Having a baby in the house is quite the event, especially when it’s a newborn! They are loud, messy, sleepy, and vulnerable and you know who’s job it is to take care of all those things? You! Despite all the difficulties associated with a baby, no parent in their right mind would ever regret it.

Inevitably, however, those babies grow up. It’s not fast, but it happens whether you want it to or not. Thankfully, there can even be joy in the process of growing up. Any parent knows how fun it is to track the developmental stages of their kid and keep tabs on how they are growing!

It’s also a source of pride!

“Oh, your baby isn’t gurgling yet? Mine was at 2 months.” While we may not say we take pride in our baby’s milestones, we can’t help but feel it a bit when we hit a new one! Hitting a milestone earlier than anyone else is usually cause for celebration! And hey, what a little parenting competition, right?

Bentley, a four-week-old baby, had recently woken up and his parents decided they wanted some quality baby footage of him. We can’t blame them, he’s adorable! They didn’t expect to capture something amazing on camera, however.

As they film him, his mom starts to make baby noises.

No matter your age, making baby noises and doing “baby talk” is an essential part of the process. Bentley’s mom starts to do just that and the reaction from the baby is amazing!

Remember, Bentley is only one month old!

While she is making noises, Bentley mews and then mimics the exact tone of her voice with his!

It’s absolutely adorable and deserves all the viral attention it got. Currently, it has over 1.5 million views!

When should babies start talking?

Was baby Bentley talking? Probably not – but it sure sounded like he knew what he was doing! WebMD explains what happens at the earliest talking milestone, 3-months:

At 3 months, your baby listens to your voice, watches your face as you talk, and turns toward other voices, sounds, and music that can be heard around the home. Many infants prefer a woman’s voice over a man’s. Many also prefer voices and music they heard while they were still in the womb. By the end of three months, babies begin “cooing” — a happy, gentle, repetitive, sing-song vocalization

It sure looks like Bentley was doing this “cooing” way before he should have been. Maybe he will grow up to do something incredible!

The last stage of talking that WebMD has is the 3-year milestone.

By the time your baby is age 3, their vocabulary expands rapidly, and “make-believe” play spurs an understanding of symbolic and abstract language like “now,” feelings like “sad,” and spatial concepts like “in.”

The crazy thing is that Bentley is now 6-years-old! It’s funny to think about in theory, but BOY do our kids grow up so fast.

Check out all the adorableness in the video below!
