I am not a baby psychologist but this reads as a really positive relationship to me. Your baby is confident and happy with other people and doesn’t worry when you’re out of sight because they know you’ll come back. You are always there for them when they need you most, and are confident and secure enough to play on their own. Sounds to me like you’ve got an independent spirit with a really secure attachment to you!
As for your MIL, if she isn’t the type to levy backhanded compliments, I wouldn’t take her comments at anything more than face value. She’s probably just surprised to see it and is just verbalizing it. I definitely wouldn’t take it personally.
