Deep Thoughts by John Chadwick >

[Comments] (5) Nicknames: Today Susie went to breakfast with a friend, at my request, so I could bond with my angel. I fed her freshly-pumped milk and took her to the Back Bay by Uncle Justin's house for a nice walk in the baby bjorn. It was hotter than I expected, but we walked for almost an hour.

Towards the end she woke up and I addressed her as Maggie, which was a bit wierd to me. I have way too many nicknames for her, including Sugar Beet, Beautiful, Honey, Daughter, Baby Girl, Cuddlemuffin, Pumpkinbutt, Snagglepuss, Bugaboo, Precious, Little One, Daddy's Girl, etc. But it felt good to call her Maggie. Note to self: use her name more often, but still keep the nickames.

I am sad to hear of Jellybean's passing. It reminds me of my puppie's passing over three years ago. I am comforted that Tonks is back, at least. Pets die much more frequently than humans, which is one of the major drawbacks to pets. Dealing with death is never fun, especially when you have to make a decision to end a life. I wonder what the Catholic stance is on ending animal life? Maybe I'll look it up.

Magpie! I thought of that one this morning.

Dr Reno said that animals don't need to linger like humans do. When they are suffering they would just rather die. I guess they don't need to say goodbye, and it's selfish to keep them for human needs... poor little bean, I miss her!

Dr Reno? I thought she was supposed to see Dr. Pivko?

I miss her too.

Oldly enough, Aaron calls me pumpkinbutt, and poopy or poops for short, which I used to get so annoyed at but now I don't mind...sounds kinda cutie now (poopy). You should try it. I liked how Susie had in her blog Maggie Sue, that's cute.

Susie's nicknames include Squisy & Sweet Baboo. She used to detest these names, but they have grown on her with time.
