For a period of time between about 7 months to 9 months Sophia had strong stranger anxiety. Nobody is allowed to touch her or in cases of people she decided were dangerous (usually overly friendly males) they are not even allowed near her. But she’s really growing out of it. Last weekend she made a new friend all on her own. She saw this baby who was just a month older than her and shouted out to that baby. She then proceeded to walk down the row of seats to the baby and started playing with her (ie touching her hands and making a lot of baby noises). A good start I must say.
When I brought her to a playgym trial the teacher even said she’s very friendly! Yay, success!
