first glue

Today was a momentous occasion in Adelaide's life - the first glue!

I love just sitting back and watching Addie work...she has this concentration which both amazes and fascinates me. She will smear the glue all over one page, around and around. Then colour over the glue with a pencil crayon. Try another colour. Dip the pencil into the glue and try that out. Glue over the drawing. Over and Over again, her tiny fingers flying. Once these options are exhausted, she will work in the fabric and paper scraps. Press, stick. glue. arrange. Find the teeniest paper bits and stick them all in a row. Pencil over top. Glue. Arrange and re-arrange. 

And all the while I can almost hear her little brain whirring away. 

She will only pause when the glue needs a twist up: the only time she needs any help from her mama!

What a special day. I remember my daughter's first glue. It was with the squeeze kind and she ended up with it all over her hands and just sat there peeling it off for about 30 minutes. Amazing stuff I'm telling ya!

Your Addie is such a sweet girl. Can't wait for my own Auni to show off her skills (by the way she's only 3 months old)
