The Bon Vivant

So I was reading a very old Parents magazine that had an article about baby personality types. It had several listed but one describes Drew to a T. It was called the Bon Vivant and it stated...

"This baby's bubbly and effusive with an infectious smile, and he likes attention. When strangers say hello, he greets them gleefully and they're as smitten as you are. "what a delight," they say. "Such a happy baby!" And he is, especially when interacting with others. Down the road, your social butterfly will thrive in playgroups. For now, though, teach him to fend for himself with calming activities. Let him listen to music or play with is mobile so he'll learn to get by without constant companionship."

Now, Merriam Webster defines Bon Vivant as "a person having cultivated, refined, and sociable tastes especially with respect to food and drink." I am not sure where they came up with that name for this personalty type. I like to think of it as being a little ham or big flirt, but what ever it is called it is exactly what Drew is!

Side Note: Did I mention the boy that does not sleep through the night and only sleeps on me slept for almost 8 hours straight and in his carrier two nights ago? He is sick now but if he wasn't I bet he would have slept a long time last night too. He also put himself to sleep for a nap, which he has never ever never never done before. Times are changing :)
