If you or someone you know has had a baby, you know how quickly little ones can soak up information, especially language. But this adorable Italian infant did more than memorize the words.
One of the stereotypes often foisted onto Italian speakers is that they gesture a lot when they speak. While this is not always true, this little one leaned as far into the stereotype as he could.
As soon as his mom started talking to him, he mimicked her every movement. From the gestures to the wiggle of his head, he was a perfect mirror to his expressive mom.
How his mom did not start cracking up at the very beginning, we do not know. We certainly could not hold back a few giggles when this baby joined the conversation.
But we were not the only ones who enjoyed this playful interaction. The baby had a big smile on his face, too. However, this tiny comedian wiped that smile off his face as soon as his mom began talking again.
It was clear this little one thought this conversation, and the accompanying gestures, were of the utmost importance. This mom could not have asked for a more active audience member.
If you are looking for a video to make your week, this is the one to watch. Watch this adorable baby learn the intricacies of head wiggling and hand gestures in this lovable interaction.
