What toddler-speak have you picked up?

I was telling a friend how DD keeps sneaking off to sleep in the "tree bed," then I realized that she had no idea what the heck a tree bed was! (It's the guest room bed with palm leaves on the coverlet)

We also say:
Squeak - any rodent
Buffalo - any stuffed elephant
(elephant->heffalump->buffalo)
Board Movie - Wii Fit
Goo Squeeze - pouch applesauce/purees

What has crept into your everyday lingo?
