Friends / Freunde

A collaborated Lego project.  Left is the Ewoks home (Star Wars - boys) and on the right is where the Lego Friend lives (Lego Friends - girl).  There was much peace during the construction of this project.  :-)

These days Nathan and Abigail play great with each other more often than not.  This has been a longer road.  Nathan ignored Abigail mostly until she was about 18 months old.  When he could understand what she was saying and she was able to walk, they started to play (And yes, Abigail spoke in short sentences by 18 months old. This will not shock you if you know her.I).  Often times they had to figure out how to make this boy/girl thing work.  While Abigail wanted to sit and play girly things, Nathan has always been very physical and wants to just run and jump and wrestle; much to the dismay of his little sister who despises being wrestled.  Although at times she just wants to play with him so badly, she even tries her hand at wrestling.  Lately though, when they have time to play with each other, they seem to always manage to find some common ground that allows them to play with each other for hours. They have become very good friends.

Nathan und Abigail spielen in der letzten Zeit sehr viel miteinander.  Nathan ignorierte Abigail bis sie ungefaehr 18 Monate alt war.  Dann konnte er sie verstehen und sie konnte laufen.  (Und ja, Abigail sprach mit 18 Monaten kleine Saetze. Wenn Du Abby kennst, dann ist das fuer dich nich ueberraschend).  Meistens mussten sie aber darueber streiten, ob sie etwas maedchenhaftes oder etwas wildes spielen sollten.  Abigail will gerne sitzen und malen oder halt so etwas machen waehrend Nathan lieber wild herum laeuft und mit seiner Schwester kaempft, was sie hasst.  Aber in der letzten Zeit, verstehen sich die beiden gut.  Und sie haben gelernt Kompromiss zu machen wenn es zum spielen kommt.
