Michael Learns a New Skill

Michael's Mom took these pictures with her cell phones.  She's very good at keeping us up on what is new with Michael.
Michael doesn't chew very well so all of his food is pureed to protect him from choking.
 Whenever he would hear the sound of the food processor he would get excited and get in the way.
 His mom found a solution to the problem.  Now Michael has learned to help.  He pushes the buttons on the processor and is quite pleased with himself; and he gets his food faster since he isn't impeding the process.
Michael likes bed time, he is always put to bed with a song.  Dad sings a silly song, Mom sings a sweet, tuneful song and when Grandma puts him to bed, he gets an off key song.  It isn't unusual for him to be the one to decide it is bedtime. He will take an adult by the hand and lead them to his bed.

See more of the world at That's My World, Tuesday; hosted for us by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, and Sylvia.

Sweet photos of Michael. I like that Michael can "make" his own meals. He looks happy about it, too!

Michael looks like a very sweet young man who knows that he is well loved.

Your posts about Michael are always welcome; I feel as if I know him by now. Your love shines through. (And needless to say that of his parents.)

(He'd get an out-of-tune song from this grandmother too. I used to think maybe the kids fell asleep out of self-defense.)

How very cool that Michael can help at meal time. I'm glad you've shared this new skill. I like reading about Michael. Sure wish my kids would have liked to go to bed.
