What Would An Alpha Male Say?

We're starting to turn The Boy on to self-feeding, I mean he sticks everything else in his mouth (sand, toys, dirt, grass or worse) so why not food? He's getting pretty good at it, sometimes he prefers to just squish the food in his hands, but most of the time it makes it into his mouth. Bananas, cheese, carrot bits, Cheerios, he eats them all. A particular favourite of his are these rice cracker sticks called "Baby Mum Mum". Whether it's a whole piece or bits and bites, he picks up them up and chews away merrily.

It's great to see that he's starting to understand the concept of feeding himself. My problem is, no matter how I try, it's impossible to utter the phrase "Baby Mum Mum" in any way that sounds even remotely masculine.
