Maybe! A difficulty is that in Silkhorn's vision of her attacking 
infant Sinew, she seems more like a starving adult than a "little 
girl". RTTW p27: "The inhuma came, a bent and haggard figure that 
was not a woman ... She recalled Jahlee ... a ragged, painfully 
thin figure with famished eyes ..."  It's possible I guess that 
Jahlee at the age of less than two (?) could look like that, but 

The description makes it seem like she's been hungry for a *long* 
time, and really it reminds me of the adult Jahlee, just after 
she's been disinterred in Gaon. 

Anyway, I need to mull over this some more. 

Part of the problem is that Jahlee has every reason to hide or lie 
about things which happened around the time of her attack on Sinew. 
she surely doesn't want Silkhorn to guess the truth (he has, by the 
start of RTTW, but she doesn't know it).
