Lego Planes

by Christopher on October 6, 2012

Evan got a Star Wars Lego set for his birthday, it is rated 7-12 year old.  When doing legos, I usually do most of the work building it and he plays with it.  This time I wanted him to do as much of it as possible.  I separated the pieces into piles, and page by page handed him the pieces he needed for the page.  Evan built the entire thing by himself minus 2 times where I corrected the position of a block for him.  Very impressed and proud of my little builder.

 

Then this morning, he built the airliner from scratch completely without help!  It took around two hours but he was able to build this by following the directions with his new found confidence.  The Star Wars one was impressive, but I had a feeling he could do it.  This was a complete shock.

Swinging

by Christopher on October 20, 2010

Evan started using the big boy swings the other day all by himself!  No longer does he need to be “pushed”.   Not to say he won’t ask to be pushed a lot.

Zipper!

by Christopher on October 2, 2010

Evan zipped up his vest all by himself today for the first time.  Even took both sides and got the zipper started without any help.

Sad days…

by Christopher on October 2, 2010

I took Evan to the Windham park the other day and I started to realize something…

Evan is no longer the small little boy everyone tells their kids to be careful of and he is becoming the “big kid”.  It’s bad enough I’m getting older, now my baby is growing up.
