Great Day!!

Michael had a really great day today. I gave him a toy that he's had for a few years, but never played with. It is a nesting woodland animals set, similar to the classic Matryoshka dolls.

He spent much of the day taking them apart and putting them back together and trying to figure out how to line the top and bottom up correctly. It was so nice to have him play appropriately with a toy for so long.

What was even better is that he wanted to interact with us and the toy. He'd bring the animals over, sit in my lap, and ask me to help when the pieces were stuck, and just generally talk about the animals when he wanted to make conversation.

Additionally, he helped a lot with making his cookies and cleaning up. Definitely a great day!
