Liz needed some time today, so I let Claire pick out a kit from our stash of Legos. I walked her through the instructions--mainly to prompt her about counting which step she was on and to ask her what pieces she needed--and she did the rest, sorting and assembling the kit entirely on her own. She has a little difficulty with some of the smaller pieces ("Legos can be squirrelly, right, Daddy?") but she completely surpassed my expectations.
I love how she ended up in the background of this shot, eyes down at floor level to see what I was up to.
