We also got the cutest gear for him from SheShe Made...he was definitely styling for his first day! Thanks so much Ashley...we (and everyone else!) love it. :)You might have noticed in the pictures above that Manny had two tubes of ointment in his hand. He is real funny about choosing a random object each day and that's what he likes to take with him everywhere. Well yesterday he decided the tubes of ointment would be his sidekick. I had to laugh when I saw him grab the ointment and his backpack and drag it to the front door...he was ready to go! :)
Two things I do want to ask about:
1. You'll notice from his report card that he didn't nap at all, which I didn't expect him to really. You know how you'll see kids asleep in strollers, or falling asleep in exersaucers or playing with toys? Well that has NEVER been Manny. If there is any kind of activity going on, he can't sleep. He naps great if he's in a room by himself, but I'm so worried he's never going to nap there. He doesn't take a paci or stuffed animal or anything, so that makes it hard. They were very nice about it but I was just wondering if anybody has had a similar experience with their child? I know it was his first "group napping" experience, so it will take some time...but if you have any input I would love to hear it.
2. He also barely ate any of his lunch or snack. In fact, if they hadn't sent the report home, I would've thought he didn't eat anything at all because the containers basically were full. They don't feed him anything - only items I send, so I know he didn't eat other stuff. I know it could have just been the whole first day experience causing him not to eat. But again, if you've had a similar experience I'd love to hear about it.
Thanks friends, and happy Wednesday! :)
