    We’ve added some legos to the bath toy collection and he is loving it. He likes filling them with water then transferring the water to the cups and he also puts one in each of the bowls. This is one of the first structures he has built since having the legos in the tub with him. There is even some cute little toes in the pic as well. This was what he left when he got out.

    (Magnificent Masterpieces is a collection of Dorian’s building and structure work. It’s a place for me to track his learning progress as well as appreciate his architectural feats and embrace his love for creating.) Yesterday was a huge building day for him. He was stacking everything from his wooden blocks and legos to macaroni boxes and board books. The one to the left he made then turned and handed it to me in a completely nonchalant manner then ran off to play with other toys. Then I looked over at his lego play area and saw the one on the right. I have to say, I am actually shocked at…

    (Magnificent Masterpieces is a collection of Dorian’s building and structure work.

I was in the next room and Daddy said that he looked around for me when he finished and seemed sad that I wasn’t there to see his completed project. My eyes filled with tears hearing this. As far as his building progress goes, I’m starting to see a resemblance in a lot of his lego structures now. He concentration when playing with his blocks is growing longer…

This cute little structure was one that he had created during his alone time in his room. I was actually on the toilet when he came barging in with excitement, holding his arm straight out with this in his hand, super thrilled to show me his latest creation.

I’ve been teaching him to make towns with different structure types lately. This was a little block cluster that he was very proud of, and I’m assuming it must be a small town.

His interest in blocks has grown tremendously over the last few months. He will spend a good amount of time, which is about 15 to 20 minuets, working with his block sets. And I always know he has completed his building because he never fails to commend himself on a job well done.

    (Magnificent Masterpieces is a collection of Dorian’s building and structure work.

Earlier in the day, me and Daddy had been talking about 9-11 and how it had affected our lives, which is more on Daddy’s part since he is from New York. Then later Dorian was simply stacking single blocks one on top of the next as high as he could and I thought it would be great tribute to our earlier conversation if we were to build…

    (Magnificent Masterpieces is a collection of Dorian’s building and structure work. It’s a place for me to track his learning progress as well as appreciate his architectural feats and embrace his love for creating.) This was his very first lego creation. I watched as he meticulously put one block on top of the next then moved some around until he finally seen his idea come to life. As he placed the last block he stood up, shouted “Yay,” clapping happily, then looking over to see if I was seeing what he had accomplished. I joined in on his victory dance then gave him a big hug and a told him…
