Toddler Friendships

Theo’s past friendships have mostly involved close-proximity independent play, with occasional forays into grabbing toys out of one another’s hands. Honestly, when you’re a toddler, adults are generally more useful and accommodating than your peers. (That being said, Theo does still ask about kids from his daycare, so the desire to connect is there in at least the abstract sense.)

Very recently, Theo seems to be moving towards back-and-forth interaction with other children. Theo greeted these two children with a big “hola” when they wandered over to where he was playing on the beach. We stayed until dusk while they chased each other across the beach and drew pictures in the sand.
