We came across this video of a "10-month-old" saying "that was awkward", which at first everyone thought was cute.  But, then Steve said that the average kid doesn't start speaking in basic sentences (2-3 words) until they are about 2-years-old.  So, now we are thinking that this might be fake.

According to WebMD:

  • After 9 months, babies can understand a few basic words like "no" and "bye-bye."
  • Most babies say a few simple words like "mama" and "dadda" by the end of 12 months.
  • Babies at this age [18 months] say several simple words and can point to people, objects, and body parts you name for them.
  • By age 2, babies string together a few words in short phrases of two to four words, such as "Mommy bye-bye" or "me milk."

So, after that basic timeline of babies learning to talk, this video can only be real if this kid is a talking prodigy.  What do you think, is it fake or real?
