My idea of normal is skewed because of foster care. My 14 month old is still very wary of strangers. She's outgoing and confident around our immediate family, my parents and was pretty comfortable with one regular babysitter, but we haven't used any other childcare and aren't using the babysitter currently. She won't go to anyone else willingly. And depending on her mood she'll occasionally burst into tears when a stranger walks in (happened this morning with a new social worker). She usually will smile and snuggle on my shoulder when strangers are close. She's not terribly clingy, and will play in public like on playgrounds no problem. Just doesn't want strangers close. I'm assuming this is fairly normal still, but it's very different than our others and I kind of thought it would get a little less over time.
