Michael has been busy learning many new things this week. He has perfected his crawl. He is speedy now and loves to come for the camera. He has started using a sippy cup to drink water (with assistance holding it), and can play with his gumball machine independently, putting the balls in and pressing the lever to make them drop down. He is also starting to babble a lot more (mum, dada, tata). I guess he is using his lack of sleep due to teething to practice all this.
Michael also loves standing up, trying to walk, and is starting to cruise. He can't quite stand up beside the couch on his own, but will use toy buckets, stairs and footstools to boost himself up.
