    tell us all, the cute little words, your 'adorables', made up, for the ones they couldn't say.
    Here's a few that my own kids, and my grandbabies have used:

    instead of windshield wipers....'winshipers'
    instead of Pepsi.....pep-pep
    for a while, instead of being nana, I was 'Nonnie'
    instead of calling aunt - Lois,...she was 'Go-ey' :mrgreen:
    The stick in a lollipop, was a chicken bone..."i'm all done, here's the chicken bone, mommy!" :lol:

    Once my little cutie pie, DGD, insisted that when she grew up, she was going to have a little hair on her chin like her daddy.
    She grew quite irritated, when I tried to explain, that as a girl
    she wouldn't :shock: :? :evil:

    I have a sister whose name is Darlene. My daughter couldn't say that so she called her Aunt Duh. And it stuck!! My daughter is 30 now and EVERYBODY stills calls sis Aunt Duh! When my daughter was about two, my parents took her out for dinner and she wanted lasagna. They never did figure out what she wanted until I picked her up the next day.

    :lol: ...aunt DUH! boy, my hubby would have jumped all over that one!
    I really had to work with my grbaby #2, to get what she wanted. She had a language all her own, and we had to get her to point, and hold things up, etc.
    When she finally started talking more, I would say, "what color is it? or, what do you do with it?" over time she became much more comfortable with her inability to enunciate, bc she knew we would take the time to understand, as best we could. I would always make a big deal, and act like..."oh, silly me",...when I would finally-get it. Took the spotlight off of her.
    One grandbaby, can't say grandma, so she says, "ya-ya" :D
