Our little son Dov is already one year old. He stands up, sometimes leans on the bookshelf’s lower part. He is beginning to walk, and enjoys it. More than anything else, Dov loves to tricycle. He sits on the saddle, starts running, lifts up his feet, and smiles, as the tricycle brings him to some corner of the house. Dov and I love to play hide-and-seek. I hide, crouching behind the armchair, and call his name out loud; he searches all over the room, slowly on his tricycle, till the moment he discovers me. Our eyes meet, we smile. Then I pretend to run after him while he goes as fast as possible on his tricycle; suddenly he turns right and stops, looking up to Abba, me. Our eyes meet again, we laugh.
