Anaiah does not have many friends, just a few at school. I don't know the little boy who she is best friends with at school. Only that his name is Hamza and that he is one of the naughtiest little boys. (already going for the bad boys.. scarry!lol)
I think her best friend this summer was Mitchel, my mom's neighbor's grandson. They had such fun together. She misses him a lot.
Does kidlet have friends? a few Does he/she have a best friend yet? no Are they friends that they made on their own, or are they other kids you sort of pushed together with yours? a couple are ones she made on her own at playgroup. I'm not a social person so I don't really have many friends to push my kids into I became friends with one of the kid's friends mom, Seamus was in school with her daughter for Head Start and Kieran was at Early Head Start with her son and we started talking and hanging out after the kids did.
Hannah says that her best friend is my niece, Grace. And she can only have one best friend. She LOVES Gracie (as Grace loves her too). It's quite adorable. As for other friends, she is friends with a little boy who is a couple months younger than her - his mom and I are good friends. She also has lots of friends at preschool that she talks about. Generally when I asked her what she did at school she says "played with my friends" lol.

BE has a few friends. I wouldn't say I've pushed them on him, but naturally they are people we are around often for other events. Ie; other kids from our church, etc.. His best friend is a little boy names Asher who is BE's age and the youngest of 4. His family is part of our church small group that meets each Sunday night.
Siera's friends are those that she sees on a consistent basis - ex. cousins, my cousins kids, etc. She claims her best friend is Leo (DH's cousin - about a year or so older than Siera and also a preemie baby). They get along together really well - a lot better than she does with her female "friends" which is really funny to me.
If I take her to the playground I try to get her to play with other kids but she tends to be shy. "Mommy, tell her hi!" is what I usually get. She wants me to start the conversation between her and whatever kid. And then she doesn't really talk much to other kids but tries to "show off" (going down the slide backwards, etc.) until they're actually playing together for a solid 5-10 minutes. Then it's doing whatever the other kid is doing and some talking.
Other than his brother and sister not really. James pretty much ignores other kids at church, playground etc. We are trying to work on his social skills (all part of the delays he struggles with) but it's hard because other kids think he's weird when he freaks out about something. He just prefers to play alone without anyone else around
