Our charmer continues to delight us! He is speaking a few more intelligble words in both english and swiss german, but communication tends to be body language and guessing at his babbling. His favourite trick is to say "Mummy, come come" and then drag me to kitchen and point to whatever he wants. Very endearing, if a little wearing when it continues all day!

He is getting better at taking off shoes, hat, coat etc, less keen on putting them on. He comes over for hugs and when he goes to bed liberally blows kisses to the family. We watch some Cbeebies (BBC Childrens program) with him in the evening before supper and he (and Alan) often do "yoga" together!

He also got a glowing report from Kinderkrippe - they do yearly dicussions with Parents. He's a very social kid, gets on with everyone, amuses everyone and eats well.

Also really getting into music and using the percussion instruments Aunt Kate gave him, plus is a dab hand at using the CD player. Definitely has his favourite books to "read" at night and goes straight off to sleep like a trooper. More importantly, still has a good midday nap, from 1 hour to 2.5 hours depending!

Next challenge? Weaning him off his dummy, or "iggi" (Nuggi, swiss german) as he calls it.

I'm not sure what your plans are for dummy weaning off but in my family it's focussed on Christmas or Easter, so that the final giving up is based on Santa or the Easter Bunny taking the dummy away and replacing it with a gift.

that's an excellent idea, thanks!
