He enjoys a good conversation and tells me a lot about what he did each day and reminds me of things we did yesterday or 'last morning' as he likes to say.
But the thing that has really crept up on me over this summer is how much he enjoys seeing his friends and how his interactions with other children are gradually shifting. Yes he still grabs toys and is in his own world a lot of the time (normally playing with his 'special' trains), but I'm also starting to see the glimmer of real genuine friendships and bonds appearing - the magic moments where he has a chat, a joke, invents a game or shares some food with another child.
