Today we walked around town for the first time without Andres’ pram. I knew it would be a big risk, because if he didn’t want to walk anymore in the middle of town, it would be a toughie to carry him all the way back home.
So we walked to the tram station and hopped onto the tram. I put him on the windows seat, and he was pretty engrossed watching all that was happening. At the fifth stop we hopped off (Platte) and walked back all the way to ETH. After returning books at the library, we walked all the way to town, which involved lots and lots of stairs going down and quite a bit of level walking. He made it all the way to the Limmat, when he started getting restless and I carried him perhaps 100 meters and then he would start walking again. So we went all the way to the Nespresso shop, and then back to Bahnhofstrasse to catch the tram. I did have to carry him quite a bit in town, but I was amazed how far he made it.
Yesterday I asked him who was that in the mirror and he said “Adi” (andres). He also pointed to me and said “Dädi”. On a photograph we discovered while I was cleaning up he pointed to “Mami” and “Adi”. He points at cars saying “Auto” and to children saying “Be-bee”.
I can ask him where is his nose and he’ll point it out to me. Same goes for eyes, mouth, hair, hands, feet, navel, ears…! If I ask him where is MY nose, he’ll point to mine!! And he does same for all the other body parts. Really amazing!
I was looking for the cordless telephone handset today and muttered “where’s the telephone” when it took just moments and he brought it to me. Today the telephone rang and I was in the other room – he picked up the handset and brought it to me… It goes on and on.
