Watching children learn and grow is one of the most delightful and light-hearted things ever. Their baby voices and misspellings are among the most adorable aspects of childhood. A mom, Stephanie Murray (@stephmurayyyy), has the internet smitten with her toddler Lily Murray's misspellings and words. The young girl, who is just learning to associate the alphabet with sounds and frame words, has become the cutest sensation. The mom shared a post on X revealing that her daughter had received a label maker and had been attempting to spell words and create labels for items in her home.

Sharing a picture of the amusing labels her daughter created, Murray couldn’t help but resonate with her adorable plight to spell. “My daughter got a label maker from a relative for Christmas and it is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Not sure what I'm going to do when she actually learns to spell properly,” she wrote in her caption. Sure enough, the labels were correctly put on every drawer, cabinet and space with any item. Moreover, some even had more than one label to specifically highlight each item in it. However, the hysterical part was the spelling. Lily had made her own vocabulary and it is downright hilarious.

For instance, “Magnets” read “Magnits,” “Crayons and Felt-tips” read “Crawons and Felltips.” The spellings did not end there; the girl confidently labeled “Purse and Bags” as “Pers and Bags,” and “Pencils and Markers” became “Pensols and Marerceurs.” The girl was delighted with her gift. "It was a perfect gift to get because she loves it and she just immediately was like, 'Okay, I'm going to label this house to death,' you know?" Murray said in an interview with TODAY. The girl did indeed go all out with her gift. 

"For a while there, she was labeling anything that was in front of her, like 'table,' 'chair.' She also labeled the door of the bedroom she shares with her younger sister with, ‘Jane and Lily's room. Keep out,’” the mom shared. There were more vibrant spellings the girl creatively came up with based on how she heard the words. “Sisers” for “Scissors,” “Wockytockys and miekufons” for “Walkie-talkies and microphones,” “Goory” for “Jewelry” and “Beeds” for “Beads.” Her spellings though horribly wrong, add a tasteful twist to the otherwise mundane items.


The mom further shared a heartwarming encounter thanks to the label marker. She recalled asking her daughter for a laptop label that read "Do it poorly” as a reminder to avoid being a perfectionist with her work. When she explained the same to her daughter, the girl had heart-melting labels ready. She made four labels, two of which read “Wel dun” and “Wel duhn.” The fourth one read, "Momy you have dun so so so good wif your werc." "I think it was coming from a place of her wanting me to know that I'm not 'doing it poorly,' that I'm doing it well,” Murray remarked. People couldn’t agree more with the girl. @scorpio222sweet said, “‘Scissors’ honestly should be spelled that simply.” @magicinthealps added, “I support any child having fun with the label maker.”
