Pet names for our adult children?

I still call my 21-year-old son by the pet name his mom and I gave him when he was an infant. He doesn’t seem to mind, as long as it’s only among family.

I’m sure other parents do this to their adult children, but why do we do it? Are we nostalgic for when they were little?
