A blog game giveaway!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and surviving 18 months with twins, I thought I would have a little game on my blog. Below you will find words that Nate and Alex use and how they pronounce them. Your job is to translate the toddler word or phrase into the real word or phrase. Post your answers in the comments. The person who gets the most correct will win a $20 gift card to their choice of Starbucks, Amazon, Target, Toys R Us, or Babies R Us.

Alex:
1. Nana
2. Naynay
3. Beebee
4. Teetee
5. Ha
Tie-breaker bonus: Nomuhmon

Nate:
6. Hell
7. Swee
8. Ahsigh
9. Mitbah
10. Meemoh
Tie-breaker bonus: Suhgo

Rules:
A. You must post your guesses as a comment. No email responses will be accepted.
B. You can guess as many times as you want, with your LAST comment being your official guess.
C. The game ends 8AM EST Wednesday November 14. I will post the answers and the winner tomorrow.

Ok, I am rethinking the tiebreaker-for nate- how about 'circle'. Number 9 is stumping me! It can't be bubble so strike that. Got it! Meatball!

Okay, I started to do it, but then I found myself cheating off of Megan (who I think has really good guesses, by the way), so I decided not to. But what a fun contest!
