I've always been fascinated by the artistic stages kids go through--how they start at about 12-18 months with scribbles on paper, and then later, at around 3 they are drawing pictures that they can identify, at 4 starting to make people (heads and many legs) and then, finally, adding a body, feet, facial features, etc.
It's amazing how predictable that is.
Ollie is starting to really enjoy drawing. He's gone from simple scribbling, to 'making' letters, and now he's actually drawing things.
Here's his picture of a basketball:
Here's his name: (see the 'O', the 'L', and the 'I'?)
And he was spelling my name...one of the letters is an 'A'. So I wrote one for him to see...and he copied it! (that's his red A)
It's so fun to see him learning and growing and having such curiosity for that!
