Today Oliver made his first drawing. This may not seem like a big thing, but I got this sidewalk chalk and for the past week every time he holds one it immediately goes in his mouth (of course). I kept taking it out, then showing him how the chalk makes colors on the ground and encouraging him to make his own. Today when we went out to the patio I handed him a piece of white chalk and he made four lines very deliberately in the cement, looked up, and smiled. Then he put the chalk in his mouth. :)
It made me realize how excited I am for him to start learning to draw. It was a big moment for me, seeing him begin that process. Yay Oli!
