Cutting his first tooth and orientation at daycare.

My little boy is cutting his first tooth! Yikes! I am intending to breastfeed a little more but if the little one bites, hmmmm, I'll rethink about the whole thing.

He is quite the lovely little boy though, babbling all the time. Poor little one has a runny nose for the last week or so. I have been using a nasal spray and a mucus sucking device called a mouche bébé in french. He hates it but it works. His nose is not as blocked anymore and he seems to be on the road to recovery.

Onto another subject, yesterday we started the first day of orientation at the daycare. It's the same daycare Laetitia attended for the last three years. She started at around 6 months and stopped two months ago at the end of July. Now, it's Loïc turn at the daycare. All went well, we both stayed for an hour. The next session is on Monday where I will stay for half an hour with him and he will be by himself for the next half hour, followed by a session on Wednesday with me staying for half an hour and him by himself for one and a half hours. He will then progressively stay longer and longer by himself up to the intended 5 hours from 12:30pm to 5:30pm within the next 4 sessions. I think he will enjoy some interaction with other babies and I will also benefit from having a little time on my own. Other then that, Laetitia will also gain from having some time alone with me without her little brother in the picture every Wednesday when there is no school.

My little baby is growing up, not so little anymore. He's seven months old tomorrow!!!
