Adventures in Diction

I think all parents work on clarity of speech with toddlers.  (at least that's what I tell myself).

The most common phrase at our house is More Nuk Pease.  translated: More Milk Please.

We are working on stringing words together to say I would like or I want more milk please.

Believe it or not, this is actually a fun little game we play!  James like repeating words and can hear himself getting better at it.  Nuk is slowly becoming MMMMMMMMMuk which a definite step in the right direction.  Go J go!

Yesterday:
Dana:"I want more mmmmilk please." (medium speed)
J: Repeat
Dana: "I. Want." (pause) (slow speed)
(pause)
(pause)
J: "A COOKIE!! Yeah!"

Nice try, kid.
