Last week Israel just suddenly started speaking in sentences. He had been putting 2 and 3 words together for a bit but suddenly he is talking as much as Keira. One day last week I had left the pantry unlocked and Israel was in the pantry getting into snacks. Mike said to him.. " What are you doing? You know you aren't supposed to be in there. Please get out of the pantry!" Israel says " Wait a second.. I getting something!" Mike about died laughing. Its so funny hear this teeny tiny little boy talking so well. 22 months old and talking up a storm. It definitely makes life easier though that he can communicate so well. Less frustration all around. He also is really into "reading." He sits down and flips through the book and says " I reading mama!"
