Why a nickname? I don't know. I believe my desire to create nicknames came from my dad. I'm just following the family tradition. Our oldest daughter, was simply "Baby." And then when the younger daughter was born, she called "Baby" "Doo." Don't ask what comes out of the words of babes. But the younger one, well she (running from the room as I write this) received "Skibby." My husband would tickle her belly with goofy words, and one was skib or something along those lines. I said, "Skibby!" And the rest is history.
