My little artist!

Taylor is becoming quite the little artist with a love for drawing. The picture above is a "dinosaur that flies" (her words!). Thus, it's a drawing of a pterodactyl. I think the inspiration for this piece was an episode of Caillou. She drew it in early January (just before we moved, hence the big pile 'o stuff behind her).

She drew this a couple of weeks ago. This is her first drawing of a person with both a head and a body. Prior to this, she was drawing people with their legs and hands coming out of their heads. This is the typical progression of children's drawings, but I think her drawing is a little advanced. Color me impressed.

And this one totally blew us away! When she finished it, she said it's a dolphin. She later said it's a whale. It definitely looks like a whale, don't you think? I'm just amazed at her level of patience to be able to sit and draw this with a pencil and color it all in. The only time she'll still still for very long is when she's got a pencil or a crayon in her hand.

Thanks for letting me brag a little about my little artist :)
