My newest nickname for Lazarus is LAZILLA. Lately, Elijah has been really into trains. He sets up the entire track, connects all the trains and then invites us to play. Poor Eli, he just wants someone to follow the rules and play the game. His brother, on the other hand, wants to shriek and scream while crawling all over the track and eating the trains. It's hilarious but also frustrating for Eli. I have to be very careful to validate Elijah's feelings even though it's the funniest thing I've seen a baby do.
Sometimes they play together nicely. It only lasts about 3 minutes, but it happens. It's amazing to me how two completely different people can have the same parents.
