How do you decide if they’re talking?

Last night at the dinner table Monkey finished eating and then started his “I’m all done” ritual. He handed me some food from his plate, then his cup and finally picked up his plate to hand to me. Duhdee was already up so he said to Monkey, “Daddy will take your plate.” Monkey turned and said “Nuh Mama” as he handed the plate to me! It was like he was trying to say “No, mama.”

Is that really him talking? It was totally appropriate to the situation and to his actions. Do we get to count it? The other day he said “Ba” while he was holding a ball…does that count? Or does he need to repeat it??
