Here are the notes from Gordon's Day Care 'Daily Report' starting from his first day...
Gordon spent a lot of time exploring today. The other babies brought him things to explore. He seemed to really like the duplo caterpillar. He pushed it around for a while.
Gordon spent a lot of time with our musical instruments today. He especially liked the shakers and the string of bells.
Gordon seemed to enjoy our walk this morning. He looked quite happy & relaxed as we toured around. While inside he showed interest in the cars, bells and the swing too.
Gordon has done well this morning. Once again he really seemed to enjoy our morning walk. He also spent some time up in the swing and on the floor with the sensory bottles, cars, shakers and balls.
Gordon thought the exersaucer was quite cool. He liked making the wheels spin. We played peel-a-boo from there too.
Gordon enjoyed hanging out in the window seat for a little while this morning. He watched closely as the cars, trucks and people passed by. He also had fun looking at himself in the mirror and got excited... smiling at himself and banging on the mirror.
Gordon was quite entertained by the musical telephone today. He liked pressing many of the buttons to hear the different sounds and make the music play.
Gordon had a great time outside this morning. He enjoyed his time in the swing watching all of his friends. He had lots of big smiles for everyone!
Everytime I called Gordon "Gorgeous Gordy" today, he gave this cute little grin. (As if to say "that's what my mum and dad call me). It was very cute!
