Michael Donovan Milestones

First Word.
Michael says “Up!” everytime he stacks a block

Michael can now climb out of his crib.

December 6th, 2007

Michael has never been that interested in lids and buckets or putting things into containers. Tim and I joke he is more destructive than constructive. Things have changed. As of this morning Michael is fascinated with taking the lid on and off a cleaned out cottage cheese container. The best is to put a toy in and shake it. He has played with that container all morning!

He has done it many times before, but this wasn’t just to get the ball out of the way, he dribbled the ball down the hallway. Auntie Beth would be so proud!
