Absolutely love receiving compliments about our baby

Everyone loves compliments but when Tristan receives a compliment it is as though we both get complimented. Him, because he is adorable and great and me, because I can give myself credit for helping him be adorable and great :)

Tristan is doing great in daycare. After day 5, he hasn't been crying at all and is happy to be there. Well, there are off days here and there but generally he is doing great! We have been receiving lots of compliments from daycare. Here are some of the things they have said about him:

  • He has beautiful eyes.
  • He is such a joy to have around.
  • It didn't take him long at all to adjust.
  • He loves to read and just loves books.

  • He has the nicest clothes. I love how you dress him.
  • Blue is definitely his color. He's so adorable.
  • You can tell he is a mixed race and he is so cute.
  • He has a beautiful smile.
  • He is so gentle. The other boys are starting to head butt each other but Tristan is always so gentle when touching the others.
  • He loves the baby and is very gentle with her.
  • He is so thoughtful. One of the babies was crying and Tristan went to fetch her snuggle because he knows she likes it. When the ball dropped and one of the staff was looking for it, Tristan went to get it for her.
  • He is helpful. He helps with laundry.
  • He's smart.
  • He is a great eater. He likes to eat, eh?
I'm sure some of the same compliments are given to the other babies as well but it's always nice to hear these things about your own baby :) I have to admit, some of the other babies there are super adorable too. When I was doing gradual entry there with Tristan, I couldn't help but stare at some of them wondering what beautiful adults they will turn into one day.

We have also heard great stories about how he has been spending his time. He likes to play peek-a-boo and likes to run up and down the hallway to look outside the window. He loves when the staff sing and then he throws his arms in the air and likes to clap after wards. I think that was what they said. Something else we also noticed he got from daycare is that once you have a book in your hand and you're sitting down, he automatically comes to you and turns his body around to sit in your lap. He didn't used to do that before daycare.

You can tell he is starting to like daycare. Not only does he not cry when I leave, but he also walks willingly with his arms out to any of the daycare staff members. Today, he sort of waved good-bye to me too. Whenever we leave at the end of the day, he waves wildly to everyone with a huge smile on his face :) It's no surprise, I'm feeling a little proud of him lately.
