Okay I had a proud momma moment last night with my DD 27 mths. She had brought her doodlepad into a restaurant last night and happily went to drawing. For the most part she has been drawing volumuos creatures with some features up to this point. Of course, nothing recognizable, but last night I looked over and she had drawn a baby bird coming out of a nest. It had eyes and a mouth as well as little wings. There was shading in the nest and a sense of volume in the bird. She even told me it was a bird in a nest. As an artist I was thrilled and just had to take a picture before it got wiped clean.
