I looooove those toddler words, they are so cute! I have a list from when Emma was learning to talk and I'm so glad I made it...things like "mannay" for bandaid, which sometimes also meant sticker, and "gocuck" for chocolate.
I particularly love your definition format. You're so cute!

Your girls are so sweet. I loved sitting with Mace when you went to pick up the kids from school. She snuggled up next to me and wrapped her arm around mine. She's a doll.

And Paige is so cute especially when she talks.
