Baby Talk

Posted: February 26, 2007 in Uncategorized

In church yesterday, a baby started jabbering.  And then another.  And another.  And that made me wonder.

Did you ever notice that they seem to be having a conversation?  Sometimes, they even get into arguments and all start wailing at the same time.  But how are they communicating?  That’s what I want to know.

Next time you hear babies chattering in a silent crown, pay attention to the pattern.  Not the words, but the tone of the sounds they make, as well as the interplay between them.  It sounds exactly like a conversation in a foreign language you don’t understand.

Then I started wondering what the babies were talking about.

“Yo, Frankieeee.  You teething now?”

“You bet, Joshua!  Got me a Mickey Mouse with spiky-covered hands and feet.  You should try one.”

“Hey, you two!   You hear about that astronaut with the diaper?  That was sooooo funny.”

“Sure did, Melissa.   I messed my Huggies when I heard about it.”

“Catch you two boys later, okay?  Mom thinks I’m hung–MMMPH!”

Perhaps it’s better if I don’t know….
