I am a fan of nicknames. I find it endearing and special when someone refers to someone by one. That is why I want to have a special nickname for the little peanut growing inside my belly. But that’s where I got stuck?? What could I call such a special little miracle? I am pretty positive EVERYTHING has already been used, but does it really matter? Shouldn’t I not care what other people do? I mean I have to use a name that is special to me. That’s why from here on out, on this blog, our little miracle shall be called Pooh Bear!
Who doesn’t love Pooh Bear? That bear is snugly, cuddly all stuffed with fluff! The first stuffed animal that was put in my crib when I was born was a stuffed Pooh Bear. I have that bear today, and I still sleep with the Pooh Blanket that was in my bed (don’t judge! It has the softest silky edges!) Don’t you think it’s appropriate? Not to mention that Pooh Bear has a nice pot belly which I believe will be similar to what I will be sporting in the coming months.
Pooh Bear, I think, can also act as a nickname for either a boy or a girl. Yes Winnie the Pooh is a boy, but I say the name can be unisex. Pooh Bear is everything little kids should be. Warm, fun, innocent, loving, and cuddly. So I will set this kid ahead of the pack by nicknaming her or him after a cute fictional character with all of those traits.
Being the kid at heart that I am, I am excited to share with you all the future adventures Pooh Bear and I will have. I think the name will be a perfect fit! What’s even better? The Captain likes it too! So hopefully it will stick beyond the blog! Wouldn’t that be fun?
What did you call your little one before he/she was born?
That’s sweet. I’m glad you found one that is perfect! I love them, too. J calls me Sweetheart and it melts my heart every time. Even though it’s a very generic term, you don’t hear too many husbands say it and it makes me feel so special every time he says it. So I, too, really wanted a nickname for this baby. I hadn’t put much thought into it, but Pokey just came to us after the little stinker took his/her sweet time getting a heartbeat. So we call it Poke, little Poke, B-Dub (for Baby W), the bambino, all sorts of names. But mostly my little Pokey baby.
I’m glad you found one! Such a special time!!
Ya i thnk it nicknames are very endearing. LIke they were meant just for you. I’m glad you and your DH have that! I think Pokey is perfect!!
Aww, I love the name Pooh Bear! The original Pooh books were my favorite when I was a kid, my Dad used to read them to me… 🙂
I am a HUGE fan of pooh bear! I love the pooh bear quote books…just adorable!
Pooh Bear sounds very sweet!
We called our first baby (the one we lost) “Green Bean”. Nellie’s in-utero moniker was “Gummi Bear”, because that’s what she looked like on her first U/S picture.. A little bitty Gummi Bear!
awww gummi bear is cute! Love it!
Liam was little bit.. until his 20 week ultrasound when he got his name…
This ‘bean’ is being named by daddy and was nicknamed Ach baby …
Dragonfly. After a charm I bought the cycle before our bfp. I love the symbolism of what the dragonfly stands for (and dragonflies in general) and the whole bfp cycle I was calling my egg Dragonfly and when the postive test came around it just stuck.
I love the symbolism behind it (although I don’t know what it is I can only imagine!)
We’re calling ours Boo. I know it’s one that’s used a lot….but it fits perfectly, since our due date is Halloween.
Boo is cute! Especially since it’s around halloween. I like it even if it wasn’t!
I call mine “chocolate butterbean’. LOL!
Chocolate butterbean? Where did that one come from? Very original!
I love it!
Stopping by from SITS. Pooh Bear is cute, and I agree, it’s unisex. We called my first peanut, my second bean, and my third pea. Bean stuck, not the rest. She’s still bean at 2 to everyone.
So cute! I think it is just perfect!
We are a house of nicknames here too! Olivia’s name while I was pregnant with her was “seed”. Even Mike’s mom would call her that lol. Now, I think she has at least 20!! I write them all in her baby book 🙂 Enjoy that little snuggly Pooh Bear!!! So cute….
Oh what a sweet nickname! We have always seemed to end up with nicknames after they were born.. most recently, my daughter Lily quickly earned the nickname Lily Bunny. We’re still not entirely sure why, but it works!
i have triplets, so when i was pregnant with them, they were the parasites. i know, really sweet, right? 🙂 but once they were born they became my bunnies. 🙂
I love that you call your baby Pooh Bear. I have to agree with Honey B. that the original Pooh Bear was my all-time fav! I tried so hard to get my kids to like it but they just didn’t. I was one. bummed. momma. lol! I was just stopping by from the SITSta-hood to say congrats on being today’s FB! Holla!
Aww, Pooh Bear is really cute!! Found from the SITSgirls site.
Who doesn’t love Winnie the Pooh? Such a sweet nickname!
Happy SITS Feature Day!
I am 44 years old and nickname has been Pooh Bear
