My angel Madison is simply "moo". It started as missy-moo and now is moo. I hope she doesn't think she's a cow!

My son’s name is “Baby Bear” because I want my child to have fun but also to be safe which is what Mother Bears do.

We call our daughter Beany, since we first saw her in the early scans, she became Beany as she looked like a little coffee bean. Three and a half years old and now the whole family calls her Beany and it sounds very strange when anyone calls her by her real name Delylah!!

Every morning I walk into my baby's room and I say..."Hello my angel, pumpkin, pookie, buttercup, precious darling little boy". Because he is.

Our son has many names Edward was given at birth that there has been many more to follow. The main one I use is Elvis. Ed couldnt walk till he was nearly 3 due to a condition called metatarsus adductus. When he finally did get up on his feet, his kness and pelvis used to sway like Elvis!! He also has the nick names Digger Boy, which at the time our two yr old couldnt say Cheeky boy so it was digger boy. Buddy is his favorite. He knows you love him when you call him that.

My youngest son is called Little Heartbeat (by me) as I will never forget seeing his little heart beating away during my first ultrasound.

My newborn makes the funniest faces when he's pooing. The most common one looks just like Mac from the movie "Mac and me". Adorable!
