Does your child mispronounce their name. I know Eli is still a little behind in speech (according to speech therapist he's actually on track) but I think it's the cutest thing that he calls himself Eyi Dunner.
If your child mispronounces their name, what do they call themselves?
Merrick pronounces his first and last name correctly, he has a little bit of a struggle with Dwight though.
Bryce is my speech kid, and Merrick can talk just as well as Bryce does and most of the time Mer talks better. Bryce has only 23 letter/letter combo sounds that he's lacking on though... When he started there were 56 letter/letter combo sounds that he was lacking.
Our docs won't even consider speech an issue till the kiddo is 4, then they'll have the school district do a speech eval.
I think it's especially funny that Eli has no problems with L or G sounds but he learned his name before he learned those sounds so it's kind of stuck. I know from Daryn that it will correct itself in time. Like for a while, Daryn could say lollipop and enunciate every sound properly yet she still said 'I wuv you' and 'yewwow'.
