Settling into Home

I love interacting with people. Here I am at the hotel playing.

I have been such a trooper!  While I began sleeping through the night just a few days after we arrived, I still like to get Mom and Dad up and going bright and early.   We’ve explored a lot of our area and more central Bangkok these past few days.  I’ll put up some pictures of our adventures.  Before we found our new home, we lived at a hotel.  The very first day the policeman said hello to me so I smiled for a picture and then the restaurant staff greeted me.  I loved the breakfast and all the friendly smiles that would great me.  I ate ham, eggs, french toast and papaya for a whole week for breakfast!  My usual day of getting to know the town meant that Grandma Stroud and I would take several long walks a day and explore all the soi’s (small side streets), walk around Mom and Dad’s university campus, watch people cooking at the stalls along the roads and play in the hotel lobby.  Now that I am walking I love to get out of the stroller and cruise around.  The attention is great!  So when people watch me and say hello, I’ll give them a little wave – they seem to love that here.  Now I’m trying to learn how to wai (bow) so that I look more local. Besides my blond hair I think I’m going to fit in pretty quick here.  Especially since Grandma Stroud found this great little daycare next to the Sripatum (that is said just how it looks, but without pronouncing the “r”) University.

Ajarn A is so patient with me

My daycare is a lot of fun.  I’m the youngest guy there so I’m going to learn fast from all the big kids.  I’ve already begun to respond to two Thai words.  Seems like they are always telling me “no” and “don’t put that in your mouth”.  I guess the teachers are looking out for me.
