My favorites were:

Wack-a-mole for guacamole

And hamster or monster for lobster

My son used to say ah-go-pa-gi for pumpkin. He was really easy to understand and great at communicating, but for whatever reason that's what pumpkin was. My sister and I still call them that because it was so funny.

To-food is my all-time favorite. I also really miss doorknobber.

My girl just started saying her name yesterday... that's currently my favorite :)

Happy-klopter for helicopter is our hands down favourite wink1.gif

I like "bummoon" for balloon and "dramma" for grandma. 

ColoradoMama626 07-15-2013 10:18 PM

My daughter said " I'm dropping wet" instead of sopping wet

askins 07-16-2013 01:48 PM

We had "up-and-down" for a bus.  Because "The people on the bus go up and down!"

Delicilous for delicious and tacky-toes for taquitos.

mamazee 07-16-2013 03:30 PM

Ha! These are so cute and fun!

I love "dramma" for grandma!

sassyfirechick 07-16-2013 07:45 PM

she used to say "dah-beet" for peanut butter and "nanu" for love you...and she calls herself "kanin" for kaelyn ;-)

kaypea 07-16-2013 08:13 PM

My daughter - restronaut for restaurant
My son - cake you! For thank you.

lula'smom 07-16-2013 09:01 PM

Current faves include: belly buppon for belly button; scunsceen for sunscreen. used to say din down for playground and bockedy for broccoli. and of course, the all time most important NUNK for mommy's milk.

silverlining 07-16-2013 09:59 PM

It will be a sad day when our daughter no long says, "mupples." It's her word for "nipples."

Gracecody 07-16-2013 10:16 PM

Loved reading this thread. My little one says 'bocky' for broccoli, 'amidals' for animals and 'akshy' for actually, my favorite. He used to say ''baba' for mama and that morphed into 'babuck' when he learned duck and truck. He still (at 21 mos) calls me babuck on occasion and I looooove it. smile.gif I always get sad when he starts pronouncing something the right way!

misty weaver 07-16-2013 11:05 PM

He has a word he created, Hump-bash. That is where the whiskers grow out on the pets and Daddy's face.

skycheattraffic 07-17-2013 12:04 AM

Lol adorable stuff!! I forgot to add "sunscream", another crowd pleaser wink1.gif

gloobella 07-17-2013 06:34 AM

oyt-meal  for oatmeal.  It was adorable especially said in that sweet little voice.

JamieCatheryn 07-17-2013 07:33 AM

My 7 year old still says oyt-meal too! My middle one said lala for every liquid. My first said oosh for shoes.

LilyKay 07-17-2013 08:43 AM

she used to say shnonape for "tomate" (tomato in German). I miss that!

Lately she's been asking for roller-cakes, which took us a while to figure out. She meant a scooter, but confused that with roller skates...

daidai 07-17-2013 10:22 AM

My oldest used to say "bathing sutter" and "gouash" (for squash), which took us a long time to figure out ; )
Both her and my youngest one (3 months) say "eo eo eo" to fall asleep. Love that!!

luckiest 07-17-2013 12:56 PM

Pain mayonnaise = praying mantis

tippy train = trampoline

baby soup = bathing suit


And he sometimes calls me mom-mom, which I love.

california_mom 07-17-2013 01:29 PM

"Wugga-bugga" for woodpecker. Ahh, those were the days... om.gif


And my friend's daughter says "pooter" for computer. "Mama, need pooter?" Too cute!

erigeron 07-17-2013 03:42 PM

Mine said "nooh" for nurse for quite some time, then she figured out how to say "nurse" but I thought the other version was so cute! And she still hasn't figured out the second D in Daddy, so it's Daa-ey. But we were playing with a little boy named Noah and she tried to put too many consonants in his name and called him Nona. 

baltmom 07-18-2013 12:31 PM

My son used to say "ambunips" for ambulance and "ormanips" for ornaments - I miss them!

kellybeth 07-18-2013 12:48 PM

this isn't my toddler, but i nannied a girl who said "tell it a bad dooey!"

when she hurt herself, she'd point at whatever it was she tripped/fell over/ran into and say this. cracked me up!

Montse 07-18-2013 01:06 PM

My all time favorite was, "Mama doonin'?" when she would ask me what I was doing.  She would also ask me, "Ellie doonin'?" when she wanted me to explain what she was doing! hahaha! 

willfulmama 07-18-2013 01:12 PM

My son says "wes" for "yes" (love it!) and "boofs" when he wants to nurse.

Katie8681 07-18-2013 02:43 PM

Dee-doo! (Thank you)... My all time favorite thus far.
