In order to encourage Wade to speak in longer sentences, I often have to prompt him. For example, if he says, "Crackers", I'll say, "I........" and then he'll remember and say carefully, "I... want... crackers... please."
But sometimes he forgets what comes after I and then he just fills in with "I.......love.....you!"
And even though that wasn't what he intended to say in the beginning, it still thrills me to my toes every time I hear it!
