I Always Feel Like... Somebody's Watching Me!

Who needs toys?

 Along with her numerous developments in preschool (recognizing letters, counting more and more, Lego-building skills, taking turns, dressing one self proficiently) - Ayla's drawing has gone from mere circles and blobs to people and storytelling. At least for me, her devoted parent.

She clearly loves to draw, whether it is at the table with markers or on the computer. The girl gets up early every morning and quietly goes to her "drawing table" and creates mounds and mounds of art. I went through the pile of papers tonight and sadly (since I don't want to become a hoarder) I threw most of it in our recycling pile.

But here are a few for posterity. I think they are beautiful.

The range of emotions!
Clearly, we have been watching a lot of "Tangled" recently.
A princess having dreams?
Perhaps Swan Lake... we like ballet around here.
This one is my favorite. It looks like a Mommy swinging her baby around, joyously.


  1. ...pure joy reading this...

  2. that last one is totaly ponyo! and the "dreaming" one is actually Ayla pooping on Gregory sleeping!
