Upside down, but Selah drew a few pages of hearts after putting too much food in the goldfish tank...it was a 'love you Mummy', 'love you Daddy' expression after being timed out.
Selah's drawings are getting alot more complex and detailed :)

Here's Selah making up a song on the spot. She has a crazy sense of humour!

Selah's writing is coming along...this is her busy writing unattended. She can mostly write her name so that I can recognise her art at kindy.
The above is a picture of Daddy doing the dishes. The sun is out and there are some spots of rain also (yes that is happening alot in Auckland of late). The swirls are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
This is a picture of a one-eyed giant with Sinbad and other captives on the island where there are gold nuggets all of the island. Sinbad and the others are trying to escape.

Selah loves the new baby in the house so much she cries sometimes when she has to pass her back to her Mum..."I want my own baby now" she cries!

This is the puppy house Selah made - there is a cot for the puppy, the feather is carpet, the tv was on fire because the squirrel ate the cord, fireman sam squirted the fire out...lots of detail, partly captured on video but obviously more detail as she drew.

Selah biked for half an hour with lots of kids from kindy. She cruised along and got faster and more confident with time. She definitely enjoyed the approval of teachers, and was frequently distracted looking at the babies in buggies. She said today when she grows up she wants her ears pierced and 6 babies...

Selah loves life and experiencing day to day things with her is great as as an adult because the simplest of things are amazing. I stopped working outside today to take her a black and yellow ladybug (which is now in her bug collector and is named 'Helen'). I lay with her this afternoon and drew a mermaid a merman, a mermaid baby, a mermaid sister and a mermaid brother. If I didn't have her I wouldn't have noticed the bug apart from sweeping it off me probably, and I definitely wouldn't have been colouring in!

Selah predicted before we went to the Chinese New Year celebrations that she would see dragons and have candyfloss. I don't know what would have happened if those didn't eventuate, but thankfully we saw dragons perform and she spotted candyfloss on our way out. I remember Dad buying me candyfloss at a circus that came to Foxton. I hope Selah remembers these good bits of growing up too!
