The Tale of Squishy and Squirmy

A little story for you on the origin of Squishy’s nickname.

Once upon a time, a Mummy and a Daddy decided to have a baby. They were super excited when they found out that they were pregnant, and gave the little baby a nickname right away. Bob the Blob. As the pregnancy progressed, so did the nicknames. It soon became Cletus the Foetus, and when they heard the heartbeat for the first time, baby was nicknamed Pacman (you know, because the heartbeat sounds like Pacman… wop, wop, wop).

Towards the end of the nine months, the Mummy and the Daddy started looking more closely at the little newborn babies they saw in their day-to-day activities. They decided that they all looked kinda simlar, kinda squishy. From then on, the baby (and all newborn babies for that matter!) was nicknamed Squishy.

Squishy was born, and they loved her so SO much. The nickname lovingly stuck.

After a while, Squishy’s Mummy and Daddy decided that they would like to add another little squishy to their family. They were equally as thrilled to find out that they were pregnant again, but since it was the second pregnancy and they already had a toddler to deal with, the nicknames didn’t immediately come to mind.

It wasn’t until around 15wks when the Mummy AND the Daddy felt the baby doing backflips or something in there for the first time, that they knew exactly what this baby’s nickname should be. Squirmy.

(and just in case you’re wondering, or you didn’t quite get my not-so-subtle hinting, yes that is an announcement)

    Might I also add, again, my congratulations on your impending Squirmy – can’t wait to meet him/her in a few months :)

    Haha, love the origin of the names – and such cute names, too! Our #1 was called Fred until he was born, and our #2 was called Model B. My cousin’s #2 was called Percy the Parasite!
