"I want more ice, please"

We have been working for several weeks helping John to string his signs together in sentences. He does this willingly, but always, until yesterday, only with prompting, at least that was the only way for him to get them in the right order. Last night we had dinner at church, and after Mark had left to preach elsewhere John and I were still sitting there visiting and he decided that he wanted more ice than I had. Once he got my attention John signed to me "I want more ice please" with no prompting whatsoever. Again today he was able to do the same thing, once straight and several times with the words not in the proper places in the sentences, but still understandable!
