A Barrow County boy critically injured when a tree limb fell on him continues to make progress in his recovery.

Monday morning, Tripp Halstead’s mom posted on their Facebook page that Tripp spoke when she asked him a question about the TV.

“I literally cried and kissed his face off the first time he did it,” Stacy posted on Tripp Halstead Updates.

Stacy said it’s the second time in two days she’s heard him speak.
