My DD says Bucky for button. She likes to put her finger in my beyey bucky.

Choo choo is not a train at our house, but tractor. And just a choo is a truck.

My brother who is now 11, used to say peanut jelly and sandwhich.

He also called a grill a gorilla.

My favorites so far:

Hopter-hopter (helicopter)
Play-doh-doh (Play-doh)
Yoweeyo (Yellow)

And in the book Put Me in the Zoo, DD thinks that the animal with the spots is a zoo.

I love that with my kids, something is either upside-down, or "upside-up," which makes a lot more sense to me!

DS is 5 now but these are ones he used to say when he was little.

Bru-rella (umbrella)
Lemonlade (lemonade)
Indian Joe (indiana jones)
opperscotch (hopscotch)

And my ds once explained to my that a fart makes a pffffft sound and a toot makes more of a squeaky sound. Glad to know the difference!

From 16 month old DD:

Showees=flowers

Buddies=bubbles :

And--I'm not so sure this is cute--she just learned how to say "shirt." Except she pronounces it without the "r" This was rather embarassing when we went to the Christian thrift store the other day and she was enthusiastically pointing out the long racks of shirts they had

DS (now 21) used to say cloclate for chocolate and the cresent moon was banana moon. DD1 (now 5) used to say hehind instead of behind for her bottom. She used to say this until recently when someone at school told her she's supposed to say bottom (I was sad). She still says underpits for armpits or underarms. DD2 (21 months) called Dora Dida.

My little one used to call her brother Luke "kook" or "kooky" it was such a good description of his behavior too. It was a sad day for me when my train obsessed son learned how to pronounce the word and no longer said "twains" in his sleep even.

This reminded me thay my oldest DD used to say "chootles" for trains. We still use that term... a lot, actually, since we live about 1/4 mile from a BNSF freight spur (I'm the railfan in the family, and have passed it along to my kids).

My 16month old can say 'nana and ap-pool for banana and apple. However she calls all fruit "apple". She sees a banana and says APPLE! I say "do you want a banana?" she says Nooooooo, APPLE! While nodding her head 'yes' furiously.

It's so freaking adorable!

These are so funny!

Just now as we were walking in the door, my DS said something and I chuckled and thought, "Actually, that would be a better name for that" and headed straight for this thread, but I forgot what it was while reading the other posts!

So I'll just tell an old one that I think is cute: instead of "each other," my 4yo DS says "our chothers" (as in "We're holding hands with our chothers") or "their chothers" (as in "They're sitting next to their chothers").

ETA: I just remembered what DS said a few minutes ago! (Wow, my brain really does work, sort of! He was talking about marbles and he called them marballs. Well, they are balls, so it actually works!

Mine says mooster for rooster.

And my first invented sparkle for freckle. I much prefer calling any kind of skin blemish sparkles. Our whole family says sparkles now for freckles, moles, acne, even scratches.

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!

My nearly 2 year old puts too many 'a' sounds in the sentence when she wants someone to wake up. So she'll go to her big brothers room in the morning and say to him, "Awake-a Up-a" it's hard to describe, but it sounds so freaking cute.

Sometimes I need my 5 year old to translate for me, he can understand her garble better than we can. Last night I had to call him over she was saying to me "mama, I need Blah blah." I could tell it started with a 'b" sound but each thing I asked that I could think of that started with a 'b' she would say no to and say again "I need blah blah." So I call her brother, and tell him I can't figure out what his sister wants, and I tell her to tell him. She says to him, "I need blah blah" He rolls his eyes and tells her, "No, you don't need one, you just want one." and he walked away! Without telling me what it was she wanted. : I had to chase him down and get him to tell me. He sighed and told me, "she just wants a band-aid."

Okay, I have to jump in here!

Do-Do-Roo=Scooby doo

(DH is teaching him spanish) pour favor comes out sounding like "ho ho ho"

And, at 23 months, DS has yet to string 2 words together to make a thought, with the exception of "boobies. milk. baby" every time his newborn sister is nursing! And, of course, these are the only words he says clearly enough so that anyone can actually understand!

My youngest is almost 4, so not a toddler. He does have a speech delay, though. I just realized that he's calling the microwave the "hot machine" and fridge the "cold machine."
