This Pronunciation Trivia is cracking me up!

First, upon further review, I think "guacamole" sounds more like "dat-da-wall-e" when Tyler says it.

Can you guess these? Don't feel bad if you can't. The ones I remember are the ones he pronounces the worst.

Please guess, because it does make me laugh. But even if you don't, I want these for when I print this blog into a baby book of sorts!
  1. co-ah
  2. cum'ah co-ah
  3. pow
  4. prubble
  5. huhnuh
  6. hainey
  7. booh-ah
On a side note, I just asked Tyler to say #5 above. He obliged, but he had a mouth full of croutons, so I requested, "Say it again." He replied, "Anen" (aka "again.") Smart aleck.

Tyler trivia + answer

Okay, guys, I'm not posting an answer to yesterday's trivia until at least one person guesses.

Here's today's trivia. What is Tyler saying if you hear this:

"wa wa wole-y" (This is one word.)

Because there's no chance anyone will ever guess this, the answer is in the comments.

I love that Tyler is learning to say so much, and I think his pronunciation is adorable.

Tyler's New Best Friend

Dakota here tried to adopt my cousin's family. Unfortunately for her, their dog objected.

So Tyler suggested she adopt us. He's pretty persuasive, isn't he?

Fortunately for Tyler, she seems to like us.

Fortunately for me, she seems to have unlimited patience for the hugs and antics of a 2-year-old.

A line of kisses

I walked into the kitchen last night to find a row of unwrapped Hershey kisses. Probably 12. And someone had bitten off the very top of each.

I wish I had the self-restraint of a two-year-old.

Toddler Sci-Fi

So, last night, I decided to brush Tyler's teeth before we went to his room for the diaper, pajamas routine.

Once again, he was fighting me, so I decided to give him a "choice." Per the suggestion of Tyler's Grandma Denise and Tyler's OT, I shouldn't say, "Do you want to brush your teeth?", I should say, "Do you want to brush your top teeth or your bottom teeth?"

So I tried it.

"Tyler, top teeth or bottom teeth?"

He got very excited and reached for the toothbrush saying "gongun" (bottom). I let him have the toothbrush. And guess where he tried to put it. Yep, he tried to brush his *bottom* teeth. I'll have to put the diaper on first from now on@
