For the first few months, daddy or the girls had to help him put it together. It was the box that said "ages 5-12" on it. So, it was to be expected that he would need a little help.
But, over the last few weeks, he has become a Legos expert. He had a couple of gift cards left over from Christmas and we finally got around to using them. And all he bought were different types of Legos sets. Mostly from the movie Cars.
Yesterday, when he came home with two more boxes full of Legos, he sat down during quiet time and put together three cars and a boat. All by himself. Again, the box said "ages 5-12." He very methodically went from one page to the next, following the directions, exactly. And, very patiently.
When he went to bed last night, I told him how proud I was of him for being persistent and following directions and putting together his Legos, all by himself.
I was and am truly amazed by how his brain works. And, it is kind of fun having a boy . . .
