I think it's finally working. My friends adorable little boy is only a few months older than Eden and I have this romantic view of them being life long friends and being really close etc etc etc.. but Eden has never been amused with him at all. It's a shame because he is such a sociable little thing and when he has wanted to play with her previously she has just cried or ran away from him; so I was so happy that we hit a turning point and she was really interested in him. They even exchanged a few kisses and posed together for a few pictures (none of which are good mobile pics but I like the out takes just the same).
Next, we will work on "sharing".
