When Babies Connect (video!)

There are moments when I'm astounded by the sensitivity of babies. Babies carry a reputation for toy taking, hair pulling, and being spatially unaware of their surroundings and each other. As caregivers, we often have a 'no touching' rule when it comes to interacting with other children.  The fear of safety, spreading germs, and unpredictable impulsive behaviors keeps babies from communicating, exploring and showing affection the best way they know how, through touch.

This tender video illustrates that babies are much more complex and dynamic in nature, then they are given credit for.
