Adah says "in the, on the" before everything, just to make sure she has all her bases covered! As in "mommy, in da, on da bed!"

"adah in da on da park!"

my dd is 3.5 and instead of saying i already did it, she says i only did it.

i guess i really should start correcting her but it is so damn cute!

And she sings a nursery ryhme (can't recall which one) but calls someone a Ho in it.

lalafalls - waterfalls

He also does the "my" instead of "I" or "me" - so we get a lot of "my two years old" - "my loves Red Lobsters" - "mys cars"

Surely there are more, but that's what I can come up with off the top of my head.

Anything that looks like a mammal is "GOOD dah" (like good dog)

She calls nursing "sides"

Today, she declared her shoelace a "noonul" (noodle)

For hot, she says "BAAAH!"

Instead of poop or pee, she says "foo foo"

tomato=nomayno

cracker=ah ah

M. says 'foof' instead of 'fart' or other unsavory words.. I got her started with it and now she proudly proclaims "I foofed!"and at least the other around don't know what she meant!

My toddler is 28 months and my favorites are:

That be wundapul = That would be wonderful
Yike = like
Tiny be lapping Mama - when he makes baby sister laugh
bar bar = granola bar
Ting teeze = string cheese
Take a Boot it = shake your booty (complete with little butt shaking dance)
Yub you = Love you
No, not want take tower = No I don't want to take a shower.
Twitch = Switch
It not wuking = The reason to "twitch" when baby sister has emptied a "nurtie" before he got to it.

And this isn't a big mispronunciation, but it kills me every time and I know it won't last forever - Mommy! You my bet fwend. = Mommy! You're my best friend.

Aww, that is so sweet! DD just had an argument with my MIL (Who the grandkids call Nonnie) in which she said, "Nonnie, you my fend?" MIL said "I'm your Nonnie." DD said "Can we no be fends, too?" Too cute. She sometimes will say "Mommy, you my fend, you always hepping myself." (helping me) she is also really into the word myself right now and uses it often and innappropriately.

I forgot one ... now that the leaves are beginning to fall, she often wants to go outside and play in the "weavuses"

my almost-3-year-old doesn't mispronounce much these days... but the only one I really miss is "mee-ma" - which was his form of "grandma" ... was a sad day when that one stopped...

and he is only just starting to stop referring to himself in the third person ALL the time...

and he calls farts "pop-offs"... lol

One of my very few words as a toddler (I didn't really speak until 2.5) was "Inkie Franya". I drove my dad crazy with this one day when he was watching me. Apparently, I wanted Inkie Franky, and nothing was going to deter me. He opened every drawer, cabinet, and closet in the house. I was in hysterics, he was near tears when my mom finally got home from wherever. She asked what was wrong, he told her I'd been asking for Inkie Franya, she looked at him like he was an idiot, and proceeded to the kitchen where she made me an Inkie Franya.

For the unitiated...that's an English Muffin. :

My 2yo went straight from jibberish to English; I wish I had gotten to experience some of the words that you guys have (that are completely different from the actual words!)

We have had some funny pronunciation though.
Most of her P's and T's began as K's...
jump sounds like junk
cut = cuck
popcorn = cah-corn

Once, when she was struggling to do something, I asked her, "Can I help you?" Ever since then, if she needs help with something, she'll say, "Help you please!"

Her other funny is that she now says, "oh...yeah!" sometimes. It comes out sounding kind of like, "Oh, why didn't I think of that?" when she says the yeah part. (Hard to explain, but it cracks me up every time.)

Single WAHM to 5yo DD, 2yo DS, and forever 7 week old angel DD.

porcupine - porcuhine

And my favorite is not really a mispronunciation, but rather a word substitution:

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diaper in the sky....

Last time we were under a tornado warning, DH's fire department pager went off alerting him to the fact that we were under a tornado warning (yawn). James grabbed DH's pager, ran to DH and said "Daddy! Go fire fighter! We're POTATO warning."

If he wants carried he'll stop in front of us and say "Mama/Daddy. I carry you."
