Toddler Talk

Shelby and I have developed a shared language over her years of assimilating to my world and vice versa. Some words were shortened to get the point across more easily in that phase when we repeat things over and over again..."Does Shelby want a granola bar? Do you want a'nola bar? Nola, Shelby?" John thinks this is all completely assenine and is convinced she'll graduate from college and still refer to her bedding as "Sheeps & Blankleys". I thought it might be fun to list some of her "Toddlerisms" and see if anyone else out there is fluent. Here Goes: Carder, as in, "I'll be the carder." Hornk, Wambaids, Jellyfish (the edible ones), Piggy Web, Tippies, Milks, Cycle, Body (a specific part with an unspecific name), Scariea, and the easiest one: Listick. Anyone care to take a guess? I'll post translations tomorrow.

What are the translations? You got me thinking about my own toddler's talk.. I don't know where she comes up with some of it. Pretty cute though.
Thanks for your blog, I love reading it.
