My budding artist

Song: CSS... Alala



Leilani has suddenly moved into the next art development stage, stick figures. I LOVE it! She literally just started drawing these one day last week out of the blue, as if a light went on in her brain. I just love how they change and grow and learn, even when they are sleeping. Right now we have at least 15 or so of these drawings scattered around the house and in chalk on my parents driveway. She will draw a stack and then decide who is which drawing. See above likeness of Orion ("because he so small" :) ) and Leilani herself. She drew me a picture tonight of a stick person (which turned out to be herself) and a bunch of spots with color... she said they were chocolate chips and tumberries. Ohhhhh, tumberries, riiiiight. She said "yeah, tumberries... yuuuummmmy" and rubbed her belly. I love toddlers.
Oh, the song I know you're thinking whaaaa? Leilani loves this song... Uncle Stan sells Sub Pop music online and this band CSS is on the Sub Pop label. He made us a mix CD for Christmas, and for some reason, this child inappropriate song is her fave. :) She bobs her head and sings alalalalala, so cute.
