My Smart, Brave, Clever Boy

I know this makes 4 posts in one day, but if I don't blog it now, it may never get done...

I'm so proud of my boy! He never ceases to amaze me:

Gregory's really taken to building intricate spaceships with his Lego's and Duplo's. I think introducing him to Star Wars Episode I inspired him. He's made a very close replica's to Anakin's speed racer. It blows me away every time he shows off his inventions, explaining all the details I would miss, like where you tank it up with gas.

We recently bought Boggle. It's one of my favorite games, and we played it at the hospital while I was in labor with my girls. We plan on going natural this time, but if things don't go as planned, we want to have the game along to pass the time.
Gregory insisted that we teach him how to play. I shouldn't have been surprised when he caught right on. SUCH a smart kid! A cute thing he couldn't grasp, though, was that the cube with "Qu" on it meant you had to use both the "Q" and the "U" together. He kept finding words that just needed a "U", like "PURR". Of course, what do I know, right?

Fred hit the jackpot at Good Will when he found a huge box of assorted Capsela pieces. It's a line of versatile building sets no longer in production. Fred says he LOVED them when he was a kid. When I look at them, I get a head ache trying to make sense of them, or even considering where to start. Gregory has a blast inventing different contraptions with Fred, that actually function with batteries.

And what little boy doesn't love jumping off high places? Luckily, he's not the type who has ever needed stitches, but he does love acting out his adventures, which sometimes involve launching himself off various things and "flying".
