    My 3.5 turns everything into an adverb. aka "Can I tell you something sadly?" Or "I am so excitedly about that!"

    Backpack =pack pack

    There are so many more but she is starting to say everything correctly and I am so sad

    @JoyfulKiwi: my 4.5 year old still pronounces remote control wrong and we don't have the heart to correct him. He says "rote-ma control" and has since he was under 2. Just don't want to correct him.

    Other words which are currently mispronounced are:
    Neverland= rev-e-land
    Interrupting= dis-uh-rupting

    Love these! My almost 23mo has a few mispronounced words I love:
    -"traw-be-yay" for strawberry
    -"bubbyfly" for butterfly
    -"leggybut" for ladybug
    -what sounded like "f*@#ing keno" for vacuum cleaner 😂
    There are more but I can't think of them right now. ☺

    Goldfish = cole-seesh
    Ice cream = eye-keen
    Ketchup = dup a dup (he's starting to pronounce this correctly but he used to say this because when we were teaching him to dip in ketchup we would show him and say "dip dip dip in the ketchup" so that morphed into dup a dup.")

    Not a pronounciation, but when you ask DD (20 months) where her knees are, she fake sneezes.

  15. FaithFertility

    eggplant / 11861 posts

    Broccoli = wok-Lee
    Milk= Miltch
    Giuliana her name = Jew-Nana

  16. 2littlepumpkins

    grapefruit / 4455 posts

    Stah-beee = strawberry 🍓 = lo2's favorite food.

    The only ones I can think of that lo1 says is "alligator" for elevator and "escagator" for escalator, and she still has a little trouble with the r sound, but she's pretty much got everything else down!

    Oh, yeah! My other favorite one is how DD says itsy bitsy spider: "ipsy pido". 😍

    I think my favorite mispronounciation has been "na na" for another. He still uses it at 3 years old and it is so cute to see hear a word he used when he first started talking.

    He also called escalators "demos" for a while. I had no idea what he was talking about until he finally pointed it out to me. I have no idea why he thought it was called that, but it cracks me up.

    He also calls cantaloupe "pineapple" for some reason. This has been really confusing because we have been buying both for weeks since there have been great prices and we like them. I always have to double check if he actually wants pineapple or if he means cantaloupe.
