I’ve realized that there are some amusing little things A has been doing of late, mostly at the park:
- Trying to understand sharing: She has learnt to give and take. She has also learnt to help herself to other kids toys and play! However, she hasn’t fully gotten that to take a li’ll, you gotta give a li’ll. When she sees other kids playing with her toys, she goes around “collecting” them! I try to teach her to share (“one for her, one for you”) but looks like she hasn’t quite got the hang of it yet 😉 I have to admit it is interesting to watch the kids resolve these things amongst themselves.
- Trying to “socialize”: she loves “talking” to the other kids; squealing, waving, following. When she sees one of her cute little friends, she recognizes them and points. When she sees an older kid, I see her trying to imitate and follow. For a kid who had severe stranger anxiety around her first birthday, it is amazing to watch her take these strides!
Just wanted to record these so that I could look back on them someday in the future and smile 🙂
