Bicycle is bike-a-cycle
peanut butter sandwiches are "peanut butter round bread" (because he likes his sandwiches to be made with those sandwich rounds)
ritz/town house type crackes are "booty crackers" because ONE time I bought a box that had Woody on them from Toy Story (yes, he's seen toy story enough to knows the characters) and Booty is how he says Woody's name
we say "homey" instead of just home (i.e. we're going homey)
I'm sure there are others that I'm not thinking of right now... but I want to hear yours.
Snuggy jams they are, and we have friends who have adapted the phrase for their families!
mealo- for oatmeal
my family said talakaly for the longest time because that is how my nephew said exactly.
I love the snuggy jams!

DS1 used to pick at his lips until they bled when he was young. I was always putting lip balm on him and saying, "Let me put this on your lips." He started calling them pips and we've been calling them that for over 3 years now. It has even rubbed off onto my sisters and my mother.
nursing = "eat-eat" or "yummy yummy milk"
elevator = "alligator"
pen = "pen-pen" (anyone else's kid say every word twice???? lol)
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
Also, very small things are "tiny spidey." Again, we have no clue where he got it (he's never seen Spiderman, and we don't own any spider books that I can think of). And again-again, he knows LOTS of words for small (small, little, tiny, pequeno, and who knows what else), but just invented this odd phrase that we really like.
In both cases, DH and I use the made-up words in conversations with each other independent of DS1.
summus = hummus
ump tuck = dump truck
ment = cement mixer
bull = bulldozer
Think we have much of a truck obsession going on?
Gusaust (exhaust) as in "Mama that truck has two gusaust pipes"
Blahblahs (Loblaws, a grocery store) as in "They have mini granola bars at Blahblahs"
Scarlett , DH Boris , DS 1/29/08 Julian DD2 6/7/12 missing our DD 1/06/06 Sonja and MC @ 9 wks 11/18/06 Satchel
we've turned it into goggie and it has stuck.
that/this- generally as a question, what is this = "die"
Thank you= "hug dup"
Mommy and daddy= "Mee-ma and Dee-da"
-M-, mama to G 4/09
DH and I laughed today because we both pointed out a "dump dump" (dump truck) to DS while driving. Hummus is "Hummy", but sadly he now actually says hummus. We can't give up hummy though.
Bubble Water=sparkling water
The Red Cart Store= Target (He went through a phase of identifying places by the color of the shopping carts...this one stuck. Now DH will say, "I am going to the Red Cart Store. Do you need anything?" heh)
For some reason, my daughter started saying "can you dip it up?" when referring to chap stick. So that's what we say- I dipped it up for you.
nunnel = tunnel
He has a lot of mispronounciations, but usually it's just dropping off the first syllable of the word, so not too cute.
One's my family still says from my childhood:
nappykin - napkin
backinyard - backyard
is it oyer - is it over
Mama to three
