Most infants utter their first words within the first 12 to 18 months, and in the ensuing months, start mimicking words and sentences in what we all know and love as “baby talk.” And that’s exactly what the adorable little girl in the video below does, swaddled in a cream-colored blanket and lightly clutching her mommy’s top while gazing intently at the camera with her big blue eyes.
Little Gemma Kate was just 15 months at the time her dad, Dennis, captured this too-sweet mother-daughter moment. He posted it on YouTube in September of 2015, and it’s since been viewed over 5.6 million times. (I’m guessing many of those hits are from single users; it’s kinda like trying to eat one Dorito, you just can’t do it.)
“I love yoooooooou!” Michelle Neely melodically croons.
Gemma blinks in silence a couple times, then parrots back the words as only a 15-month-old can: “(Unintelligible) ooooooooooooooooo!”
The :43-second clip is made all the more adorable when she proudly flashes her two pearly whites at around :06!
The video has been circulating for nearly two years, but viewers still love it and continue commenting:
Watch the cuteness in the video below, and share to spread smiles!
