7 Week Old Baby Says Hello to His Mom

Babies don't normally start talking till around the time of their first birthday. But one mother in Northern Ireland captured video of her infant son making a pretty good attempt at the age of just 7 weeks.

But since his moment of glory was captured on video, little Cillian has not managed to repeat it. "He hasn't said anything since but you can tell when he's trying," McCann told the paper. "When he flicks his tongue in a certain way, you know he wants to say something."

Skeptics may note that babies cooing and making various sounds with their mouth and tongue is a normal part of early development and just the first step toward actual language use.
