When a couple has a new baby, it’s as if every single day of their life becomes a new adventure. From the moment the baby arrives, the couple stares down at their new bundle of joy in awe. And then there are all those firsts that start highlighting their days from the very moment they leave the hospital. A sense of relief fills them when their baby cries for the first time and then there is the first time that the baby falls asleep in their arms. Again, they look down in awe at the life that they created. A first smile is one of those other moments that can easily lead a new mother to tears and a spread a proud smile across a new father’s lips.
And then, there is that first sign of verbal communication. Parents are very proud the first time their baby speaks, and they happily check off another accomplished milestone. And then, when the baby becomes a tornado of a toddler, those same parents sometimes long for the days when their baby was still a baby, when he/she was quiet and spent a lot of time sleeping. Typically a child starts to mimic their parents words at around 18 months, but every now and then, you get a baby who proves that they were born to talk.
One proud mom, captured her two-month old’s first “hello,” on film and she has shared it it on social media, showing the world that you are never too young to have a good chat.
In the video, Michigan mom, Samantha Jones is heard speaking to her two-month old son, Christian. In the midst of her sharing some baby babble with the boy, she says “Can you say hello to Amber?” Seconds later, baby Christian says a very coherent “Hello,” back at his mama. The video was initially created to send a quick hello to her friend Amber, but Jone’s didn’t think that the baby was actually going to respond as quickly as he did.
Jones admits that she gasped at the sound of her son’s clear word. “I really couldn’t believe it,” said Jones.
It will be interesting to see if Jones can get baby Christian to say hello again, and if maybe she will work on expanding his vocabulary at the young age.
Viewers of the video are generally amazed by the baby’s advanced vocabulary…
“Haha that little voice!”
“OMG that is amazing!”
“I can’t stop watching this video.”
“OMG the cutest!”
The short video clip has even caused some viewers to crave a baby of their own…
“I want another baby!”
And of course, folks are sharing their own similar stories…
“My baby at 5 months mmm mumbled have a nice day brother oooh! Was so freaky this is adorable!!!”
Some viewers predicted that the video would go viral and the baby would be a young celeb, and that is certainly what has happened, as the boy’s video has thousands of views and shares. People love baby videos.
Who knows…maybe baby Christian will be giving lectures at age five?
