    These are great! I'm glad I'm not the only one with crazy nicknames for my boys!

    Moe - MoMoe or Baby

    Cody - Codyboy, Bubby (I tried to say baby and buddy at the same time, and it stuck), Bubbs, His Royal Grumpyness, Mr. Grumblebutt, and Grumpypants (he's not really grumpy, but the only noise he makes is a grunt or grumble).

    When they are both in the very back yard playing, they also answer to "Boys" when I call them.
