Otto quip

So Otto speaks very well, but not always very clearly. When he's not pronouncing something quite right, often he'll correct himself if I make him look at my mouth while I say the word. We were working on colors the other day. Here's a reproduction of the conversation:

Me: Otto, what color is a polar bear?
Otto: Whipe!
Me: Good! White! Look at Mommy. White!
Otto: Whipe!
Me: Look at Mommy. Wh-iii-Tuh. Wh-iii-TUH. TUH. Tuh. White!
Otto: [Thinks for a second.]
Me: Whi-tuh!
Otto: Whipe-TUH!
