I love hearing my kids talk and pronounce things. As they get older they start saying things correctly and you forget all about their mixed up syllables. I love looking back at old videos and hearing those tiny little voices. Here’s a little list of things they still say and I know I am going to miss terribly when they finally start saying them correctly.
- Buh-cole (Nicole)
- The American Falcon (The Millenium Falcon)
- Lovinstine Day (Valentines Day)
- Ayaphant (elephant)
- Ammimal (animal)
- Darf Vader (Darth Vader)
- Deaton (Deacon)
These are all words that no matter how many times I give them the correct pronunciation, they still say it the same each time. Funny that they can pronounce Archaeopteryx, Coelophysis, and General Grievous just fine, but no matter how much I try correcting the word “animal” it still comes out “ammimal.” To top it off Logan INSISTS Dragon should start with a “J.” Hearing him trying to say with a strong “D” is rather comical DahRagon. It’s like he has a brogue. I am going to have to record all of these before it all ends.
What are some of your favorite words your kids try to say?
