The Family Nickname Meme...

I have been tagged by Kimber at '3 Peanuts' to reveal our family nicknames. Which is kind of funny because Kimber is one of my nicknames. You see the children all of the time as they are today, so I thought I would show you all how they looked when they were babies since that is where most of the nicknames began.

This is Zachary who is turning 15 tomorrow. He loved bubbles. His nickname was Juji. Don't ask why, it just was.


This is Katelyn. Her Grandmother called her Kateydid when she was little.

This is Tyler our 11 year old. His nickname was Poody which evolved into Poody Loo. This nickname followed him for many years until he demanded that we stop calling him that. Poor kid.

This is little Eli. His father calls him TJ sometimes for (Tyler Junior) since he's so wild like his brother.

I tag: Search and Destroy Twins, My Three Sons and a Little China Girl, Living the Florida Life, Always Wanted Four, With Six You Get Eggroll, What's Katie Doing Now?, The Monkey King, The Princess Diaries and Sophia + Alyssa.

That's a great post!
My nickname when young was "little bits"...my cousin gave me that name as she couldn't say Elizabeth.
She still addresses me by that when she sends me cards.

Princess Diaries said...

Your children's photos are so sweet.
I love nicknames, it is funny you spend agonizing hours choosing the right names for your children and then you call them something different. I fing nicknames are so indicitive of their little personalities.
I saw I was tagged, thanks, I'm more than happy to share.

Hey Kimberley,

Thanks for tagging me. Unfortunately, we've never gotten into the habit of nicknames in our family (we're name challenged, I guess. We even call all of our stuffed animals by their description: pink puppy, black bear, brown bear, etc.).

Well, except for Katie, I guess, we do call her "Katie Bug" or "The Bug" (which is pretty gross, now that I'm thinking of it!)

Thanks for including me, even though I can't play.

Love the picture of a new Eli. What a hoot!
