“Cracker” was one of the first words of all of my children. When moving to solids, crackers are one of the few things you can give a baby that they can eat by themselves with no worry of choking, and I think all of my babies have subsisted on crackers for months of their lives. For me the problem with this being one of their first words came because I’m bilingual with Spanish being my first language. The first four of my kids all repeatedly asked for “caca” at the table. Not cool! So I was extremely proud of Bobby, who said “cracker” very plain from the beginning. I thought I had a verbal genius!
As it turned out, Bobby’s problem with speech has proved to be even more problematic. You see for some odd reason he calls every animal “duck.” I have no idea why that is. We have a dog. Bobby points to her and says, “Duck.” The hamster we are pet sitting, “Duck.” The animals in the book he looks at during church same thing!! The thing is…when he pronounces the word “duck” instead of a “d” sound it comes out pronounced with a “f” sound instead…
HaHa. That’s awesome 🙂
lol Awesome is not the way I’d put it! 🙂

That’s funny … kids and their speech. Reagan still struggles with a couple of sounds. Everything is a he .. and she says vita-em.
Still, it sure is cute!

Oh my. That is funny.
Too funny – kids amaze you sometimes with what they say when they are really trying to say something else

My oldest son did the same thing with “Truck” but leaving out the “r”!! He also did this in the middle of church!! The problem is that the more embarrassed the harder you try to correct your child’s speech and the more persistent (stubborn?) they are NOT to change it!! You are not alone!!
Thanks for linking up over at WholeHearted Home this week and hope to see you this coming week. I hope you had a wonderful weekend?!

It’s also so nice when a small child get’s an owie on a middle finger and proceeds to go around showing everyone. 🙂 Ever had one do that Esther? I bet you have. 🙂 I’ve been there, got the t-shirt! 🙂

Ha!! I’m so glad we have our children so that we never get too serious about life. 🙂 Visiting from Works For Me Wednesday.
ok. that is perfect. we all have been through the duck thing! :). Love the caca reference. In baby-speak, the pronunciation makes complete sense!
When my sister was 4, most of her beginning letter sounds on words was the H sound (fun=hun, truck=huck, etc.) Before church services began one Sunday (Pentecostal,) she was counting the hymnals. “Hun (one,) Who (two,) hee (three,) and I’ll let you figure out how she pronounced “four.” lol
