Prepare for a cuteness overload! As reported by the Daily Mail, when mom Toni McCann was saying “hello” to her seven-week-old son, Cillian, and trying to get him to respond, to her (and our) utter amazement, he actually replied! And it wasn’t with gurgling or cooing or higgledy-piggledy goo-goo gaga, but with a wee “allo” (hey, H’s are hard, people).
OK, OK, we know babies typically begin having “conversations” (albeit in baby babble) at 2½ to 4 months, but they are learning about language long before that. And it sure is fun to watch this newborn make his wee baby sounds.
