Nicknames: You decide.

Max and his dad, pre-walk.We have a tonne of nicknames for Max. And by a tonne, I mean...like...12. We're not sure which one we like best, so we thought we'd put it out to the internet for a vote. So here they are in no particular order:

Porkchop
Maxy Paxy
Maxy Poopoo
Lil' Barracuda
Button
Kitten
Jubjub
Little dude/Little man
Lumpkin
Awesome Possum
Gruntbuggly
Baby Poogie
edited to add: Sweet Baboo

I usually switch up the nickname based on his current mood or what he is up to. I won't tell you which one is my favourite until we count the votes. Okay...go!All that walking wore the little boy out!

    I think voters should know that it is actually "Little Maxy Poopoo," and is sung to the music for "Little Rabbitt Foo Foo, running through the forest."

    A little context never hurts. An informed voter is always a better voter.

    If "Maxy Poopoo" wins, I am invoking my parental veto and awarding the title of "official nickname" to the runner-up.

    Oh, and I vote for Gruntbuggly. Bonus points to anyone who can tell us (without using Google) where I got that name from.

  11. Little Man is the best... 'cause that's what he is.

    PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE tell me y'all don't talk to him in 'babytalk'? UGH!! That's why kids these days slur their damn speech... their parents never spoke to them as human beings!

  18. I'm gonna toss in a vote for Gruntbuggly, because how could you not?

  19. Button for sure. If you don't use it, I'm going to use it for Chris if you don't.

  20. the only gruntbuggly I know of is the Vogon kind ... wow I'm actually working my way through that book at the moment!

    still ... my vote is for Lumpkin - it just sounds like a baby nickname to me - and also kinda "Fraggle-ish" which can never be a bad thing.

  21. I really like Awesome Possum myself ... they're all pretty cute though!

  22. Lol. So far Lumpkin is winning with 6 votes. Porkchop is runnerup with 4 votes...

    Soli - of course we do babytalk with Max. Just wait until you have your own kids, you won't believe the stuff you end up doing...
