  1. My little sister always called a belt a blelt. It sounded so cute and was actually so much harder to say than the real word, lol

  2. My son used to call bananas-pronounced (broombaas)

  3. For the longest time, Hope couldn’t say “Kitchen.” She said “Chicken.” She wanted a toy kitchen for Christmas, but asked Santa for a chicken. We had to write a letter to Santa explaining that she really wanted a kitchen, not a chicken. Luckily, he got the message.

  4. I dont know how it started, but my favorite word for pillow is “hapu”

  5. One of my boys has trouble putting words together… so pr comes out pl… so now everyone in the family says pless play LOL

  6. My son calls his stuffed alligator, “geetur”

  7. My son would get excited to have broccoli at dinner and shout, ba-co-WEEE! Now we all say it every time it’s on the menu. :)

  8. My son used to call a mosquito a spageeto.

  9. My brother Andrew used to talk about the “Statue of Liverty”!! My sister Melody heard my mom call me “Julie-Girl” when she was little and ended up calling me “Jewie-Goy” for years and years!!

  13. My 2 year old can’t say her J’s very well, so she’s always asking for goose (juice). Too cute!

  14. Allykatt says:

    My youngest will try to tell back a fairy tale we might have read him and instead of saying “Once upon a time” he insists it it “Once a very time”.

  15. When I was little I couldn’t quite say my name, Jennifer, so I called myself Ferdish.

    Not a baby word but a source of confusion for a small child. I was babysitting for a little girl whose aunt had broken her leg and whose grandmother had her gall bladder removed. I asked Bailey how her aunt was doing and she told me “Aunt Lori has a gall bladder on her leg!” I tried to correct her but she absolutely insisted that Aunt Lori had a gall bladder on her leg. She’s about 13 now and absolutely denies that having happened!

  16. Besides my son currently saying sammich instead of sandwich and vegables instead of vegetables, when he was younger he called cookies coocoos.

  17. cassandra says:

    My son calls his toes- “toe-Toes”- he is 2.5 now and still does, even my 1 year old daughter now calls hers that too! Its pretty cute!

  18. So far I would say it is foose….it is what she calls food right now

  19. I had my “own language” until a speech path helped when I was 4; before then, my older sister would act as my translator. I think she worked this to her advantage sometimes :)

  20. My nephew used to say “Oh Dank-youuuu” every time he wanted something; he thought it was a request.
