More Playing With Uma Pai

oh goodness. i like how you have "friends, play" as the tags. uma is clearly learning how these things work. the more she gets together with other children the better for everyone. she either is kissing or testing out blocks on other people's heads. it's funny how she is to anjali what other bigger, faster kids are to her. maybe it's developmental?

Poor bunny! First, Uma takes her basket, then later, tries to go under her arms and then bops her on the head. You can watch her processing it all in disbelief! She even tries to pull her basket back and when it gets pulled again, she's had enough and comes crawling over to Jeremy, upset. We haven't yet had Anjali play with younger babies yet, so I am not sure what she would do.

Yes, Uma was disturbingly mean that day, I thought. Radha worked with her and when I asked each time how Uma was with Anjali, if she was better, he says she is better. I think, too, it depends how sleepy she is, but mostly she is starting to respond to our direction. Today I called her name and told her we are not playing in that room, to come back and play with mama. And she did. I notice that Uma and Olivia and Malcolm are playing better with practice too. Today they all played nicely together and alone. Uma gave everyone kisses and no bonks at all. But then, she's the little of the group. Le sigh, it's sad but Anjali is Uma's learning lab. : ( The price of friendship....?
