Emma and I went to the mall to shop last week and of course we had to make a pit stop at the playground!
Emma continues to take a loooooooooooooong time to warm up to environments like the mall playground. She usually sits right next to me on the couch to watch the other children play for 20-30 minutes before she will even think about venturing out to play. I’m learning to just “let Emma be Emma.” I try not to push her. I kind of enjoy the snuggle time with her and we talk about the other kiddos who are playing. Her personality continues to be “Slow to Warm” and I love her for that. She is cautious, inquisitive, and observant.
When she does gear up to play though, she really knows how to play!
