You see, since he knows all the letters and the sounds he will say the first letter of a word. Or he will copy a sound that sounds similar. He says "what is that" But it isn't REALLY "what is that" it is "wazat" meaning to him that is what it sounds like so he asks us wazat and we say oh what is that... and proceed to tell him.

The list goes on.... But the funny thing. Most of the things that come out of his mouth are only letters and sounds that make up words because we know what he is saying. He is quiet when he talks and sometimes he breathes out instead of in.
But the best part of life....
