Non-verbal communication?

Well, non-language, at any rate!

Our oldest girl did that, when young: long conversations in baby-babble, with hand gestures & facial expressions. We always responded seriously ... and then ROFL'd when alone. :)

I had already watched that at least a dozen times and had to watch it one more time when you posted it. That is hilarious. The guy reminds me of Seinfeld.

My oldest child "talked" all the time, trying to get his way or get what he wanted. He even held long conversations with my mother when he was not trying to get his way, just conversations. No one knew a word he was saying. By the time he was 18 months old, he could actually speak words that others understood and long sentences. He made a mighty leap from 14 to 18 months. I think the "practice conversations" helped.

Yup,. that's definitely a conversation, even if there are no words yet. The kid's vocabulary will probably explode into existence very soon.
