“Did you understand it, though?” Pryor asks.
“No,” Kingston says.
The baby asks another question, and then Pryor replies.
“Oh no, no, not this one. This is the grand finale of this one,” he says.
Kingston babbles something that sounds like “this is the last one.”
“Yeah, that’s the last one,” Pryor agrees.
A little bit later, Kingston garbles something and his dad responds as naturally as can be.
“That’s exactly what I was thinking! ... We think a lot alike.”
And Kingston the chat with “bye, bye, bye.”

"He is very animated," Pryor, 30, told TODAY Parents . "He takes after me."When Pryor is home in Clarksville, Tennessee, Kingston follows him around the house and does everything his father does.

Read books together every day. Get started when he's a newborn; babies love listening to the sound of their parents' voices. Cuddling up with your child and a book is a great bonding experience that will set him up for a lifetime of reading.

Dad chats with baby son about TV show in adorable video
The response has been overwhelmingly positive. When someone posted the video on Twitter there was a rare moment of social media harmony when everyone loved it.
“When the baby shook his head ... that’s when I knew they were in fact having a legit conversation,” one Twitter user wrote.
Another said:“This is the BEST baby. All other babies are cancelled.”
While someone noted that the two are watching commercials, most agreed that they admired the dad for encouraging his son to speak and for having a fun, open dialogue.
Teach your baby to sign. Just because a child can't talk doesn't mean there isn't lots that she'd like to say. Simple signs can help you know what she needs and even how she feels well before she has the words to tell you - a great way to reduce frustration.
“That’s right,” a Facebook user shared, “start the conversation bonding early.”
Another wrote: “That baby boy is gonna be as cute with as much personality as his sweet daddy. Precious!”
Pryor said he and Kingston chat so often that sometimes he forgets Kingston is a toddler.
"He doesn’t see himself as a baby. I don’t see him as a baby," he said.
While Pryor isn't surprised everyone loves Kingston, he feels a little pressure thanks to his gregarious son.
