Do you have pet names for your LOs? Seth's name doesn't lend itself to any traditional long or short versions but I've been known to call him Sethilicious or Sethaniel (weird, I know). I have always called him Sunshine as well. Then, a while ago we took him to visit my nan in her nursing home and one of the ladies there said "oooh, a lovely little squidge" when she saw him. So he's been Squidge ever since!

William was called 'Wee Man' for a while, then it was Totes (because he was totey) then it was Toots (his bum does a lot of tooting) and it's starting to mutate into Toots M'Goots. his "normal" pet name is Willis.

Ruby gets called Roo and for a while was also Moo , that was mostly by H!
Orla doesn't really have any shortenings but H often calls her Trouble! So much so that R will say "trouble's coming" when she comes in in the morning.

We call S squidge too (or squidget) no real reason why! We also call her Little Chimp because of then little noises she made as a newborn, it's kind of stuck.
I said to H the other day that we really need to use her actual name more often otherwise she'll never recognise it!

My H calls F sausage or sausage boy! I call him Finlaybobs, fin-fin or lambchop...no wonder he's not responding to his name yet!!

Aveline doesn't really get many linked to her actual name, although at Halloween we did carve a pumpkin into a baby face design and called it Aveslime haha
She started of as The Professor (no idea why), and now gets professor pudding, pudding, pud-pud, pud, and occasionally stinker or stinker bum!

Don't ask me why but my H calls my bump Abraham! I think it's because when we were adopting there was a little boy with that name and H thought it was cool. So we now have our very own Abraham!

I used to say to O, 'who's a monkey' and he would smile so he was called monkey alot then we got his finger print taken for a pendent and the woman that did it called it his little smudge (rather than a print) and my H used to call him smudger and now it's merged into monkey smudge and no idea where this came from but I also call him monkey chopper!
O is sometimes sausage too SP but when he does something new he's a clever sausage!
I have no clue how he knows what his name is, it's a good job my mum calls his by his actual name or he would hardly ever hear it!

C gets called Casey chaos, Boo, munch, chunk, pud.
J gets various shortenings of his name (of which there are plenty), plus munchy, widge, Winston (he resembled Winston Churchill when he was tiny), bean, jelly bean (his nickname from when I was pg - it stuck)

My bump is known as Paperclip and I think that'll be a nickname that sticks once they are here too

Bump was ALWAYS Baxter. I only slipped up a couple of times in the first week and called her Baxter.
She's Aggers. Agnes Wagnes. Agnes Wagnes pudding & pie. Hungry hungry hippo (even though she's lean).
(Popcorn - I was about to start this thread last night - coincidence!)

A few beans on here - that's what we called my bump. We also call each other bean, like "you're being a grumpy bean", a "mean bean" or "happy bean" - I have no idea why!
Nenas I love that A was called The Professor, that's so cool!

We call A 'munchkin', but can't think of any that anyone else calls him.
My H calls the bump 'peanut' but I don't think that'll stick.

E doesn't really have any, mostly princess which is super twee. But she is!
J gets called Mr Moo and responds to this all the time.
