Words I Will Be Sad for My Daughter to Pronounce Correctly

Hearing my daughter learn new words is pretty much my favorite thing on the planet. At 19 months she is totally in that stage where she will attempt to parrot pretty much anything we say, and I love hearing her personal adaptations. Here are a few of my favorite toddler words. It will be bittersweet when she finally starts pronouncing them correctly.
