It seems to me that it took Harry an awful long time to be affirmative; that is, he said he didn't like things fairly regularly, but took a long time to say what he liked. He said "no" long before saying "yes." Jeremy has become quite demonstrative about shaking his head side to side for "no," but, the agreeable boy that he is, has just as quickly learned up and down means "yes." He seems to do both with a big smile, taking apparent pride in the fact that he is communicating, albeit not verbally. Of course, most of these demonstrations of overt desire center around food, so perhaps it's no surprise that chunky Jeremy is more positive than finicky Harry.
