oboder - it is a animal - the first letter is missing and the "od" is a substitute sound
soop - soup does sound like this, but it is another food that begins with s, ends in p, but no o's
cock - yes, clock
daze - a food...not sure about clues on this though

Daze is a food? Do you guys have corn tortillas "maize"?

Darn, my other guess for soop was going to be soap. Shrimp?

Tarley is a boy (with a pretty common English name).

Mon is more 'mon and is a request to "Tarley"

Yes! Shrimp!

It is a little hard - raisin...He can't get the "r" so it comes out "d", and he just leaves off the last syllable - "daze" or "dais"

oboder is lobster

If he didn't have part of it right, I'd say that "beeper" was phone (cause they beep, y'know)

creeper....deeper....feeder...reader

being...begin

bopper....



Paper? I tried pretending I was dd saying "beeper" really insistently and it sounded like trying to say "paper" and that's used several times a day around here.

unch - The U is pronounced like a German u with an umlat over it.

DS's pronunciation has really improved... this game isn't as fun as it used to be .

Me+DH+DS1+DS2+Dog=me and a house full of guys, which is really just peachy, thanks.

It doesn't *exactly* rhyme with "beeper"...it also does not start with "b"

And I said he had it part-right. And we use many of *this reusable item* every day. He gets plenty of practice with this word.

closer, but nope.

(he *has* been yelling "potty potty" when he sees us go lately. He just likes to get up there and sit--no production. Likes to flush and wave too )'

I *would* do some nakey time but he LOVES being outside and that is SO NOT HAPPENING where we currently live. (apt. complex, no privacy *at all* and i don't trust anyone to either not be a sicko or a person who would report that kind of thing to CPS)

I should take a video of DD saying these words b/c she sounds so cute. She says her own name, "LAY-dia" lol. And she found a hand-me-down bag that I hadn't gone through yet and pulled out a hanger and said, "Look at these beautiful cal-OHS (clothes)." And boogers are "ga-ROSS."

Two clues:

She's improved her pronunciation a little and now says it "bedha".

She usually says it while reaching for one that we keep by the door, on the way out of the house.

I have no idea how a German U sounds, so I can't guess at all. Unless maybe it's "itch" lol.

What drove me particularly insane about this word was that the first time she said it, we were in the car, in a station wagon, with her sitting next to me in the back seat in a rear-facing carseat. There was an umbrella in the back that she could see that I could not, and it wasn't until she'd been telling me about the "beha" over and over for several minutes that I finally turned around and realized what she was talking about.

I've been following this thread, but I haven't contributed anything before now because I am absolutely useless at translating toddlerspeak and my dd has always pronounced things pretty clearly...

But I finally have a word!

Oh I also want to say that my item "beeper" is reusable in MY house but not necessarily EVERYONE's house.

So...it's something we use EVERY DAY, he's got LOTS of opportunities to use this word, and it's an item that is reusable for US but not necessarily EVERYONE.
