Tristan's Puzzle

If there is one thing that Tristan really loves, its animals. But put those animals on a 24-piece wooden puzzle board and he's all smiles. His first attempt really didn't go so well (this was about a month and a half ago). A week or so later we tried again. This time we showed him - turn the piece around, try it in a different spot, and if those don't work, get a different piece. Without our help, he managed to get it halfway done by himself, before asking for help. Instead of pointing out where the piece goes, we asked him questions. Eventually, he figured it out to the point where he can do the whole thing without assistance. I suppose we need to get a new puzzle or two to challenge him even more.

Here is a video I compiled of him putting his puzzle together. Please excuse the runny nose and occasional coughs. He hasn't been feeling too good lately. Oh, and sorry that the video is a bit long. It still takes him about seven minutes to finish the puzzle (with interruptions).

About This Blog

My name is Mary and I'm a working mom with two beautiful children. I've worked for over seven years at a credit union, currently as an administrative assistant. Last fall, I went back to school and started on a Bachelors in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Elementary Education.

My hobbies, when I have time, include photography, sewing, photo processing, digital scrapbook, online gaming, reading, role playing games like DnD, and board games. But what I really love doing is just being a mom to my two children, Tristan and Melayna.

Tristan, whois four, is an awesome big brother and such an intelligent little boy. He loves Transformers, animals, Dr. Seuss books, and eating.

Melayna, who is one and a half, has definitely taught her momma patience. Unlike her easy going brother, she is curious and persistent. And if something stands in her way, she will definitely let you know her displeasure. Regardless, she is a sweetheart and daddy's little girl.
