    DH = Dear Husband or darling husband (this one goes waaay back to my babycenter days... just got used to it and use it here sometimes)

    DD = dear daughter, or darling daughter

    DS= " " son

    DW= " " wife

    ok, forgive my humor... but BD is baby dance... don't think we'll see that one here at WS but since the above go back to my BC (baby center days) I couldn't resist.... ;)
