It's still very, very early, but so far, Gavin does not seem to have a hankering for art. Today, I tried giving him round washable crayons, but he wanted to throw them like a ball. Then, I tried crayons that are shaped like triangles for easier grip, but I promise for literally 15 minutes straight he entertained himself by putting them in the box and then taking them out- repeatedly. No joke- 15 minutes! And here's the proof. Pretend it's in video format.
I love that chubby hand.
Notice the intense look of concentration.
And you know what? It really doesn't matter if he is an amazing artist like his daddy or can barely draw stick figures like his mommy, Gavin is fearfully and wonderfully made.
