I'm puzzled!

Henry is getting really good at puzzles. He's always been really curious about how things work, and he always wants to know how things fit together. So it's pretty natural for him to enjoy puzzles.

Recently I introduced Henry to a new puzzle that I had found at a garage sale a while back. It has a Noah's Ark scene on it and it has about 60 pieces. Henry does this puzzle an average of 4 times a day. On a really good day, he'll put this puzzle together at least 10 times. Can you say obsessive? Some days I hide it, just so we can do something besides the puzzle!

The funny part about this for me, is that for some reason, Henry insists on calling it his "Moses Puzzle." He knows the story of Noah (his nursery was decorated in Noah's Ark-he's heard the story!), and he can even tell us all about it. But when it comes to this puzzle, he always wants to do the Moses puzzle. It probably doesn't help that Sam thinks that it's funny, so he started calling it Henry's Moses puzzle too!

Henry does have a way to winning us all over to his way of talking. At least BABY Jordan and I think so!

that's a pretty big puzzle for a three year old to be building, but then he's always been curious about taking things apart and figuring out how to put them back together.....I'll look around and see if I can find a new one to bring when I come to visit....mom

Amazing that it can keep a three year old occupied that long. What a blessing!

Just don't buy him a Moses puzzle or he will begin to think it's Noah in the basket in the river :) Maybe he could save pennys and buy one himself someday, haha. Just kidding, Lisa.
