I gave him a piece of paper and showed him how the markers worked
( Thank Goodness everything is washable)
I did most of the lines on that piece of paper with ball like markers. (the baby beginner kind) To Nathan these ball like markers are just that, a ball. So I really shouldn't have been surprised when he attempted to bounce them. I skipped that step and went straight for regular markers.... Of course they go in his mouth because that's what he does with all non-food items.
Then he decided he was all done... until...
he remembered how fun it was to chew the pen
(check out the marks on his face and down his neck)
New bright yellow piece of paper makes it more interesting. Hey and this pen is a different colour. I'm thinking this is pretty facinating.
So, Mommy drew a crazy happy face and she used this pen to do it... hhmmmm
I'm gonna try with two and see what happens...
Ohhh wow.. Look at this.. This is how Mommy showed me.
I'm enjoying drawing!
I put his drawing in our dining room for all to see. I am so proud of Nathan. I wasn't sure he'd even be interested but he sure surprised me. I can't wait to do more with him!
