Asked Thekla to put her coat on and looked over her shoulder at her easel, where she had TOTALLY WRITTEN HER OWN NAME.



She did this all on her own, never mentioned it to us. Okay, so she's still not discriminating between "A" and "H", but I'm still incredibly impressed.

She was continuing to scribble after putting her coat on, so we gave her a fresh sheet, and she promptly drew "herself":



I asked what the little lines under the face were and she said they were her feet. Now, when I was a kid I subscribed to Cricket magazine, which had reader-submitted drawings in the back of every issue. The ones of people from the 3-year-olds always were of a head with legs, and I always wondered why. Years later, I read an article that said that very young children always draw people as heads-with-feet and only start adding bodies and arms when they're 4 or so. So I guess Thekla is right on schedule with her representational art. :-)
