This past week I had to go to Scotland for a 4 day meeting. It was really hard for me, specially after being on holiday and spending 3 weeks with Kaio and Jason.Kaio and Jason had a great time and did not even feel my absence (which on one side was great for them to bond even more....) Kaio had a bit of separation anxiety when Jason droped him of at daycare, although he was very happy to see his carers and the other babies. Besides that it was a great week to get Kaio back into his/our routine. On Thursday evening I arrived just in time to play, give him a bath and put him to bed. He was so happy to see me (as I was to see him!) I feel like all I did this past week was tell everyone how great, how smart, how cute and adorable my little guy is! This weekend was great! Kaio is so sweet, funny and adorable. He is really developing a great personality. He is strong willed but obedient at the same time. He likes to try/explore different things and imitate us when we work, speak or do anything he finds interesting. We gave him his Xmas gift (a little bike that we push around now and later he can ride around in), when we were putting it together he also wanted a screw driver to 'help' us. He loved the finished bike. On Sunday we went to the park and he loved riding on it. On saturday we opened Grandma's and Grandpa's Xmas gift. A play tunnel!!! With all kinds of animals and toys. Kaio is loving going in it and playing with us in it! (he jumps on us from the outside!) He also loves to look at the animals and imitate the noises!!!
At daycare, everyone is very impressed in how proficient Kaio is in the sign language and they are now motivated to teach him more and are 'using' him to show the other children. They also have been bragging to other parents who all want to see Kaio do the signing language... he is a mini celebrity!!!!
