Crayons..

I've been meaning to do this for a while now, but today I finally remembered to go down the crayola aisle at Wal-Mart and got some crayons for Parker. I decided not to do the coloring book and figured that she could just use typing paper...but then decided to go back at the last minute for manila paper since it is bigger. I was so excited to get home and see what she would do with them. The other day she picked up my ink pen (that was closed, thankfully) and started acting like she was 'writing', so I thought...well- maybe she would actually do some writing with these.

No real 'writing' took place today, but she did really enjoy them, and made some concerted effort (or so I believe).

Here she is when she first put the crayons in her hands.

Then she drew a few very light lines...(the ones you can see are mine)

Oh wait....let's go put some crayons in my bumbo seat...

Then she 'colored' a little bit more...


So all in all, the event was successful. She never even tried to eat the crayons!!! (this was actually surprising to me). She did break the end off of one of them by crawling with them back and forth from the paper to the bumbo seat, and then made a few marks on the tile...but other than that...no harm done.

I was telling Geoff how she really does watch everything that we do because she does imitate us sometimes. Like when I stick out my tongue...she will, too. Maybe this isn't such a good thing...
