Not so long ago, these are some of the words that came out out her mouth on a regular basis:
Paci - Pacifier
Shannon used pacifiers till she was four years old. People said that she will have difficulty speaking. I found out later on that they were wrong. Shannon spoke clearly when she was a baby, she'd pull out her paci and say, "Hi" or "Thank you" before she could walk.
Later on when we wanted her to stop using her paci, I did several tricks. One of then is to hide it but then she'd say, "Find it." I put a tiny bit of cayenne pepper on it and she said, "Wash it." I can't remember now how we actually ended the paci business.
Mooneena - Formula
She called her bottle formula but it came out as "mooneena".
Mother and Father - Mommy and Daddy
Tim and I were called father and mother, respectively. We thought that the reason for this was that she watched "Little Bear" almost everyday when she was little. When we'd picked her up from the nursery she'd run to us saying "Mother!" or "Father!" while some of the other kids can't even talk. It was refreshing to hear that but then she grew up and found out that other kids called their parents differently.
Photosynthesizing - Sitting in the sun
