    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

    GS called McDonalds Nick Dommos. Also, the local fast food chain offers courtesy cones called Kiddie cones. He called them cat cones.

    My 2 yr old GS just left from being here for 10 days. Here's my favorite-

    My husband drives a Mini Cooper- Noah calls it a mini pooper (We laughed so hard at this, he really thinks that what it is)

    My daughter couldn't say wash cloth- she called it crash crash.
    Ketchup was keppie (her 4th food group)

    My youngest son didn't say diaper- he said bapper. We still call diapers bappers 18 years later.

    Oh- he called me grammiebaby since I call him Noah baby, he would laugh after- like he knew he shouldn't be doing it but he did.

    I miss him terribly- I swear i dreamed him talking to me, his sweet little baby voice that enunciates each syllable.

    We had our grandsons with us when we were buying groceries. My husband put a box of fudgesicles in the cart, and my grandson Ben, 3, said "Oh boy, ice cream on a stick."

    these are all so great, I am just cracking up, here. DH is gone, or he would come running to see what is so funny, and of course, what he was missing! Y'all must be as entertaining as the tv!
    I just remembered when bearpaw said rah-rah...one of my younger brothers called me, sha-sha, and he called our dog, ro-ro! :lol:

    My son couldn't say my sister's name- Betsy- he called her Aunt Pepsi. Now they all call her that.
    I also have a niece named Betsy and my grandkids call her Auntie Pepsi.

    My brother in law's name is Rich--well, my kids used to call him Uncle Bitch :oops: and when Uncle Bitch would lean over, his pants revealed a "plumber's crack". My kids refer to that as Uncle Bitchie pants now...

    My grandchildren all call me Grandma Honey. I just love it.

    Instead of spaghetti, they say "puzgetti"...

    My grandson has always been so concerned about safety in the car. Even when he was just tiny, he make sure we were all buckled up. If someone wasn't buckled, he would yell--"it's not a safe car!" Even when he isn't with us now, we ask if it is a safe car...

    I'll have to think about this for awhile, because I am sure I can come up with a few more.

    I have really enjoyed reading all the others. Thanks, quiltncrazy, for asking for us to share!

    My youngest DD loves Slim Jims and keeps a box in her closet. My DGD,who is 3, came to me one day wanting a "slam glam". It took me forever to figure out she wanted one of Brianna's Slim Jims.

    My granddaughter, when asked which part of the chicken she wanted said chicken on the bone, that was a a chicken leg. About 3, she asked me why her babysitter eats mud and wanted her to eat it too but she wouldn't. After a few questions about it, I found out she was referring to bean dip.
