Horrible photos, but a great milestone - Reese's first representational drawing! He's much more interested in imaginative play, handling toys, and gross motor activity than in fine motor stuff like drawing, and it was such a surprise to see him pick up the magnadoodle and sketch with a purpose! I missed the very first drawing, a shape that was similar to this one and which he said was a uterus. This one was initially a uterus but then he added eyes and a mouth and said it's a baby. He was glowing with pride. I love seeing Reese so happy with himself, it's something we're seeing a lot lately.
Griff's first representational drawing was on a magnadoodle, too, and Xander's first scribbles also used that toy. The company should totally capitalize on this.
Just before Reese's doodle, he asked Griff to draw bacteria. Yeah, he really did. The results are on the right. Cilia and everything. I'm so proud.
