Mine has to be the way she says "squirrel" it's curl-l kind of like curl but she's made it into 2 syllables like squirrel LOL

and "OBAMA!" accompanied by throwing her hands in the air cheer-style, this started a couple months ago during a coverage of a rally on TV and now happens whenever she notices him on TV.

and the way she barks when she sees a dog LOL.

anyone else's kid saying anything cute??

My DD used to say "yuck" instead of "lick," as in "I yucked that lollipop." She finally gave it up recently (she's almost four) and I was sad to see it go. She also says "even" instead of "although." "I want a treat even I haven't eaten dinner yet." So strange!

My DS has a better grasp on language, even though he's younger. We have this doll who looks like Jesus, though, and he calls it "Cheeze-Its."

It's not a verbal word, it's a sign: "gorilla". He made it up himself, in imitation of me thumping his chest whenever we saw pics of a gorilla in a book. He runs his hand up and down his chest and belly--so cute. Now, if you say the word, he makes the sign. Also when we go to the zoo. And read "goodnight, gorilla." And carrying a small stuffed gorilla we bought him all around the house.

Gorilla, gorilla, gorilla--we "hear" it all the time.

She's kinda grown out of it, but I loved "dee-do!" which meant "There you go" - usually said as she ran up, gave me something, and ran off!

my DD always says together like, "two-deg-gah" and I love it when she says, "we're doing it TWO-DEG-GAH!" I'll miss it when she starts saying it correctly!

With such a serious face, she says "ewww gross kaka!" And it just cracks everyone up.

Or when we are at the playground she says "how bout nudder swing?" (how about another swing?)

DS has his own little language it seems. I hope he doesn't give up tractor for awhile--it's "doo-dah" and is just the cutest thing.

Dog=shoosh shoosh

He's also started to say "go away" (he learned it from an older child who probably didn't want DS to follow his every move any longer). His version is "dough way." I can't help but think it's cute when he says "dough way mama!" LOL.

Well, we have quite a few...our barnyard of animals, just some of my favorites:

donkeys say "eee-awwww"
owls say "whooooooo whoooooo"
kitties say "meeeeee oww"

WaWa for water still gets me.

Oh, and I just scored this totally sweet little ride on John Deer tractor for him at a yardsale. He says "trac-or" and "doggie" because he thinks the little deer symbol is a dog. We call it his "John Doggie". :

Well I'd guess your DD is saying "even" instead of "even though," just dropping the "though." "Cheeze-its" is pretty funny.

I love the way my DS says "pet" he pronounces it "pep." Oh and he said his first swear word about a month ago, "shiat." : It was pretty cute though.

wow wow = dog
miau miau= cat
aito= kitty(gatito)
aposa= butterfly(mariposa)
era=guera(our dog's name is guera that means "blonde")
arrow=car
rron=Aaron(DS)
onsa=Aldonza(DD)
anza=Arantza(DD)
ana=Ivana(DD)
api= Papi(Daddy)
and a lot of other cute things, but especially her pronounciation is so cute, but my favourite has to be "ame amami ame" that means "hungry mommy hungry" when she wants to nurse.

Mine does the squirrel too! And it sounds a lot like her "coral" that are in the reef tank.

She also says:
nake = snake
ishies = fishies
kakrs = crackers
nugga = chicken nugget

And just today she said "gilla" for gorilla. So cute!

I tried to teach mine to say Hillary, but he never could. He really latched on to Bocko Bama though. He loves to say Bocko Bama.

My favorite word of his is Calcinator which is meant to be calculator.

DD has the darndest time saying "loader" she says lo-ther and sticks her tongue out funny when she says it. DS refers to himself as Aldie, and he likes to narrate his day. All day long I hear "Aldie drink milk, Aldie running, Aldie eating lunch" I love it.

Oatmeal - actually it sounds more like "O-meal", but this is his word for oatmeal, open, and (this is the best) airplane. He learned all three words in the same week, and they sounded pretty much like they should for a couple of days, then they all became "O-meal". It was hilarious being at the airport with him the last time we flew.

"Hide-y bucks" - Handy dandy notebook. This is his newest phrase - it took me a day and a half to figure out what he was saying.

I LOVE what he calls me: he started out with "Mama", then for a little while was calling everyone "Ma" (dad, grandma, everyone), then it went back to me and eventually turned into: "Ma-mum" I think it's the cutest thing ever.

I could go on and on - I love everything he says! Well almost - like a PP, I used to think it was cute when he said no, but uh, not anymore.

When you sing "a pirate, a pirate, a pirate says:"

My 14 mo ds replies "Arrrrrrrrrr".

I think it's from the Backyardigans, but it's hilarious.

Oh, I forgot! Speaking of squirrels, we have a real squirrel problem in the neighborhood, so I always yell, "naughty squirrel, get out of my yard!" apparently while pointing. Now ds always points and wags his finger going, "Naugh! Naugh squirrel!"

Rhinoceros ! I cannot even begin to spell how she pronounces it, but it funnier than hell when she says it. Also I love hearing her say "Meerkat" (can you tell we watch Animal Planet?) and saying "Sissy Pie" which is her baby sister's nickname :
