J-man enjoys other children. Always has. But definitely as he has aged and his language has not kept up, he has become even more cautious of new kids. He doesn't know what to do. So he sits back and observes. Or avoids. Or clings to mommy and daddy.
But I must say, he has really done great. He seems to love the activity and loves watching the kids. He still is more in "parallel play" mode, but still... I am so very pleased!
Here's a picture of J-man and his new friend, hanging out and watching a little TV.
