I used to call Creighton "Maynard" when she was a baby. I don't know why. For fun, let's blame it on my severe postpartum. Everyone, especially my mother, HATED it! But, not unlike myself as child OR MY DAUGHTER NOW , that seemed to fuel the name on more and more. It just rolled off my tongue.

Occasionally I still call her that, but not often. Now, I call her RaeRae, lovie, or Peanut. I don't know where any of those names came from either, but I REALLY like nicknames (precisely because I never had one, except to my uncle and cousin, which I hated the name, but loved the attention of having a special name :)--I know I am weird).

Well anyway, whenever I call Creighton "Peanut" lately she gets a big smile on her face and says: "I yous Peanut, Bubba yous Jwelly" It is pretty much awesome! I love it.

Maynard was a pet name in our household when we were going up--along with George, nappy, Susie, bum, etc, etc...can you tell I grew up with brothers?

We used to call Elizabeth "Steve" because she would never tell anyone her for a while, we had three girls named Rhian, Steve, and Jack...subconsciously, I think David still wants a boy!

We also have friends who call their daughter, Kamryn, "George," all the when we are all together we have four girls with boy names!

Cute! I have to be thinking of you a good nickname.

$200??? I send out about 60 each year, and I've never spent over $40! I'll help ya out next year with doing it on a budget, if you want. =) I'm switching to Easter this year for cards. I hope I remember to do them though.
