If DD wanted to be lifted up she would ask for a "carryou" (presumably because we would say to her "do you want me to carry you?" and she adopted it as a noun.

My 6 year old as a toddler used to call his dummy a numina, and his blanket a ba bye grin

Unfortunately most of dds words sound like swear words.

She does say 'der la la' instead of 'there they are'. She says it in a really french accent too.

Over the last few months, my son has been developing his language skills and as he comes to grips with his vocabulary, as with any toddler, he has created a number of indecipherable words that have come to mean something to him.
Boo-shoes, dacklallies, up-a-der, baba ? you get the idea.

Anyway, my thought is to collate his and everyone else's childhood/offsprings words and compile a 'Baby Dictionary'. I've already got a couple of hundred from friends and family and now just wanted to cast the net a little further. I've started a blog where I'm starting to catalogue them all and hope to have a website up a running in the new year.

If you or your little one(s) have any words/sentences/names that you used as a kid, i'd love to add them to the list.

Many thanks
