Babies are a whole lot of fun. Since they aren’t full-grown people, it’s hilarious to watch them learn to become full-grown people.
Trying to mimic the things they see people do around them.
I can’t imagine how this aunt discovered that her niece can growl. Was she growling and the baby mimicked her? Did the baby overhear the dog and mimicked the dog?
Maybe the baby was just growling on her own and her aunt got her to do it on command?
I have no idea how this adorable video came to be but that doesn’t really matter since it’s truly heartwarming.
Someone decided to hit the record button on a cozy session between auntie and her niece.
The video shows auntie sitting in a chair outside and holding the baby facing toward her in her lap. Someone recording, probably mom, says “Go.”
That’s when auntie lets out a slow rumbling growl at the baby.
The child looks at her intently. As if she’s studying her every move and sound. And I’m pretty sure the baby was because she let out a little roar of her own right after that.
It was a teeny tiny little burp of a noise but she had the facial expression down pat.
She even lunged her mini body forward to get the full effect.
There was a fierceness to this little baby’s roar.
Well, auntie just found this to be hysterical and broke into giggles.
The baby and her auntie went back and forth about two more times which left everyone around them in a fit of laugher.
Still, the baby’s roars weren’t long and grumbly like aunties. They were short little baby roars.
Still, this little baby was determined to learn.
After all, practice makes perfect.
All she had to do was study her aunt and practice what she saw. Then she’d be roaring in no time.
And the more she practiced the fiercer and longer her tiny growls got.
Then she let out one animalistic perfect grumble.
And with that, it was official. She was a roarer. She could roar.
Her aunt was extremely proud and laughed so hard that her face scrunched up.
“You gettin’ mad at me?” she asked the little girl.
It seemed like it because that little baby really let it rip.
It’s the most precious ever.
That’s why it’s been viewed more than 4.4 million times on YouTube.
Apparently, growling babies are a pretty normal thing.
“A growl could be your baby’s first attempts at communication with you. Listen to your baby and have some fun trying to decipher what it is your baby is trying to communicate to you,” SleepyBaby.org writes. “A baby growl comes from his her throat, and while it may not be as common as a baby cry or even babble, it is not unheard of.”
Babies will start growling around 4 to 6 months.
Sometimes the sound will be involuntary, but that’s nothing to be alarmed about!
“Enjoy your growling baby. Babies are precious gifts, and each new thing your baby learns is a present for you to enjoy. Try imitating the growl and see if your baby responds to you,” the website suggests. Get down on their level by laying on the floor for someone on one tummy time or curl up onto a bed bringing your baby close to you just to learn from each other. You may find this is a way for you and your baby to have your secret conversation. You and baby will enjoy these loving moments, and you both will grow closer every day.”
