    So fun! It’s very hard since each toddler type has their own vocabulary. We haven’t had any toddlers of our own for a while now, but my close friends all have little ones now. This is good practice for me to brush up on my toddler-speak since we will be bringing home our baby from China sometime next year!

  12. I don’t have any new guesses other than what people have already said, but I wanted to share some of ours too. My 4yo still says:

    balanna (banana)
    feeyoot yeeoops (Froot Loops-which I did NOT buy! my parents brought them! gah!)
    beeyoos keeyoos (Blues Clues)

  13. That number 8 has got me stumped…but Lion King looks fave.

  14. Is #8 Lightning Mc Queen?

    I think everyone else had all the best answers for every other choice.

    Okay and I’m sure you are a WTMer… am I right? I swear I should know this but… I can’t for the life of me remember who you are on the boards if you are there… If you aren’t a WTMer I know people have talked about your blog a lot in the past.

    Love your blog.

  17. Hmmm…I’m going to have to go with…

    1:
    2: jam
    3: spaghetti
    4: present
    5: pink
    6: love
    7: Clifford

    10: dirty or Daddy

    I think I’m going to steal this idea for my next Thursday Thirteen…

    I was pointed this direction by “I Should Be Folding Laundry.”
