she is 2.2 (in a few days).

She said it clearly, over and over, all syllables, with no baby mispronunciation.

How sad am I? I was soooooooooooo proud grin [proud mummy emoticon]

Come on, rub my PFB ego please?!!!!

Well my 2.4 DD says "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"

rubs PFB nose in mud grin

<actually she says "docious" to mean Mary poppins....but at least she is attempting supercali..blah..blah...docious>

No rubbing from me I'm afraid - dd was saying it much earlier than that, accompanied by me waving my arms around above my head and going 'woo woo' to distinguish one from a plane that has wide open arms and goes rrrrrrrrrrrrr! grin

<crumbles in heap>

She is not a genuis!

<wails, wipes mud from face>

I mean, of course its not the only word she can say. That would be a bit unusual wouldn't it?!!!

"What was your baby's first word?"
"oh really?" hmm

CantSleepWontSleep Thu 28-Aug-08 22:08:24

Well, she still may be a genius, but not for this fact alone grin.

PavlovtheCat Thu 28-Aug-08 22:09:16

i was very impressed!!!

LittlePushka Thu 28-Aug-08 22:22:06

Aww, that is so sweet. DS1 23mths just brought me a "capitiller" the other day. Just too cute to correct.!

PavlovtheCat Thu 28-Aug-08 22:30:24

LittlePushka - thats so sweet. I do like it when she gets things a little wrong, although I correct them, sometimes I have to force myself to repeat it the right way not the wrong way!

She say crododillie for crocodile, and chilly bang for chitty chitty bang bang, and pasta cake for patter cake!

She also says 'cock' for clock blush grin!

PavlovtheCat Thu 28-Aug-08 22:31:09

...although I am hoping that now she can say a word with the 'l' pronounced correctly she will say clock correctly ! Seeing as it was the 'l' she had trouble with!

My DD2 who is same age as yours only lent DD1 her toy today on the basis that it was "probably" ! hmm She repeated it over and over in a very serious fashion before handing it over saying one final 'probably'!

PavlovtheCat Thu 28-Aug-08 22:34:10

Thomcat - lovely eh?

DS spoke very little until a couple of months ago (now 2.8) but can now says "sainsbree" and "Maka Pence" (marks and SPencer).

Which is particularly amusing as I shop in Aldi blush Haven't corrected him about that though!

PavlovtheCat Thu 28-Aug-08 22:40:56

LOL at mini kewcumber!!!
waswondering - she sounds adorable.

Gosh, dont mind more cuteness/genius anecdotes, bring em on!

I look after a 2.8 year old and when she needs the toilet she always says " i did a pee" instead of "i NEED a pee" .
Have to admit the first time she said it i though she had actually done a pee.
No matter how many time you correct her she always says "did" next time.

LittlePushka Thu 28-Aug-08 22:54:34

Oh how adorable all your LO's!!

DS1 also says "buller dollar" for bulldozer, and he cannot get his teeth around what to cal his Aunt Alison - so she gets "Aunty Nice" ! Priceless

More cutisms please!

PavlovtheCat Thu 28-Aug-08 23:05:35

Baby pavlov says 'gimdrum' for children.
She says 'mines' instead of 'mine'
And she says '10 minutes please?' with both hands up and fingers splayed whenever we walk past waterstones!

LittlePushka Thu 28-Aug-08 23:16:11

Oh she sounds gorgeous! DS1 says "Not dog, mammy pump" when I (rarely, of course) try to blame the dog...blushgrin

PavlovtheCat Thu 28-Aug-08 23:19:13

LOL Littlepushka! DD blames DH, even if it me, she says 'scu me daddy'!!! grin

LittlePushka Thu 28-Aug-08 23:32:58

Sadly DS runs away and puts a cushion on his head when DH lets rips - so I suppose I oughtto be grateful!

LittlePushka Thu 28-Aug-08 23:33:57

...we are not really a horridly gross family, honest!

LackaDAISYcal Thu 28-Aug-08 23:39:37

WIBU to go on there and say Pavlov's DD is locked inside your pooter wink
