Going back to read all of them, but wanted to post before I forgot (or "got-for" as DS used to say!)

My current favorite is "blow-cano" for volcano (because it is a "mountain that blows lava" according to ds)

ETA:

"underbrella" - the device you get UNDER on rainy days!

"Hey, mama!" to the fried dough lovin', monkey-boy.joy.gifI'm back and ready to chat!

My youngest makes up adjectives.

"I feel computer-y" "I feel car-y" "I feel book-y"

He uses them when he wants something but doesn't want to seem demanding.

ds's enunciation is improving greatly, but I am going to miss hearing his ask me to "Ream (read) book", play on the "foo foo" (computer) and draw with "Karl Marx" (colouring markers).

"to-de-ger" instead of "together'. love it. ds pronounces everything, even hard words so well that I hate for him to correct this one!

@ Karl Marx.

I don't think I'd let my kid colour with a dead communist.

Love this thread! Makes me realize how fast they are growing up!

When he was very, very little, like just learning to talk, my son called food, "doof", which we thought was hysterical. We still say that sometimes.

"Han-ga-burger" for hamburger

"Even you know..."

"More likely..." when he is correcting you on something!

And my oldest used to always say, "Actually..." from the time he was barely 2. It was so cute!

DS now calls the kitchen sink sprayer the "water worm."

He has also taken to saying, "I don't want to sit in your lap. I want to sit in MY OWN lap."

Oh, and he calls watering the garden "Waldo Woo-ing," which is from a page in Dr. Seuss's ABCs...somebody is washing Warren Wiggins while he washes Waldo Woo, and they are sprinkling each other with water.

"I'm Waldo Wooing!"

crackers or cereal are "gucka" here. I love it. She signs cracker as she says it. DH asked her if she wanted guckas the other day when his friend was here. Our friend was confused! What, you don't have gucka's at your house?

My DD has a new one: Sunscream.

While that isn't "better" for most of us, it makes way more sense to her! At the mere thought of me putting sunscreen on her, she runs away screaming! hahahahaa....

Bidet = spaghetti (he morphed from bidet to da-bidet to spabidet to spagigeggi...)
Baby soup = bathing suit
Al Gore = all gone

There are tons more and now I can't think of them.

Oh, and hippopotamus was pronounced "Happamoose." I hate that he's starting to get it right....

Lol these are hilarious. I can't think of any original ones ds says right now. Aside from teh usual "titty" for kitty.
But one day I was lifeguarding and a kid asked another lifeguard for "plip plops." We were very confused, thinking maybe flip flops... But then he pointed to flippers, and we were said "Oh flippers!!" He was like "Yeahh!! Plippers!!"

My 2.5 y.o. DS rubbed my stubbly leg the other day and said "sparkly"! When I handed him a sippy of milk from the fridge that apparently had been left out for awhile and had turned, he took a drink, handed it back and said the milk was "spicy". I love that he's coming up with these adjectives entirely on his own.
