Ahhh, babies. Great, aren't they? Especially when they're doing super-cute stuff like this, and not screaming for no reason at 3am.

Almost 50 million people (at time of writing) have watched a clip of one sprog and his dad having a 'conversation' after it was uploaded to Twitter just two days ago.

The youngster, whose name is Kingston, may not make much sense, but has clearly been watching his parents and other people chatting. He knows all the changes in expression and correct cues necessary for a conversation between two people.

In fairness to the dad he keeps it going in a pretty hilarious way. The whole thing is just so damned pure.

Very cute indeed. Surely only a matter of time before Ellen pounces?
