One of my hesitations about choosing the name Lucas was that it wasn’t easy to have a nickname by adding an “e” sound. We called our older boys Benny and Sammy, at least when they were young. Since Luke has arrived, I have learned that I can and do call him Lukie (especially Lukie Pookie). Of course, I should have worried, as our kids always end up with tons of nicknames. Ben and Sam primarily call him “Baby,” while Jason and I call him…Squishy Face.
