a picture for daddy...

It is an amazing thing watching your child grow and learn and get such enjoyment out of life...


E has just started drawing people this last week...you know...the picture of heads with legs and arms, big eyeballs and E has feet on hers, and sometimes hair...fingers, toes and bodies and belly buttons will no doubt appear soon...


She has started writing letter Es for her name...I have pointed out Es to her sometimes (we have big paintings of all our names that I painted which she has looks at and knows which one is mummy, daddy and her name)...She did lots of squiggles and lines first as all kids do now the Es have appeared as well...although she goes to a Montessori school, they do not actively teach letters and so on at this age...so it is wonderful to watch her naturally develop as she becomes more aware of language and words around her. Tonight she was asking what the road signs like 'airport' were.


Anyway Ben flies off to Singapore tomorrow to join the boat again for another 5 weeks. E has drawn him a picture, put it in an envelope,written on it , and wanted a ribbon wrapped around it! It is her first picture of our family with our 'names' below! We only have one eye each! Great isn't it! She was so pleased with herself! And she was so excited to give it to Ben...he is saving it to take to work.
Hope your week has started well - Lissy

Isn't that cool! It looks like you are all dancing. I bet Ben thought it was awesome when he opened it up.
See you tomorrow!

that is so cool, you all look like you have space suits on, Riley is still scribbling (mainly on the walls) and we are now just seeing Alec doing these kinds of drawings
