11-week-old baby girl speaks for the first time

Wait until you see how adorable she is as she says her own name. Her name is Eela, and she accomplished this remarkable feat at the tender age of eleven weeks.

As they discover the wonders of speech, newborns love to chatter away at breakneck speed, making all kinds of sounds. Parents must try to understand what their children are saying, making sense of words that are frequently gibberish.

Little Eela is eleven weeks old and already capable of a precocious feat: saying her own name. Her adoring mother captured the priceless moment on video, which Internet users all over the world can view.

This achievement is remarkable not only because Eela is so young, but also because an infant’s first words are usually “mommy” or “daddy.” So Eela is not only extremely intelligent for a baby, but she is also a rebel.

Although babies as young as seven weeks old can begin making sounds, the majority of these utterances are proto-speech, or sounds that are close to but not quite words. These include phrases like “da-da” and “ba-ba.”

I hope mom shows the video to Eela when she’s older so she can see how adorably intelligent she was at such a young age.
