It’s a common fact that babies are simpler than their adult counterparts. They communicate through sounds and cries as they are not capable of speaking yet. However, despite being in their early stages of development, they are still human beings. Although they cannot respond, parents can rest assured that their babies comprehend what they are saying.
From a young age, babies try to copy the sounds and movements made by their parents. Typically, their initial words consist of basic phrases like “mama,” “dada,” “yes,” or “no.” However, it is unusual and outstanding for a baby to say “I love you” at only 8 weeks old! A charming newborn recently made waves by mimicking her mother’s “I love you” in a heartwarming display of affection.
The charming video features a baby who responds to her mother’s voice by babbling in the sweetest way possible. The little one tries to express her love for her mother in the most adorable way, leaving the mother pleasantly surprised and feeling pampered by her little princess. “I Love You” is a powerful three-word phrase that makes us feel loved, and this innocent expression from a baby is truly delightful. Although science may not have fully understood this early marvel of human infancy yet, we can appreciate and cherish this bundle of cuteness for now.
During the initial year of life, we can clearly observe the growth of infants and how they express their emotions. At three months old, infants can only cry when they feel uneasy, but at eight months old, they can also demonstrate discomfort through facial expressions. A study conducted by the University of Georgia revealed that infants can effortlessly learn emotional regulation throughout infancy. Parents can teach their children to manage their emotions from a young age by providing continuous guidance and instruction.
As a mother, it’s always a joy to witness every milestone of my child’s growth and development. Whether it’s the first time they hold their bottle or take their first step, each moment is significant and worthy of celebration. However, it’s important to note that even before they can perform these actions, we already talk to them. Studies have shown that infants can already understand words as early as six months old.
