5th Friday Rainbow Baby Blog Rodeo - Join The Fun

Has your Rainbow hit a milestone this week?
Starred in a cute video?
Done something adorable? Funny? Downright embarrassing?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, 
than you have come to the right place!

Welcome to the Friday Rainbow Baby Blog Rodeo, a place to celebrate the amazing children who have come into our lives after loss, and to strengthen our bond as a community of Rainbow parents.

Every Friday we can gather here to share our little ones' triumphs, brag like the proud parents that we are, and yes ... even own up to our epic fails in parenting (all in good fun of course) via links to our own blogs with posts about any and everything Rainbow from the week.

Feel free to grab the button from the sidebar and help spread the word. Let's bring this Rainbow parenting community together.

I will go first...

New Nicknames

I've been giving this a lot of thought, and for many reasons (not the least of which is just that it is boring always referring to the babies as H & K) I have decided that from now on I will refer to my little snowflakes on this blog by the nicknames Bubba and Squeaks.

Bubba has had his nickname since birth. To be honest, I am not sure that he knows he has any other name. To me, the boy just looks like a Bubba. 

Barrel chested.
Big hands and feet.

I sort of imagine that he is going to grow up to look like this guy...

Squeaks, on the other hand, just recently earned this nickname, as she has been working really hard to find her voice. Whether four in the morning, or four in the afternoon, Squeaks...well...squeaks! 

Just watch the video and see for yourself. 
(Please excuse my voice on the video. Yuck! Am I the only one that hates to hear her own voice on video?)

Notice that I have to hide the camera to catch any of this squeaking action, because as soon as I am spotted, Squeaks stops. 

Silly girl!

That is what Bubba and Squeaks
have been up to this week...

So, tell me, what have your rainbows been doing?

Wanna know how you can participate?

It's easy!

Just write a post on your own blog about what your Rainbow(s) has been up to this week, and then add the link to that post in the Linky widget below. 

Thanks for riding along on the rodeo!


  1. Cute little names for them! I love seeing how they progress :)

  2. I think the nicknames are perfect! I love little baby squeaks. My rainbow is the same way...once he sees the camera, he quits whatever cute baby thing he was doing.

  3. Bubba and Squeaks, hilarious. Years from now they will read this blog and you can all laugh together.

  4. Love the names and no you are not the only one who hates listening to her own voice on video, lol.

  5. I hate my voice too. That was the cutest thing I've seen on video today!!

  6. I just showed the video to my LO and all she could do was smile along with me. Love the new names. They are just too cute.

  7. I hate hearing my voice too, cute nicknames for the snowflakes. I called Brandon, Gooch and Zachery little Goose for nicknames lol.

  8. Just checking in to see how your beautiful babies are doing. They are adorable and I love the names. I just know that you are enjoying every single second with these precious gifts you have received. Take care. Love and Peace Leah's Nana

  9. I'm late but I couldn't copy to it.
