Last night KayTar was sitting at the kitchen table with a pen and a notepad I brought
home from BlogHer. She called me over and said, "Look! I drew Spindella!" (a character from Sunny Patch, if you are unfamiliar) and I was shocked when I looked at it.
It was so accurate! Right down to the pointy nose. It only has five legs, but I think I excitedly snatched it from her before she got to the legs on the right side.
Then she drew another spider with all 8 legs.
Then she said, "I'm going to draw a car." And she did.
Initially it was just the half circle and wheels, but then she said, "I need to draw some windows."
Lastly, she drew this little submarine.
I was so surprised! Last time she drew me a picture (within the last couple weeks) it was just a roughly crafted face, and now here she is drawing these detailed little sketches that actually look like what she intends them to be. Lately it seems like everything comes to her in these short sudden bursts, one day something seems totally impossible and the next she is mastering it. It is such an amazing process to watch.
