Early OCD or Child Prodigy???

At any given time, on any give day, at any given location in my home you can find random toys, utensils and other household items lined up in odd and very humorous ways.  Since my boy was about 15 months old, he has had a weird obsession with lining up things.  When he does it with his trucks, cars, and trains I don't think much about it because that is the natural flow of traffic....a line.  But what grabs my attention is the other random items he lines up.  My husband thinks he may be trying to tell us something with these lines (he has seen one too many sci fi films).  I am not sure what I think about it, I just think it is cute :)  The child makes messes, but I must give him credit, they are organized messes.  Take a look for yourself:







What do you think?  Should I be worried? :)

Ok, I LOLed all through those pics ;) No worries, he appears to like things organized and I'm sure there's a method to that madness somewhere! Those will be good pics to show his wife one day lol!

I think Matt is right. he is trying to tell you something. He is trying to say "hey mom and dad guess what! I am a genius!"

Hi Sweetheart: That is so precious! If I didn't know better he is either destined to be an engineer, architect or wedding planner. : ) It could also be, in preparation for 2012, he is communicating with extra terrestrials. He is like that little boy on ET. He will be a smart little boy for sure. Can't wait to get home and play with him. I love you!

I would be worried if there were other things you had noticed that were odd--not wanting to interact with you, lack of smiles, etc., because lining toys up is actually a sign of Autism. But due to the way he seems to love on his sister, and smile 24/7, I wouldn't worry.
