They say that Makili and Gabrielle are too young to play "together." I'd say that is definitely not true. They play hide-n-go-seek. They give each other turns and watch each other go down the slide. They draw together. It is pretty amazing how well they get along. They have similar temperaments - both observers, emotionally tuned into other people, both gentle. Makili sees a lot of other children in a given week between the kids I babysit for and the kids at the family resource center where we spend some mid-week time, and I've never seen him get along with any other child so well. It is uncanny and ridiculously cute.
