|Baby Jo having a ball! (Bad pun intended)
Raymonde: Oh! And you know, I have a page here
from Jonathan’s baby book and it says here that at 6, 7 months he used to love to play with balls and balloons and a
hockey stick! When he was 1 year old he used to love that! And what else? What did I write? Let me read in French. (She reads aloud from the book to herself
in French, then begins to translate.) Yes!
A little ping-pong ball that he used to keep in his hand when he was 1 year old.
Also, everything that he could turn. Everywhere there was a button (dial)
he would turn it. Television button, radio button, the wheels of the stroller. He used to turn the stroller upside-down and turn the wheels and say “brrrrmmmmm,
brrrrmmmmm, brrrrmmmmm.” (She giggles to herself about this memory.) Also, he had a truck that he could sit on when he was a baby, when he was about 1
year old, and he loved the steering wheel because it was just like in a real car. He
used to just LOVE to play with that.
