... ... who is largely nonverbal, but once in a blue moon comes out with a word or two (usually profanity), said my name yesterday. I wasn't even sure if he knew my name. I know he knows who I am, but I didn't know if he thought in terms of names.
Yesterday he said, and I quote, "Dooley! Shut up!"
You know what? I'll take it. He used his words to express his wants and needs. We can work on manners later!
