Thirteen favorite animals and their toddler names

Thirteen favorite animals and their toddler names

Lil Duck is very much into animals and his Little People Zoo right now, so here are thirteen of his favorite animals, his names for them and then his renditions of their noises!

  1. Elephant (“elfant”) – the most favorite of all – “trooooooooooororororoooooooooo!!”
  2. Yak (“wwwaaakkkk”)- “mooooooooark!”
  3. Penguin (“pengin”) – “wark!”
  4. Dolphin (“dolpin”) – “arf, arf”
  5. X-ray fish (“x feeesh”) – “(blows like a blow toy fish)”
  6. Chocobo (“cobo”) – “wark, qweh!” (ok, not a real animal but he LOVES it!)
  7. Polar bear (“pbear”) – “GRRRRRRRRRRRR!”
  8. Bird (“byrrrrrddd”) – “cheep, cheep, cheep!”
  9. Turkey (“urky”) – “obble, obble”
  10. Manatee (“babba matee”) – “babba mantee!!” (Barbara Manatee from Veggie Tales, anyone??)
  11. Lizard (“izard”) – “eeeekkk!” (maybe from mommy? ;))
  12. Dog (“dog”) – “oof, oof” – very realistic barking and whining!
  13. Duck – last but not least – “quack, quack”!

    I love the words they come up with for words. It is so cute to hear them talk. I look forward to Justice discovering animals. He already is pretty into them now. Thanks for stopping by.

    How sweet. My son calls animals only by the sound they make.

  9. Julie August 31, 2006 at 8:22 pm #

    I love listening to little people trying to imitate animals :) Too cute!

    That was great! When my boys were little they would do the same thing.
    Little kids can be so much fun.

    How sweet is that? (Can I come hang out witchoo?)

    Thanks for bopping by Snarkypants. I will go check out the carnival next. I didn’t have anything worthy of sending in but want to keep up with it.

    have a great weekend!

    I was impressed that Lil Duck knew about Chocobos. Not too many kids walking around knowing that mythical creature!

    All of his sounds and names are just TOO CUTE! But then of course you know this since you are raising him to take over the world through world CUTENESS domination. We’re onto you, Mama Duck!

    Happy Thursday to you and your’s!

    Awww…that was too cute!

    Happy T13!

    How can one not smile while reading this? Especially when two of your children are grown and have since left the nest and the third is has long since passed the “cute” stage.

    Have a happy.

    So cute! Lil Duck will love reading this when he gets older.

    BTW, love the tag line!

  19. Margie August 31, 2006 at 3:35 pm #

    Hehe, such cute sounds. I love it! Katie still calls Elephants – “Eeephants” Great list it brought a smile to my face. Take care.

  20. robin August 31, 2006 at 3:13 pm #

    Way cute!!! Jacob used to call fish “oof”. We don’t know why. LOL

  21. Carey August 31, 2006 at 2:17 pm #

    Aww, great choices, Lil’ Duck! And I didn’t know Veggie Tales had a manatee! Barbara Manatee, how cute…I’ll have to tell my mom — that’s her name. The Barbara part, not Manatee. ;)

    Thanks for stopping by my TT!

    How fun! In Romanian, the duck says “mack mack” and the dog says “hum hum”. I can’t remember the others but I thought it was interesting how different languages interpret what the animals “say”.

  30. ali August 31, 2006 at 12:37 pm #

    aw. that’s cute!
