There is something, maybe fortunate maybe unfortunate, that I think our girls get from me. They have a special ability to make up their own words. They will add or change sounds so that normal words are different. These are outside of the normal words, like fossball (softball) and princessessess that they regularly mispronounce.

Some of Tryn's:

Sophanator (Sophie, her dog)
Berlin-y-lynn (Berlin)
SpankyManke (Mankie/Blankie)

Tryn will really just try out any new sound along with a word to see how it sounds, which is something that I find myself doing occasionally - especially if it rhymes. It's just more fun that way.

Berlin even does it, although at a more limited level:

Slippies (slippers)
Shoesies (shoes)
Sockies (socks)

She mainly just likes to add "e" sounds onto the end of words that she can say perfectly fine otherwise.

Crazy kids. I don't know where they get these silly ideas from.

Haha!! Oh, and if you noticed who was in every single picture with Trynica in the previous post give yourself a pat on the back. Yes, she was with Tryn the entire time.
