Fancy baby talk

Last night as I was leaving from my brother's and sister-in-law's home, I waved good bye to my one-year old nephew: "Feygo" (Greek for "I'm leaving").
And that adorable lump of little man reciprocated with enthusiastic waving and what sounded a lot like "Feygeis?" (Leaving?)

My sister-in-law and I stopped dead in our tracks and locked disbelieving stares, "Didja hear what I heard?"
So far, he says "papa", "mmmmmm" instead of mama (breaking my sister-in-law's heart), and a lot of incoherent baby talk with a side dish of baby drool.

Is it possible MY nephew is already conjugating verbs in question form?
