Patch speak


For a two year old, Elias has a pretty impressive command of the English language. He speaks in compete sentences a lot and even uses the "I" pronoun. However, he does employ a few words of his own design, which we have all taken over and use casually and automatically in our everyday speech. I thought I would share some of my favorites with you all!

uh-oh = pacifier
This was the first word that Elias made up. I love it! It's the best variation of pacifier I've heard yet.

tiempo = ice cream

pupa
= skateboard

bafio
= basketball

pappiya = spatula

poondie = smoothie

tracia = tractor

milkea
= milk

fric-fic = forklift

coosdriver = screwdriver
