Little thrills


Lately the Kiddo has been retrieving tiny slips of paper, plopping her hand over their entirety, and shouting "Haat?", which means, "Will you trace my hand?" We've been endlessly outlining hands and feet now for weeks.

Today I thought she might enjoy having her entire body traced. She was so excited she could hardly stop wiggling long enough for me to draw her outline. And she was even more thrilled when I started scribbling in the details. Really, it's a project that's probably a bit old for her (hence my doing all the drawing), but she loves it! She could hardly wait to show Todd when he came home.

I can't believe how big she's grown.

  1. Looks like you two had a really good time. My kids were always easy (and still are) to entertain that way.

    I traced my daughter recently and it totally freaked her out. She would have nothing to do with the tracing. So strange! Toddlers.
