Hi Everyone!! How are you??
I know it’s hard to believe, but these pictures are from last May and June when I was only 25 months old. I asked Mommy to post them so I could tell you a story…
Well, last April, Mommy gave me a special gift to use on our trip together. It was a magna-doodle!
It was compact, versatile and quiet (perfect for planes and solemn gatherings)– and I loved it!
My all-time favorite creation was…
It all started at my Great-Grandmother’s funeral when Mommy whisper-sang Once There Was a Snowman while drawing it out for me.
From then on I was hooked. I frequently asked her to draw and sing and eventually began to draw on my own!
At first, I started out simple.
But then the creative juices began to flow…
And my snowmen got taller.
And had faminies!
And every once in a while…
I threw in something really random.
Then I explored other mediums.
“Mommy, what are ‘mediums’?”
And Mommy explored the delicious roundness in my profile.
How sweetly my fingers held the chalk.
And how cute I was when I concentrated.
And without fail, my faminies always melted her heart!
But I still loved to go back to my magna-doodle.
And if Mommy was careful and stayed nearby.
(And admired my cute legs).
(And caught me before I erased!)
She was rewarded with a glimpse of something really unique–like my first crocodile!
But you know what her absolute favorite was?
When I drew a little piece of me.
