Making Friends

Saturday, October 02, 2010

11-1/2 months, and she's becoming adept at making friends. After many months of just taking turns stealing toys from other babies, our baby is really starting to play with other babies. She loves to play crawl chase or "follow me". She and her friend crawl all over the place together, laughing and exploring the turf.

Today, I met a family in the lobby of a restaurant. They had a baby girl almost the same age as ours. They instantly bonded and stood together laughing, playing , and even giving kisses. I almost didn't want to go home because it seemed they were having so much fun together.

Baby has also become more playful with adults, mostly men. She brings them her toys, laughs, crawls on them, and acts cute and coy. Oddly, though, whenever we go to Story Time at the library, she has a little bit of separation anxiety. It could be because of the sheer mass of people in the room. It's easy to lose sight of Mommy. But for most people, it takes her a few minutes to warm up to a person, and then she is her friendly, playful self.

On a side note, Baby took a few more steps on her own today. It seems like she has to be in the mood for walking. But as she was standing up, I coaxed her to walk toward me, and she wobbled over to me slowly, but proudly, in her coy little way. It's exciting to watch these milestones. But people always say that with more mobility comes more danger. It's a work in progress, though. Keeps me on my toes.
