Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! In honor of this fluffy heart-filled holiday, I want to share a quick post about what Lillian has been up to in art class lately.
Last week, toward the end of a work day, I was pleasantly surprised to look at my phone and find this picture from Lillian’s daycare. It shows her in the midst of a Valentine’s Day craft project, complete with some washable purple marker on her chinny-chin-chin:
From what I can gather, the activity was more geared toward the older kids, but I’m told that Lillian went over to the table and sat down in a chair all on her own to join in. She picked out two different markers to color with — it looks like a purple one and a thinner lighter blue one — and sat like a big kid for the full duration of the activity, diligently scribbling away on her cut-out paper heart.
Later that day I got to see the masterpiece in person when I picked her up. The hearts had all been punched with holes and were hanging from the ceiling, so I asked to see the one Lillian made, and snapped this photo of it with one hand while holding an excitedly-chattering Lillian in the other. Just look at these lovely scribbles!
I have to admit, I had one of those emotional “she’s growing up” moments at this whole thing. Two seconds ago she was a tiny helpless little baby, and now she’s sitting in art class coloring with markers. Time is just going by too fast!
