There's probably more that I'm forgetting. :-p But I will say that Natalie combines several of these into sentences and phrases. Also of note is that "tickle," "thank you," and "there you go" sound pretty much the same the way she says them; you basically have to go by context as to which one she means.

She got a hold of my wallet awhile back and pulled out my debit card. She handed it to me and said, "Wanna pay?"

I'll try to add more if I think of them!

How funny about not saying "fork" in public. :) My little brother used to say "fruck" instead of "truck". One day while walking through the parking lot to a store, he kept pointing at trucks and yelling "FRUCK Mama!! FRUCK!!". My mother was mortified because people kept staring but poor Michael had no clue. :)

I got a very nasty look in Target one day when Sarah was a baby trying to say "bulky." it didn't sound much like "bulky" at all! :-p

My mom says when my brother was learning to say "thank you," she had to make sure she immediately said "You're welcome" so that listeners would know he wasn't saying something else entirely!

Lol! Really, you'd think people wouldn't assume the worst about the things babies say. Then again, I have heard a few toddlers use a true swear word!
