More words that Jacob has been using spontaneously...

tee - teeth
pay - paste
doht - cold
daah - car
poohn - spoon
bow - bowl
tiht - sit
buuh - book
tair - stairs


The first question I asked when Dr. B told us two years ago that Jacob had a stroke was "Will he be able to talk to us?"

Afterwards, of course, we learned that there are many ways to communicate apart from the spoken word. Jacob has always been able to "talk to us" with gestures, signs, and sounds.

But to hear his voice, to hear him speak. Words. He will control his own world some day.
