Markus at 7 years 1 month to 7 years 4 months (Months 85 - 88)

Markus has now settled well into his new school, has made friends, had some playdates and loves Hort. He plays football with any combination of Hort colleagues, but can also be found reading comics in the book corner! His teachers are happy with his progress and how he is settling in socially. He does his homework unaided and is generally a happy bunny. We've missed some swimming lessons, but will start back up again in a week or two.

He sings pop songs constantly, little snatches that he has picked up from school. He eats like a horse, is always hungry and always needs more food before bed. Finally putting on the weight. We think he's currently growing sideways, before the next growth spurt up. He is getting really good at chess and tactics, and really questions stories and films, trying to pick apart the narrative.

Speaks Swiss German to patrick and school friends, also when he is talking to himself. Some nice new Denglish phrases...

"Mummy, you're breaking my mind" (ie concentration)

Markus "Mummy, I am gummeling"
Me "What is gummeling?"
Markus "You know, gumele (ie rubbing pencil marks out with an eraser) - this is my own sprach"

Months 85, 86

Months 87, 88
