His first day...

Dan did the drop off this morning because he goes into work later than I do. I was so sad to miss it, but Dan took this picture for me as they walked out the door.

on his way to preschool!

Just like with me a couple of weeks ago, Joaquin dove right in and barely said goodbye when he left. I called in the mid-morning and they said everything was great.

When I went to pick him up this afternoon I walked in the classroom and it took about 2 or 3 minutes for him to even notice me! I watched him get up from the rug and sit down at the table to get his snack. He was so cute! He followed his directions and sat so patiently for his apple and crackers.

Then he saw me...he squealed "Hi Mami!", but stayed where he was and went right back to hanging with his buddies. After snack I actually had to bribe him with Bita's house (my mom's house) to leave! He even napped for almost two hours, it was my biggest worry because an unnapped Joaquin is not a happy Joaquin. But he was just fine!

It makes me feel so much better to see how much fun he was having. I think it's so funny how people talk about babies that co-sleep and nurse longer than the normal year will have "attachment issues". Joaquin is so the opposite! He just totally impressed me today with his outgoing and social personality. It makes me happy.

I am so glad that Joaquin is loving preschool! It sounds right up his alley.
