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"
