Annikah and I were in the dining room and she was happily coloring with her markers on constrcution paper while I was studying my language flashcards. I left the room for just about 30 seconds to get some water from the kitchen and I returned to this:

She was very proud of her creation and I let her keep at it knowing a bath was in her near future. She was simply amazed at how cool it is to color oneself. Why had she not thought of this before? After she had colored herself to her contentment I grabbed the camera and started taking pictures. She then said over and over again “show Grandma that.” So I had to post a video for both Grammys’ as apparently Anni wants to show you her creative self expression.

reaching up to the heavens…oh my work is glorious

    I love reading your entires! This one is super cute. I had a similar experience involving me coloring my entire body and my mom finding me “passed out” on the bed asleep naked. She was soo freaked out! But then she realised what had happened. haha. Maybe Anni will be an artist hobo like me and live in a mud hut! hehe. The world can only hope…Tell Jason I enjoyed the pics of his stupid human tricks. šŸ˜‰ Even though you're feeling sad about Anni's growing up into a little girl, I want to tell you that you both are doing a dang fine job at raising her!! <3
