Learning the Art of Annunciation

Yes, we are a true southern family with the true southern twang in our speech. In shows itself most clearly through the boys learning to speak. We do teach them the correct way to annunciate as well as the correct numbers of syllables in words. Sometimes it takes, sometimes not. I'll update this section periodically with quips of how differently things sound versus what they are supposed to sound like as the boys talk more and more everyday (and more, and more, and more...)

  • Sometimes when Cole says Jonah he leaves off the "Jo" sound and it comes out sounding like "Jinah" with a long I sound. Poor Jonah.
  • Jonah likes to tell Cole to push when they are playing with a ball or toy. He leaves off the actual "sh" sound and ends up saying "Pus, Cole, you pus!"

Thanks for the laughs!!! Reminds me of hearing that Jonathan used to say "truck" but couldn't yet make a t-sound...instead he used an "f". :-0

That is hilarious! Rush wanted a doctor "kit"...He was yelling in Target, Doctor Tits mommy, Doctor tit!

Gotta love it!

I love the stuff they say. I get kind of sad when Abby learns the right way to say stuff. Like Cindarella used to be Mozerella!
