Mary-Jane has shown interest in pens and pencils, so we got her her very first own set of crayons and a drawing pad. I sat her in the kitchen at the dining table and off she went! She was quite fascinated at taking the crayons out of the packet one by one and putting them in the new box, then taking one in each hand, waving them about and making marks on the paper with them.
We've not particularly shown her how to hold the crayons, but she is getting there. She likes the bright colours.
Mary-Jane likes her crayons and is quite pleased with herself when she draws on the paper.
At the moment Mary-Jane is in the throes of teething. She was quite off the hooks at the weekend, off her food a bit and had a runny bum, appetite and other things are about back to normal. She now is sporting two new teeth, with a third about to crown and perhaps a couple more a few days of crowning. Poor little mite. She really doesn't know what to do with herself and her concentration is much less, not surprising under the circumstances. She is doing her best to smile through though.
