Building Blocks

Reese has been building blocks alot the past week and this is one of the many castles that he built entirely on his own. Mummy only helped to stabilize the structure and helping him put the blocks straight or properly so that the castle won't topple! :) He will build and rebuild again and again.

One of his castle creation

Then we took out the Lego blocks for him and this is what he built...

Do you know what this is? We asked Reese and he said "Little city"

Then daddy built him a castle of some sort... :) with four towers...


Reese decided to take charge of the garden and this is what he did...

Wanna guess? He said these were seeds that will grow into beanstalks!

Another view of the garden

He then decorated one of the towers with flowers and marbles.



My son is getting more creative and I am glad that he enjoys building.

Now I am just waiting for him to be opinionated. You know, alot of children at this age will tell you off when they don't like something or explain to you why they want something and so on..... Reese doesn't. He will just tell you he wants/don't want something and that's it. He can be cheeky but not in words. When you ask him a questions, he doesn't even know how to answer you with a yes and no and only the past two weeks we started to teach him to do so. Hehehe... He can speak well but just doesn't know how to answer questions or give opinions or explanation. We are teaching him to do so now.

Merryn,

I also scared that Reese will put it in his mouth.... that is why only now we took it out and introduce the lego to him... :) We are sure he doesn't do such things anymore.

I like his Lego garden.

About Reese giving his opinion... eerrr... wouldn;t u want to wait till it happens naturally??? coz... ah yoo... once kids start to have opinions... its a battle of the minds everyday. With Ryan.. it is like that all the time coz he has to say something about everything all the time!And most of the time, it is more of rebellion! Very exhausting!

Thanks...

I am not forcing him to be opinionated! Just wanted to encourage him. Hehehe...
