Every parent knows that there's a very specific difference between a baby making noises ("goo-goo ga-ga"), and a baby "talking." Now, when I say "talking" here, I don't mean actual words coming out of your child's mouth, I mean it's still a bunch of nonsensical gibberish, but it totally sounds like, well, a legitimate language. It has something to do with the cadence, and the sounds, and the general expression of determination and concern on a little one's face. And the baby in this here video? She's 110 percent "talking." In fact, she sounds like she has a Southern accent -- which is actually perfect, because I can't imagine this child won't be an auctioneer.
What is this girl saying here? Personally, I have no clue. But I'm sure her parents have an idea -- a very vague and general idea.
It's funny how once babies start talking, or "talking", pretty much only Mom and Dad know what they're saying. I was always amazed at how after I said "what?" to small children more than once at something that sounded like "bwaaggggraathooo", a mom would say, "She wants to know if you like her teddybear."
My daughter isn't talking yet. A few words here and there: "Mama"; "Dada"; I thought I heard a "pup" the other day. But still, I have a general idea as to what she's saying when other people haven't the faintest clue. It's cute, and now I get how other moms were able to decode their child's language.
And with that said, I would love to know what this little girl is saying here. These parents have their work cut out for them.
Were you able to understand your baby's "talking"?
