While picking up a delicious plate of cold sushi yesterday at the best Sushi house in the KC area, Siki in Lee's Summit, Miles said 'hi' to the woman getting our food. 'Oh!', she exclaimed excitedly. 'He can speak now, huh?' I told her 'a bit' as I looked over at Miles wondering where that spontaneous 'hi' had come from. It was always there looming, along with him occassionally saying 'bye' as well. Since he is so gregarious and open in public with saying things and waving, it's beyond words to hear him speaking to people in hello/good-bye. It's when you least suspect it, as I did, that Miles will bust something out and floor you with his ability.
