So…I’m going to go all Proud Mama on you today, and share a few drawings my son has done lately. This one is from about three weeks ago titled:
Little Tiny Baby Daddy with a Beard
This one is from two weeks ago, titled: Daddy and Baby (my son refers to himself as Baby)
and later that week:
And this one, from last week. We can’t remember what my son referred to it as, but we named it: Spotted Green Bean (ignore my husband’s drawings)
To witness this sort of progression in his drawing, in such a short time, has been incredibly exciting. Recognizable figures! With limbs! Lately he’s been obsessed with markers, greatly prefers them over crayons, but he’s also been warming up to and experimenting with this gorgeous set of colored pencils, a gift from Santa:
Yup. He’s a Lefty.
Isn’t it fun watching this aspect of kids development?
The other day he started drawing this series of harsh, controlled zig zags and I had to clamp a hand over my mouth to squelch my squeals. I know, I know, I’m a total nerd. I might actually explode when he starts writing numbers and letters.
