While this is not particularly shocking to me as a non-parent and additionally inexperienced babysitter/holder/coddler, the rest of the world is, apparently, finding this quite amusing.
Cillian McCann, a newborn Irish baby, repeated back ‘hello’ to his mother after several visibly trying attempts to form the word. According to Science, word formation doesn’t generally happen until around the 18th month or thereabouts, putting this baby roughly 16 months ahead of schedule.
Now, join the millions of other onlookers in watching this miniature human say something we’ve all heard a billion times:
“Dammit, baby, say it when I walk IN, not when I’m leaving.”
Next on the baby’s To-Do list are 1) taking solid poos, and 2) prank calling his parents. Walking and getting into Oxford should follow shortly thereafter.
