Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da

If you haven't seen the viral video of the babbling one-year-old twins yet, enjoy. I know Nate and I didn't babble back and forth so much as babies, but as grown-ups we have this same conversation pretty much all the time.

See, it starts out as the odd giggle, but pretty soon you spiral into the full feedback loop.

Language acquisition is so weird. Lots to love about it.

I don't feel like I know anything about how much we babbled or not as babies, though maybe Mom or Dad said something once that I forgot.

Nothing against the twinship bond, and maybe it's just because I watched this in the middle of my workday, but my first thought is that I've gone whole days at the office where I feel like this was basically the only conversation I had, with the difference that the day I go to work in one sock and a diaper will probably be the day I get fired.

But: babies are cute, and more to the point you're exactly right about language acquisition. My lasting reaction to this is that it makes me want to call in sick tomorrow and just read a bunch of Steven Pinker all day.
