We've been very busy the past few weeks. And our boy is growing up so quickly. He's now sleeping on a mat on the floor at daycare instead of having to be put in his crib for a nap. He understands us much better for a lot of things, such as asking him to put his toys away or give it to Mami/Daddy. He even said "Tia Elsa" as clear as day a few weeks ago, but hasn't said a whole lot since then. He also got his first molar a week ago, and it appears all four are coming in now.
Daycare told me that he is the leader in his class which surprised me because about half of his class is older than he is. But that day he starting pushing one of the kid chairs in the room, so all of the other kids started pushing the chairs too. We've always let him do this at home because it helped him walk at first and it kept him entertained with the loud dragging noise, but I suppose it's not a good habit in public. And daycare certainly didn't enjoy having all of their chairs being pushed around. So he can't push chairs anymore.
Here's a video of Michael helping Gigi put drinks in the fridge on his first camping trip.
Here's a video of Michael riding on Grampa's slide on the trip. After the first ride, he kept walking back to the beginning and sitting on the cardboard, asking for another ride!

This is Tom Brady when he was 1 year old.
He always helps us load the fridge at home now too.
He also got his first haircut a couple of weeks ago.
Here he's holding his first locks.
Finally, here's a video of Michael helping Daddy build a vegetable garden.
