I am assuming there is a certain “language” all toddlers have that only their parents can understand. If I am wrong then please, do me and my son a favor and tell me. Either way it doesn’t really matter but if any of you have been through the toddler stage with your child you might be familiar with this “language”.
Owen will try to say anything you ask him to and usually gets the syllables and the tone correct but it’s the actual pronunciation that is off. So I have made a “Translation Key” for Owen’s words just in case any of you get stranded on an island with him.

I would like to mention that my lovely brother (http://www.patricksomerville.com/) taught him the word Jesus over Skype a few months back and it is one of the clearest words he says. My brother, the author, with the immense vocabulary, taught him to say Jesus. I can’t think of a word we use less of in this house. Of course, I said it the other day about the number of sugar ants on my counter and he said it back to me. It is possible that I taught him the word. I also heard him repeat the word Dammit last week. Time for a swear jar.
