Toddler Talk - Chapter 1

Sir Baby Bennett is no longer baby babbling away, but rather toddler talking. From the most hilarious renditions of a story he is certain he is telling (which I can assure you could only be understood if you speak Mandarin) to simple one word repeats of whatever he hears, he is always keeping us thoroughly entertained and ALWAYS ALWAYS talking.


I decided to keep a list of funny Bennett-isms as they unfold and today I wanted to share that list with you. Bennett is saying PLENTY of words, and most of them sound like what they actually are and/or are easily understood. However, here are some of our favorites that may be a little more coded.
