This past Christmas, Abigail got two really big art kits full of crayons, markers, glue, glitter, stickers, paper, and all kinds of messy artsy things. In the past month she has really gotten into doing art. She is painting or drawing something almost every afternoon.
Anyways, back to the story….
We went to the dollar store and I wanted to get Abigail something too. I found her some new paint and she loved them. She thought I was awesome for getting her those paints. She painted all evening. Later I thought about how I would so much rather spend my money on paint and art supplies than on silly little plastic toys (like I did Austin).
Speaking of a different art form, Jackson is mastering the art of holding his own bottle. I LOVE IT! When I am in the middle of cooking supper or household chores, I don’t have to stop and feed him. Of course we don’t always make him hold his own bottle, but a couple times a day it is a nice break. He looks like such a big boy.
