The following Edward-facts are true at this point: He loves his cousin David and sometimes calls David's name even in his sleep. His worst nightmare seems to be dreaming that David does not share a toy with him. David is only 5 himself and is really good at sharing, but I try to not have unreasonable expectations.
Edward speaks fluently in Romanian, and also speaks some English. He responds in English if he is spoken to in English. He says most words correctly, but every once in a while refers to "biloza" instead of "buldozer", "papac" instead of "capac", "pingea", etc. He still refers to himself as "tu/you".
He has been diaper-free since April 2012, and we have had very few accidents since then.
We live close to the lake in Fallanden and so Edward loves playing in water, and trying to swim. He still needs to be pushed along to advance in water, but I am glad he accepts the water and that my mother and I can swim around him vs. sit on the shore.

Edward is learning to roller-blade and rides a bike without pedals. Another thing he loves is having us draw animals, insects, and planes and cars for him. His favorite animal is the cat - both drawn and in real life. He is starting to be able to draw himself also and his drawings do make sense - although at the end he adds a number of random lines to them.
