Do I have an accent?

So in an effort to keep my friend Lori entertained while she is confined to recovering from this, I decided to vlog for her.

But what about?

Well, since she is also sort of an expert in the field of language and speech development…AND since she held my hand and listened to me while about Eddie not saying any words for so long…I decided that a vlog about, well, TALKING would be appropriate.

This one has been floating around the blog world for a bit.

I saw it on Jen’s blog.

I decided to get my whole family in on it.  So first you will see Cort reading the words that are below the video.  Then I ask him some questions.  Then we flip and I do the words and answer the questions.

Then there is some Eddie nonsense.

So Lori…here are the Sluiters:  talking.

And here are the words we are saying.  You know, in case our Michigan accent is so thick you can’t  understand us:

Aunt, Roof, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminum, Envelope

So what do you think?  Do we SOUND like we come from Michigan?  Because we both do.  From the same town.  Born in the same hospital. 8 and a half months apart.
