drawing addie

The other day Adelaide and I sat down at the kitchen table, with a cup of coloured pencils between us. I was distracted for a while, focused on drawing myself a little girl. But when I glanced over, I saw that Addie was very busy drawing her own little girl, too. These drawings make me happy.

The past couple of weeks, it seems as though Adelaide's brain has been developing at a huge pace. And It's really amazing for me to watch her learn, everything, at such a quick and desired pace.

She is drinking in the world.

And do know why she is learning so quickly? Because you are allowing her to! At her own pace in her place.
What a lucky little girl.

That is so sweet! She is quite an artist! You can actually tell it's a person and it has a body and head. Very good!

very cute; I hope you will keep those drawings and show them to her in a couple of years...
Me too I am surprised sometimes when I see or better glance at my daughter and realise what else and more she can do and how she absorbes everything...
very impressive and somehow inspiring as it makes me looking for more and getting creative with the simplest things...
cannot imagine my life - our life without kids anymore...

So fascinating! I'm amazed at the skill of her drawing and look at her writing her name!! It all goes to show how much they are learning every day. Sometimes I wonder; and then I see my little one do something totally new or do something I taught her and I say to myself "she IS listening! she IS learning! she IS experimenting!"

wow! that is just the loveliest picture. What a lucky girl, both of you. You have inspired me to sit down with my son today and do something colorful while my other baby sleeps. thanks for that!

how cute. what are some of your favorite art supplies to keep for kids? I have a daughter the same age and Im clueless.

Precious! I remember my now 5-year-old girl write her Es the way Addie's done it here, when she was about 3.

Savor those times, I say!

Holly said...

We have those Es over here too. You have a precocious little artist on your hands, Sharilyn! Nice to have a mama like you, too!

Are you peeking at each other's drawing? Tooooo much similarities on both girl drawings. The red dresses, two pockets, short brown hair, the smiles.. or are mothers and daughters have some telepathic nature?

Gül said...

Am I amazed? NO! :)
These are the early signs of a great artist, true-nature-lover girl's talent, we could see coming, since the day we first met her here. Thanks a million for sharing. *hugs*

Addie's drawing skills are superb! her attention to detail would put her skill level at 5+ years of age... exposing her to pencils, paper, scissors, glue, puzzles, books etc will ensure she is "never" bored! she's always love trying new things!

So, I do not really consider it may have success.
