Grandpa and baby make mom laugh with adorable “scheme”

July 22nd, 2020

As a grandparent, you get all the perks with none of the responsibilities. You’ve already done your part as a parent, now you can sit back and watch your kids struggle with some of the same problems you’ve had while raising them. If you’re like this grandpa, you’re already teaching your grandaughter how to “plot and scheme” in hysterical baby-talk.

She really understands what he’s saying!

Joeli was just a baby when she went viral for having a full-on conversation with her grandpa Steve in baby jibberish

Back in 2014, Joeli was just beginning to find her voice when she went to a restaurant with her grandpa Steve. While sitting in the booth, the grandpa started having a funny conversation with his granddaughter that was all caught on video.

As soon as she hears her grandpa’s voice, Joeli’s ears perk up and she responds with some precious grunts that are typical of babies. The topic of the conversation is funny, but the baby’s ability to respond is the best part.

“Well no, I don’t think so…’cause you just never know when it could go down. And then what happens then? Right?” Grandpa Steve says.

The topic of the conversation sounds like Joeli and her grandpa are already up to some mischieve

Joeli’s mother, Melissa, who posted the video to Youtube, spilled the beans on what her daughter and father were plotting in video’s caption.

Grandpa Steves continues to iron out their plans:

Well, okay, then let’s do it. Okay, okay, we’re gonna do it. You want to?

Joeli is so intrigued by the words coming out of her grandpa’s mouth, she stares at him in a trance every time he speaks. Every time he takes a break from talking, the infant responds by attempting to string some words together herself.

According to Parents.com, babbling is an important part of a child’s growth.

“Babbling is an important milestone because it represents the beginning of real communication when a baby starts experimenting with sounds, listening for a reaction, responding, and building social relationships,” says Sherry Artemenko, who is a speech-language pathologist and founder of Play on Words.

Joeli gets in some final words in baby-talk before the video ends

She lets out one last flurry of adorable baby babbles as the video comes to a close. Mellisa had no idea the video would blow up when she posted it to YouTube, but it certainly took on a life of its own. She continues to post funny videos of Joeli, but none have gone viral like the one with grandpa Steve.
