Arty Pants

There has been a big interest in art projects lately in our household. Every day there is some new creation going on from salad spinner "spin art" with his friends, collages and free drawing, and even to visit museums. It has been fun to see Soren's drawing progression, with him creating more recognizable figures and heads and the stories that go with them.

Even Sevi loves to get in on the art action

Soren's magazine collage

A drawing Soren made of him and papa biking on the tag-a-long. They had just returned from their first "Spring" ride.

Soren's first family portrait. Yup - there are 5 with two Soren heads. Nothing like the art ego......

Mr. Turtle and The Dragon

With winter just not wanting to loosen it's grip quite yet, we have had to get a bit creative on our continued snow play. We made snow animal sculptures and colored them with our favorite snow painting method: food coloring in spray bottles.

Entering....... Toddlerhood

Sevi has entered a new stage; full blown frustrated toddlerhood. He either wants his independence or is at my heels wanting to be up in my arms. I can't leave the room without returning to find him climbing up on some object or getting into some drawer, cupboard or Soren creation. I feel like my days are full of intervention. I am just waiting for his first word beyond "Mama" to be the big NO.
