Kirby’s first painting

First toddler painting

I am so happy to show you this masterpiece today! Kirby’s first ever painting!

I’ve been meaning to set Kirby up with paints for a while now, but life has kept getting in the way. This morning the timing was finally right, so I stripped him down to his nappy and let him play. And he sure  gave it a good go.

To start off with I only gave him a couple of colours, and just his hands to paint with. He totally rejected the yellow, but asked for the green. And as soon as he saw Aoife using a brush he wanted a tool of his own too, so gave him an old brush and a glue spreader.

    Do hope little Aoife is going well after your rush to the doctors with her… that sounds a bit scary…
