Olivia Drawing Papaw's Portrait

I'm not sure exactly what day these were taken while we were in KY over Christmas... but it had to have been after Christmas b/c Olivia is playing with a little wipe off board that Ma-maw gave to her.

Paul Thomas got one too - but didn't want to get buckled in his seat to use it.. so he just had to watch. While Ma-maw cooked breakfast Olivia kept everyone entertained.

I wonder what she's thinking as she moves the pen across the board... I think she has a plan of some sort because she was talking to herself the whole time. Oh here is a clue - here she stars with the eyes...

and a dot for a nose and a line for a smile..

Can you see the face... It looks just like Papaw don't ya think? ;) She actually did it all on her own with out being coached - I wasn't even payin attention and it was my dad who realized that she had made a face! :) Now that I have gone back thru all the photos that I took - it is apparent that she was making a face the whole time! WOW pretty creative for a 2 year old. :)

Ta-Da! Olivia's first portrait was of her Papaw! ;)

Wow! I'm pretty impressed with the way she's holding that pen. We're still working with Carter and he's almost 4 1/2! He just REFUSES to hold it the right way!
