Silas has no interest in talking. He understands and does everything we ask, but he has absolutely no reason to use words. He literally can say please which comes out like this eeeeezzzze and he can say hot. He’s working on up which is “uh” and he loves to sign all done. My favorite non-word that he says is “uh huh” – that’s his yes. Tracy tells me that he will talk when he’s ready, not to rush it.
