Most of the time in parenting I find myself wondering how the time passes so quickly. It's difficult to be observant of the small, little changes that occur. Often I'll be out shopping or in line waiting for my coffee and someone will say, "I remember when mine where that small!" and they will have that faraway look remembering their early parenting days. This week Stella made one of those small changes and I actually have been able to notice it. Her art became literal. One day, literally, she drew a picture of herself and now she's obsessed with these "self-portraits." It's amazing to see; just two weeks ago her coloring consisted of scribbles & circles & lots of different colors. Now she uses a black sharpie and draws herself, her friends, her siblings. Here are a few samplings. . .
This is Stella's self-portrait.
Stella drew herself in the pink (due to the pink dress she had on) and her friend Katie in the purple.
Stella drew herself on the left and Gibson collaborated on this one, drawing himself on the right.
