I could listen to George talk all day. His sweet little voice just melts my heart, and he says some of the funniest things. So I want to start documenting those things before I forget.
Here are some of the phrases and words that he has had.
For the longest time he called his cousin Ava, Eva.
He likes to drop parts of words like “liveries” is deliveries, and “arm” is alarm.
Broccoli is “backoli.”
A piggy bank is a “moneyer.”
Uses is “oozes.”
Caterpillar is “lalapiller.”
Pretzels is “printzels.”
He says “full it up” for fill it up. And “hot it up” to warm things.
For a long time he called a police car a race car.
We live next to the capital of Missouri, and every time we drive by, George says “There’s the catapult.”
A yoyo is a “sticker roller.”
A peacock is a “peahock.”
Before we got chickens, he used to call them “brockers.”
A pepperoni pizza is a “macaroni pizza.” He does know the difference of pasta macaroni.
A chimney is a “smoker arm.”
An ostrich is a “raustid.”
Fire sparks are “jumpers.”
A microwave is a “counterwave.”
He is so smart, but there are moments where he uses these phrases that remind me how small he really is.
