Little Charlotte Wheeler-Osman shocked parents Samantha and Dave when she uttered her first word.
The couple now have high hopes for their third child – who they think is destined to be a wordsmith.
“I literally walked past her one day while she was in her bouncy chair and she said ‘hello’,” said Samantha, 28.
“She says it all the time now – I couldn’t believe it.
“Everyone says ‘hiya’ to her but she is obviously posher.
“She’s my third child – they say they get quicker as they go on but I didn’t think she would be this quick!”
Hubby Dave, 30, heard his tot say the word and immediately grabbed his camera.
After spurring their daughter on with a few more ‘hellos’ she came out with it again and they captured it on video.
“It was quite a shock,” said Dave, a refuse collector.
“Our other two took a lot longer but she just came out with it after six weeks.”
“I think she’ll be a quick learner,” he added.
The couple, who live in Sailsbury, Wilts., have two other children – Gerrard, four, and Alfie, three.
Charlotte – now aged eight weeks – was born on September 24, weighing 6lbs 11oz, at Salisbury District Hospital.
Samantha, a full-time mum, said she wanted to share the video after seeing other baby videos and realising that Charlotte was by far the cleverest.
“She’s definitely going to be a chatty one,” she added.
