My 2.5yo says "bint-bint" for "elephant".  And "stah belluh-belluh" for "strawberry".

 

My 3.5yo calls Five Guys "Fries Guys" and invented the phrase "hand-mouth" for tongs (you know, because you hold them in your hand and they open and close like a mouth).

 

Neither of them can say "molasses"-- the older one says "mah-gass-es" and the younger says "lull-ass-uh".

My 3 and a half year old recently told me that when her little brother grows up he wants to be a "destruction worker". How apt. When she was a toddler, my favorite was "ringy" (raisin).

 

My 22 month old's current bests are "stah-bee" (strawberry) and "rey-ya" (mozzarella).

DS just turned 3 and says puh-kooter for computer and croco-tiger for crocodile. He loves playing "the crocotiger game" on my iPad, aka Where's My Water, if you know it.

Ds do you want a drink? Wes, nods his head.

My older daughter could NOT get "shoulder" right. She said shurtle, which rhymes with turtle. She could say "colder" right but not shoulder.

My younger daughter made up words: burgaly (your hair is all burgaly) and squaggily (sort of like burgaly but more squishy than tangly). She also said "doo doo" for thank you and called her sister "Caca," so "thank youKira" came out "doodoo Caca."

My daughter has been saying a word that we couldn't figure out what it meant. We've been saying it back to her not knowing what she's saying, turns out "a-wak-a" means walk.

My brother who is 10 years younger than I used to say "addin" for yes. That was quite the source of amusement for family and friends back then.

my 18 month old has been saying 'mac mo mo' for a while now and we just figured it out the other day when he said it while emphatically pointing at a motorcycle!

This thread is so cute!!

 

My 3-year-old calls himself a "toggler" instead of a toddler, and asks for "gummins" instead of vitamins. He asks to watch car crashing instead of the Cars movie. My 5-1/2 year old used to call music... mucus. Both kids at around the same age called pasta... see-sa. We have a hamster named Daphne. My son calls her Daphme. I weaned DS at around 25 months. When he wanted to nurse, he used to come up to me and ask for "amyoo". I have no idea how to spell what he would say. When he wants to be picked up he says, "awa". I have no idea where he got either of those from!!! I'm sure there is more and when I think of it, I'll add.

 

I love toddler-speak!!!

I'm seeing quite a few familiar ones here--we also have "Dramma" (now gamma), dah-ey for daddy (she just recently started pronouncing the middle consonant) and dee doo for thank you. Except now for "thank you" she says "tank you a welcome!"

 

I love that she's almost 2.5 and has hung on to "force" for horse--I have no idea why, as she pronounces the "h" just fine with other words.

 

Our latest favorite is "pocsiple" instead of "popsicle" and "tase-a-diya" for quesadilla. And "amole" for "guacamole." (and "Chipotwe" for Chipotle--you can tell we haven't had much time for home cooking lately...)

Also, she mixes up her pronouns, as in "Her going to the store? You putting she to bed?"

These are all so great! DS thought moths were called waffles, for whatever reason. Then he graduated to calling them "moffles". Still my favorite!

Aww, these are so cute!

My DD1 used to have a lot of these. She said "amnids" for watermelon, and we eventually figured put that she'd gotten the names of watermelon and lemonade confused smile.gif
She also said "pol-nailish" for nail polish and "eye flashes" instead of eyelashes.

DS has just a few- "chop skit" for Chapstick. "Mimi" for nursing and "mimis" for breasts. smile.gif

Rophie for Sophie, the next door neighbor's dog! Die for our dog Sky! Ma for mama milk. Asta for hasta la vista. Dadoo for tattoo, which may be a short cut for Dada's tattoos. 

Her sign language is really cute too, she made up her own sign which is a combo of more and please, she signs more on her chest. Its a short cut!
