Alice is coming up on 2.5 years and I can hardly believe it. She has always been a little babbler, and so eager to babble and chatter that she is taking her sweet time actually learning the words she pretends to babble. Finally, she seems to be slowing down enough to pause, listen, and learn words, and they're being pronounced in the best way possible. That said, I use this time to document some words that are uniquely Alice in pronunciation.
Suh-no = Snow (snow is yucky, in case you didn't know... it lands on cars and trees and makes a mess)
Cweeb = Crib
Taw-wees = Charles
Aw mawnin' = Good morning
Sussin = Medicine
Twends = Friends (everyone is a twend)
Munch = Lunch and/or sandwich
Beekies = Blankies
Aw dawb = Good job
Pawno = Piano
Bah = Umbrella
A-mawn = Amen
Ginks = Thanks
Last but not least, unfortunately, Alice thinks her name is Ass. That's okay. She'll get that L and I soon. We hope.
Hands down, our favorite word of hers is "cweeb"... it cracks us up every time. At this point, her pronunciations are cute. If she keeps up this cuteness through age 3, I might get worried. As for now, I'm embracing her sweet little baby talkin'.
P.S. Alice has been stealing the show on the blog... Charles, you're up next, don't you even worry.
