A five-month-old baby girl who spoke her first word after just five weeks is already able to tell her mother exactly what she thinks of her food.

The girl, born on Valentine's Day in Beijing, has a vocabulary that includes the words "hunger," "cheat," "grandma" and, importantly, "disgusting."

Her very first word, "hunger," was uttered as she was being breastfed on March 20.

The girl may have intelligence higher than other babies at her age, a doctor surnamed Xia said, but more observations are needed to prove her super intelligence.
