It's funny how as parents, aunts and uncles, spouses, and friends we can find funny nicknames for our children and each other.
When I was expecting our baby, and it was before we learned he was a boy. We called the baby peanut. I would lovingly refer to him as our little peanut. The peanut would kick, roll and give me acid reflux. After our son was born, had grew and started toddling around our house. My husband started calling him the Booper, complete with sound effects. I don't know if it's because my husband is a musician, but everything seems to get his added sound effects around our house!The Booper nickname started when our son was first learning to walk. My husband would see our son toddling and make the sounds boop, boop, boop, with every step our little guy would make. Thus he became our little Booper, or at times simply The Boop. We love our little man. I'm making a special place here on my blog to record funny or special moments with the Booper. You are welcome to read these or not, but I just want to have them recorded. ~ Beck

The other night my husband, our son, and I were all on our bed having a pillow fight. We were taking a little break trying to distract the Booper, so we could stop pillow fighting. I decided to see if I could distract him by singing the Bob the Builder song. I don't really know all the words so I would just sing," Bob the builder, Bob the builder. Can we fix it, Yes we can!" The Booper got really excited and I could see him mouthing the words along with me. He has never sang actual words before, he would sing things like "laaa la laa" but never words. I just asked him if he wanted to sing it. To our amazement he said, "Yes!" and started singing (in his exact words), "Bob de builder, Bob de builder, Fix it? Yes we can!" My husband's and my mouth both dropped open. We are so proud of our little guy...a singer! :-D
