About two weeks ago, when we went out to eat, I introduced Paige to crayons. I really didn't think she would be all that interested in it after her normal five seconds of attention span, but WHOA! She totally loved it. She giggles when she makes a mark on the paper with the crayon. She likes to look at all the colors, makes a very careful choice, and then goes to town. I have also noticed that unlike her big sister, she is pretty much using only her right hand. She does use her left some, but she starts out with the right, and usually goes back to it. So, I am thinking that she is probably a "rightie".
This whole drawing thing is coinciding with Emily's artistic abilities as well. Emily has really improved with her drawing - and is enjoying it as well. We may have to rent a storage space for all this artwork that is coming out of our house lately. And of course, more lessons in sharing, since all the crayons in this house pretty much belong to Emily. Oh what fun!
