Nicknames are kind of a thing in my family. Everybody has a nickname, and it’s the only name you go by unless you’re being introduced or things have gotten really serious. My grandfather, in particular, has given every one of his grandchildren a nickname, and it goes through a multitude of versions as time goes on. It occurred to me this morning that I’ve carried on this tradition.
So, in honor of my son’s second birthday, I am sharing all of the nicknames that Jeremy Corbin Lane has taken on during his first two years of life.
Bea Butter (read Bee-uh Butter, given by his sister who had trouble saying “baby brother”)
Bea Bub Bub
Bea Beep Beep
Sonny Bea Bub
Sonny Bea Bub Bub
Corbinini (Italian flair)
Corbinita (when his sisters make him wear girly stuff)
JC Lane (when he’s in trouble)
I count 14 nicknames. If the math holds true, he should have roughly 70 nicknames by the time he’s 10.
Happy Birthday, Son. Daddy loves you.
