My Little Artist

When Jacob was little, like 18 months to 3 or 4 years old, he wanted NOTHING to do with coloring.  If you DID give him crayons at 18 months or 2 years, he would put them in his mouth.  Mm-hm.  So he was a very late bloomer as far as coloring and drawing.  I remember seeing the twin girls of friends of mine at about 3 1/2 coloring in coloring books just PERFECTLY and I was like, um...okay!
I know there is usually a difference in boys and girls and coloring, but this was a HUGE difference.  But then of course, my child was adding fractions, so hey.  I wasn't complaining.

Very recently, Jacob has taken an interest in drawing. (AND he now colors inside the lines!  Which he is ONLY allowed to do in coloring books.  In life?  NO WAY!)

So I thought I'd share (MOM) some of his drawings.  Enjoy.
His first parrot.  The things on the left are food and water holders.
Jacob's FAVORITE things to draw:  Dinosaurs!
One of my favorites...The T-Rex isn't trying to shake hands (what it looks like to me)...and the red one is a Triceratops.
