We really run the gamut of nicknames for little Ezra. We have several for Levi, too, but when Levi came into our family, "Weebie" stuck within his first few weeks of life. And he's been our little Weebie (Weebs, Weebers, Weebie Bears etc.) ever since. Ezra doesn't have that one specific name that we call him, so something new is always coming out of our mouths!
Ezra is our ...
Easy Deezy (That's what his daddy calls him most of the time!)
Boo Boo Bear
Boo Boo Angel
These names probably baffle you on how to pronounce them. Babies make complete morons out of the way you speak. They make this college graduate sound like I couldn't pass Kindergarten. Like ... for real.
Case in point: The other day I asked Ezra if he was ready for his food, and Levi said, "don't you mean his foo-foo's?" My "baby speak" has got to stop. But it's oh so hard for me.
Anyway. On with the story!
I'm always calling him "boo boo", and the other day as Husby and I were putting the boys in the car, I was talking to Ezra and making him laugh and giggle and we were all having a grand ole time until I called him ..... "boobs".
Husby, buckling in Levi, just stopped and stared at me.
I didn't EVEN realize what I had said, because I am always shortening their nicknames - (Weebie is "Weebs" the majority of the time!). I honestly thought NOTHING of it - my mind didn't even think "that" until I saw the reaction from my husband.
He instructed me to please never call our son "boobs" again.
I could not stop laughing.
Bless my little Toogie Woog's heart!!!!
I'm sorry, Littlest. I will never call you such a name again.
And if somehow this lands you in counseling when you are older, I will take full blame and responsibility.
What are some nicknames for your kiddos? Anyone ever had a nickname gone wrong?
