Belly Laughs



We asked KC Parent’s 20,000+ Facebook fans: When you were expecting, what did you call your little one before he or she had an official name? And why?

Heather: My first sonogram was very early. She looked like a fuzz ball. So that's what she was until born, our lil’ fuzz ball.

Erin:  Bear, because on the first ultrasound he looked like a little gummy bear. We got so used to calling him that, it ended up being his middle name!

Jamie: I called my little one cookie while he was in my tummy. I had a dream while pregnant about some shoes that were made out of cookies, and that's where the name stemmed from. Plus, I loved all cookies while pregnant. 

Lauren: My husband’s last name is Vitt, so we called the baby Bitty Vitty.

Lori: We called my youngest “Duck” because our older children thought maybe she would come out as a duck instead of a baby.

Melinda: My son was due the middle of June. It started out as "June Bug" but quickly changed to just "Bug." He's 2 1/2 now and is still Bug!

Suzanne:  Something about his first sonogram pictures just looked like a turtle. My girlfriends even threw me a turtle-themed baby shower.

Jessica: When I was asking for name suggestions, my second son wanted to name my third "Pancake." That stuck as his nickname since we never share baby names until after birth.

Heather: My little munchkin and my tiny human. Now my girls are still called munchkin and tiny!

Emily: Animal, because she moved so much I pictured her as Animal from the Muppets, playing the drums wildly.
