She is the same age as him, in fact she is 5 days older, but we won't tell him!
Now when these 2 get together they are like twins.
Alex is a different person with her. He goes all soft and docile.
They play together so well and as Alex has just learnt a lot of imaginative play from Ben, then he can keep himself and Eleanor amused for hours.As you can see in the picture they were filthy from having been playing for hours while Richard (aka Eleanor's dad) sorted out our tv, but they had had a blast along the way.
