I guess I always thought that Xander just wasn’t interested in playing that much with Izzy but now I’m starting to think that he didn’t know HOW to play. I’ve had him for a year now (he’s 4 1/2) and he just recently started to do the play bow. His daycare actually told me that they saw him do it and it about made me cry- I had never seen him do it! But now I’ve seen him do it a handful of times and I love it!
He’s learned that when Izzy jumps on him, she just wants to wrestle and play with him. He used to get defensive and fight her but now he lets her gnaw on him and he enjoys it!
