Default "Chirping" noise?

My boy will make this little chirping noise (almost sounds like a baby bird, just not very loud) sometimes when me and him are spending time together. He seems to make the noise the most when he is busy crawling up my shirt to chew on my hair But anyways, what is this little noise? Is it a sign of anything, or is it just normal chatter?

Ditto. Isn't it a great noise? And a great feeling...knowing your little one is happy and content.

Males will also make that sound much louder and pronounced when "singing" to a female.

That one sounds more like cry to me rather than a happy chirp. My boys "chirp" much softer that than. But I do have to say the video is TOOOOOO CUTE and I want him!

Is it normal for him to be wobbling that much though?
