Been a while since the blog was updated as we’ve been in a whirl of dance practice, dance recitals, dance competitions, and dance conferences. But that’s an even longer subject that I’ll tackle later.
On the Isaac front we’ve crossed a major threshold–Iz has gone from speaking a single word to entire sentences. It happened one afternoon last week and was almost like a switch was flipped. First he’s barking out words one at a time and then he suddenly starts stringing them together. Neither Sara nor I remember it being this sudden with Besh.
First, Isaac was playing with one of his Sesame Street toys making a plastic Elmo sing. Suddenly he laughs and says, “He’s so funny!” Sara and I were floored and just looked at each other. Then a bit later he was bouncing/rolling a ball around the living room. He picked it up and came into the kitchen.
Me: “Isaac, do you want to have a snack?”
Isaac: “No, I catching ball.”
But he’s still a very young 2 so while the words and sentences are coming in we still have trouble understanding him sometimes. Yesterday I was driving with the boys and Isaac was pointing out the window.
Isaac: “Daddy! Haws! Haws!”
Took me a while.
Me: “Oh, do you see a house, Isaac?”
Isaac: “Yeah! Haws!”
“That’s right! But that’s not our house.”
Isaac paused, looked out the window, then muttered: “I know.”
