Talking Babies

posted by Jennifer E. Jones

Since you loved the “Laughing Babies” so much, I just had to share with you these two talking twins.

What do you think they’re talking about? I’m guessing one is concerned where his sock went and the other is trying to help him find it.

Have seen this~ on Facebook, my baby sister posted it.
I told her twins have their “own language that only they
seem to understand~ the rest of us are left out of their
world/loop”! It’s an adorable clip!
these two little boys look like their about almost
two years old! they’re going to be little charmers!.

How I remember so well and many moons ago, but they do develop a language only they understand. Most of this conversation was that missing sock. Loved it. Brought back pleasant memories.

I truly love and appreciate this video. It made my day when I watch it this morning on the Today Show when I was getting ready for work. After watching this video is appears that the other twin has his brother’s sock bcs it matches the missing brother’s sock. I think the twin who has both socks on is trying to justify that the sock is his, but the other brother is playfully disagreeing. They’re adorable and hats off to mom and dad.

I thoroughly enjoyed this video. These boys’ parents have caught such a precious memory on video! I cried – my identical twin girlfriends (now 51) have always been so close that it’s tearing me up inside as they haven’t spoken to each other for the past couple years. I have only one daughter and feel bad that she will not have that kind of close sibling relationship that these two boys have. Any linguists out there that can give some insight? :)

I think it’s representative of today’s society where the one without the sock expects the other to give him one of his, no questions asked. The one with socks is willing to help him find his, but in no way is willing to give his up. He feels he has taken better care of his socks than his twin so he should KEEP them, but will offer a helping hand. LOL

1 sock twin,”Have you seen my other sock?”
2 sock twin, “No, but the one you have one, looks like one of mines.”
1 sock twin,”My sentiments exactly!” Give me that sock! Its mines!”
2 sock twin,”No my brother. What’s yours is mines and what’s mine is mine!’
1 sock twin,” I believe you got that wrong, so hand over the sock!”
2 sock twin, “So now you want me roving the kitchen in one sock. It is not going to happen!”
1 sock twin, “Just you wait. One day I will have the upper sock!”

My take on this has to do with the key words “dada” “up” and hand waving etc. I think that maybe Dada put their sock in the freezer. They want to open the freezer to get get. There is alot of hand waving, “No don’t get in there”. “Sock is gone bye-bye and Daddy did it.”

It is simple you merely give a little shove here and kick there and punch here and the whole world will fall into shape and we can get rid of all this nasty nonsense of war and live in peace with one another as we do! Says the more aggressive twin with both his socks on cause he has it all together. Brother on other hand is saying are you sure that will work? Right now I just want to find my other sock cause my toes are cold. I guess if you say so but I am not sure seems they kinda tried that all before and they still cannot talk it all out like we do so it good for everyone.

I enjoyed this cute baby video as did my sister and mom. I sent it to people I know. It was a good way to start the day with a good laugh wondering what they are talking about. You can only wonder, but, as always, they have their own language all their own. I don’t have twins, but, they always try to put their two cents in even with you and you just have to agree with them, I love the baby videos, such as the one Baby at Church one a few months ago. Reminds me of my daughter now 25 and getting married next month. Her has was that blonde when she was younger and still is.

I believe the twin with his back to camera is the more dominate and the other twin more passive. The dominate one definitely has on the passive ones sock, because he has lost his, but wanting to keep two socks for his two feet is trying to convince and maybe even bully a little the passive one. The passive one knows the other has his sock and lets him know he has it in a very nice passive way. There is no fear of each other between the two of them, but the dominate one is a convincer and the passive one accepts with humor, but still discusses his sock is on the wrong babys foot. The baby with one sock would rather give in than persue with pressure while the dominate baby steps forward a few times in a friendly aggressive stance, even stiffening once because the other is laughing. The dominate one even looks at the holder of the camera to ask them to join his convincing act, so that he can keep the sock. This is just the personality of each and will probably continue between them as they grow.

Did I get a hint that they were discussing the radioactive milk now in the US. Think they both agreed that they are not going to drink it at all, at all, at all. Actually wanted to climb into the fridge to throw it out….

The twin in the corner never lets go of the handle on the freezer. I think he crawled over there and pulled himself up. His brother is enticing him to let go and walk, or even run, saying, “Think of the the havoc we could create in a team.” He laughs, explains he doesn’t have the proper footwear, he needs socks and shoes. The free standing brother keeps telling him, ” Just “do it. I only have on socks!” Then turns around faces the camera, aka mom or dad, and says, “Tell him to do it. Walk.”

They are guys – it’s NOT about what they are wearing… they are little BOYS!!! The “older”, more verbal twin is trying to convince the smaller twin to clmb on his back (he bends down a lot) so he can give his brother a boost on top of that bar on lower level of fridge. They are discussing who should go first. The smaller/laughing twin thinks his “older” twin brother’s (I guarantee the bigger, more verbal one was the first one out) idea is a bit whacky and ambitious but he’s willing to give it a try. Watch their hands as they discuss the feasibility. Watch their legs at beginning and end- they are both trying to lift them to see if they can scale the fridge. Or get under it or just explore it- if “it’s a boy” -that’s what he’s interested in. Boys could not care less what they are wearing – or not wearing – til they are at least about 10 — or older!!!! Socks -what socks – it’s all about the adventure- even if the form of fridge and the challenge it presents!!! But come on-none of us really know what they are talking about – for all we know they are just hungry and hanging around the fridge in hopes of getting a snack!!! Peace!!!

All of human relationships are here. Communication skills, speaking a language someone else will understand. Deep bonding with someone else. Persisting in the effort to understand and be understood. Turning to ask someone else to help. I have twin grandsons (aged 5) and I see the same wonderful bond and trust and need for each other in them. Thank you Lord for twins and their mums and dads.

Great video. Reminded me of our twin girls who are now 23. They carried on similar conversations as infants and toddlers, though not quite as freely as these two boys. We didn’t understand much, but early on did we figure out they had both re-named their older brother and called him “Didda”, since they could not say his real name, “Christopher.”

I think Mary is on the right track.
My take on this “conversation” is;
They want a snack or some milk and
the twin with his back to the counter is wanting to
climb up to the fridge to get it himself.
The other twin is telling him that he can’t
even try because he will get in trouble, thats why they look at the
camera, looking for mom to say something, and the twin with his back to the counter just laughs.
Then since mom isn’t doing anything they continue
“discussing” the fact that even though mom doesn’t look like she is going to say any thing, the fact still remains that he isn’t big enough! Latter in the “conversation” the twin with his back to the camera bends over and stretches his hands over his head
as to say “you have to grow this much,
before you can get up there” and the other twin
looks at his brother in disbelief and just start trying to climb up
there any way!
I love it!!

They are solving the never-ending problem of washing machines eating socks. Their “da-da” complains about the number of socks he has to buy… they are the future designers of this machine. As an idea is put forward, the brother waves it down as, “no, that won’t work” and another idea is discussed. Their “code” means that this patent will be their secret until 20+ years in the future.All the best boys!

This is awsome. By the tones of their voices there are obviously questions being asked and statements being made. These little boys, as all children are, are a precious gift from God.
