A background on the nickname "Foofs", Jake's Nickname "Bird"

I guess I should tell you how that nickname came about, because I'll probably be calling her foofs (and Jake "Bird") thru the year. We used to sing the song "Little Bunny Foo Foo" to Olivia. Then we thought it'd be more funny if we sang "Little Livvy Foo Foo" and the nickname spiraled from there and was shortened to Foofs.
Now, I used to call Jake, Jaybird when he was little. My sister calls her daughter Julia "bird" and I always thought it was so cute. Well, Jake's nickname, much like Olivia's, became shortened to just "Bird" I call him Bird so often, I don't even think about it. I can already see it now, Jake's name in lights, Jake "The Bird" Bulloss. Oy...Maybe not...
