Tate drawing "big heads" in her bikini the other day.
She's into drawing lately, especially portraits of people. With each new one she adds more detail. It started out simple- just eyes, nose and mouth. Now she's getting creative and some people wear hats, have either spikey or curly hair. The best yet... severe wrinkles around the mouth, (I'm hitting myself for not taking a picture of that one!).
This is a portrait of me and Wyatt. He drew his own for her, and she drew me.
Let me explain, starting at the top of that cute dancing hotdog:
My eyes and nose at the very top. That's my open mouth in the center, and my ears are the circles off the side of my body. My arms stick out just below my mouth, and the two lower circles side by side just below my mouth are the twin boys in my belly. What looks like it could be something very mysterious in between my legs is just my belly button. Phew! No worries, she's not that good yet. Then my stick legs shoot out the bottom. The floating circle above my ear on the left is a pinecone.. falling on me.
I can't bring myself to let her erase it. It's too funny.
She's also made several portraits of what she thinks the twins are going to look like.
These two are her favorites, because they have spikey hair, and are wearing top hats. No, those aren't rainbows over their heads. Those are the top hats.
If you ask really nice, maybe she'll draw a portrait of you? It'll be like Christmas morning seeing what details she chooses to include. And by the way, I'll make sure she leaves out any severe mouth wrinkles. Not that you'd have any.
