Yoav seems to be more and more seeing Elie as a person/friend. Today Yoav did something to Elie that he thought Elie would like and Elie cried and Yoav moved and said "Sorry" to Elie. I think it was the first time I've ever heard Yoav say sorry to anyone.
Also, Yoav taped (with lots and lots of tape) a paper snowflake he made to the floor for Elie. I think his thinking was that Elie likes to play with paper but I don't want Elie to eat paper, so this was a way for Elie to see and touch the paper without being able to eat it.
Tonight I tried to get the kids to sleep without walking to sleep, but I failed. I swear everytime Elie started to close his eyes to fall asleep, Yoav would poke his head in and say something like, "Are you falling Elie asleep?", "Is he asleep yet?" or he'd just open the door to peek in and then slam it closed. AAAHHHHH!!!!!!!! Finally (after about an hour), Yoav came in and said he was ready to go on a walk to go to sleep - he said he already peed and drank some Kombucha. Wow! So we just did that. There was snow on the ground but I managed to push the stroller through all the thick patches and the snow kept me walking really slow which helps.
