Peek a boo is a good game to start playing at this age (if you're not already). It teaches object permanence...i.e. things still exist even when you can't see them. Also, hiding a toy under a blanket (preferably something that makes noise) and asking her to look for it is a good game for this as well. If she can't find it, make it make noise under the blanket as a hint. Other than that, just make sure that when you do hand her off to someone, that you walk away with confidence...babies take their cues from you...if you're worried about her response, she may sense that and react accordingly. Then, you're just going to have to keep practicing...it'll pass.
