I decided to take Andrew to daycare 2-3 days a month just so he can be around other kids. I mentioned this before, but a girl at my work (she's a CNA) runs a part-time as needed daycare out of her home. It is only 10 blocks from my work! :) Oh, and she only charges $25.00 a day. That's a pretty good deal.
He did a lot better than I thought he would! They have a couple of dogs, so the first thing he did when we got there was go chase after them. He was exploring the premises, as I knew he would. There are a ton of toys for him to play with! This co-worker of mine has 3 kids--the oldest, a girl, is 7 ? I think, and she goes to school (which is literally across the road), and she also has a 3-year old boy and a 16-month old girl. Today there was another co-worker's 15-month old girl there too. She watches her whenever her mom works.
So, anyway I got there 1/2 hour early today so he could get acquainted, but he totally felt comfortable so that's awesome! I hope he goes down okay for a nap. DH normally puts him down in his crib, turns on his Baby Einstein aquarium, and he goes to sleep no problem. I have no idea how he'll do in a different crib with possibly a different crib toy. Yesterday, he fell asleep on the living room floor (he has never done that before), so I guess anything is possible.
