Whilst Jessica loves drawing, so far Sophie’s only use for crayons has tended to be something to chew on (until Mummy is a spoilsport and takes them away). It was therefore a lovely surprise to see her sitting down at the craft table at one of the toddler groups this week happily holding a crayon in her hand and scribbling away.
She tried out a few different colours and spent a good few minutes drawing on the paper before remembering that crayons were quite tasty too! I’m very proud of her first ever drawing – it’s currently ‘framed’ on our artwork wall and will be going in Sophie’s artwork folder later on.
We also had another lovely first at toddler group when she discovered the easel and had a go at drawing on it with the chalk.
And to add to the week of firsts, Sophie also started singing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ this week too. She’s definitely trying to sing the whole verse judging from the pattern of noises although of course most of the words are more like babbling noises but there are a few words here and there that are reasonably clear. I keep trying to capture a video of her singing it but like most toddlers, the minute the camera appears, she instantly stops doing it altogether!
