I am a very haphazard Lego builder, even as a kid, I generally liked to just kind of stick Legos together at random and see if a pattern emerged. I almost never had a plan, and if I ran into difficulties making something, I usually just abandoned it and tried making something else entirely.
Maeve has a totally different way. She not only has specific goals in mind, I can tell they're more inside her head, because she has trouble verbalizing them to me. But when she accomplishes what she's trying to do, I suddenly see that she was aiming for it the whole time.
And when she runs into obstacles, she simply engineers a way around them by trial and error, until the Legos are doing just what she wants them to do. It's amazing to watch.

Well, now they do.
