So most babies don't pronounce everything correctly at this age. Shawn is a good talker and most words he does say just fine, but he shortens a lot of words. Like he says appies (for apples and really any fruit he calls an appie), nana (for banana), yo-yo for yogurt. I'm sure there are others but that's just what I thought of just now.
Yogurt is "go gurt" Our cat bella is "bo bo". Night night is "ni ni", apple sauce is "apple". Milk is "mil" water is "wo". Boob is "ba boob". The funniest is breakfast. Reagan's now saying "ba beast". That's my favorite.
Zane calls all birds ducks. And he calls Ryllan something similar to how personwith a Russian accent would saw jaw jaw. I have no idea why. I think he is trying to say Ry Ry. But he says his own name the his other sibilings names well. He shortens sentences a lot. He's been saying ball since like 9 months old or so, but no instead of ball he is saying bung. I don't know why he changed that. "No work." if the batteries ran out in one of his toys and such. My kids have never been great at pronunciation when they are little, despite having a large vocabulary.

Both my girls like My Little Pony. Kia calls every pony "pih pie" for pinkiepie except for "abu gada" which is applejack.
I give her a chewable vit D supplement every day and she often begs for it by saying "iba" for vitamin. That's about it for English words
It's funny to observe in her that kids really do chose the easiest word. We have a bil(tri)lingual household Finnish/Icelandic/(English). I speak Icelandic with her and am with her most of the time she picks those words up a lot. I have noticed numerous times that she is saying that Icelandic word, learns the same in Finnish and starts using that. An example for teddy bear she started saying "nanne" for "nalli" instead of trying to bother with the complexities of "bangsi".

She usually speaks pretty clearly, but her funny word is popsicle. She calls them poppaloo's. My husband asked her if she wanted a "bobaloo" and she quickly and firmly told him "POPPALOO" lol. We had to laugh at her correcting his mispronounciation.
