My baby loves people…fact.
I reckon he gets bored of seeing the same person for more than a morning, so we try and get out and about as often as possible to give us both lots of variety. I think that’s what’s helped him be the sociable little boy he’s been to date.
Today I had part of a hen do to go to. As it’s harvest time and dad was working, my sister-in-law was looking after him. He loves it there – as well as lots of cuddles, he has a 21ish month old and a 9 year old cousin there to play with and be entertained by. I took lots of his usual toys/playgym to their house to make him feel at home (although he’s been there quite frequently so I think gets used to seeing them/their house), but obviously he gets to play with some of his youngest cousins toys, but mostly he just likes to watch what the boys do. And they like watching him.
He even had his lunch there (avocado, sandwiches, plum & strawberry – scoffed down), and was asleep in the youngest nephew’s cot by the time I returned.
He’s so good. No crying when I left (I think because there were dogs to watch), and only a short cry before his nap which is usual. He’s a star. Hopefully, being used to visiting & stopping at other people’s houses, it’ll mean he’ll settle well at nursery by the time he starts there.
