    Are you sure that last one isn’t a Picasso reproduction? I love it. And did notice that everyone in your family does clearly have a navel.

      I was shocked when I saw his latest portrait. Such a huge leap! I think I have to sign him up for some art classes!

      It’s funny to look back at our early drawings, isn’t it?

    Love that focus on the belly button. What a great collection! Truly something to treasure. Ever thought of making a photo book of his artwork?

      I have thought about that. I figure that it would be a lot easier to keep his art versus all those millions of drawings and papers! Thank you Nechama.

    How sweet! I love the HUGE smiles on everyone’s faces. A sign of a happy child in a happy family. It is surprising how quickly they go from stick figures to detailed drawings, isn’t it? Love watching them grow and their drawings and writing along with them.

    So glad you linked up with Mama Kat today!!!

      Thanks Tamara. The huge smiles are my favorite part too. Whenever I think that I’m failing in my parenting, I take comfort in the fact that we’re all still smiling in his drawings! :-)

      The smiles are the best! I love that he thinks of me as smiling even though I know that I don’t always smile all that much :-)

    These are the best! I also love how you have a square mid-section under the round belly in the one picture. I hope you keep these somewhere–I am so bad about that and now I regret it.

      I know – the square mid-section and round belly is awesome. Not sure what that says about my physique :-) As you know, kids are prolific in their artistic creations. We’re trying to keep what we can.

    Thanks! I haven’t seen scary mommy for a long time and that was hilarious! I never thought of taking pictures of their drawings–fantastic. My walls are also covered in artwork. Maybe I can get some wall space back…..hmmmmmmmm

      I figured that taking pictures of their drawings is a bit more manageable than the piles and piles of drawings! I tried taking some of their drawings down but they quickly created more and stuck them back up on the walls. Prolific young artists!

      It’s so fun when they start drawing real drawings and seeing their imagination explode.

    So adorable! I just had a parent teacher conference last night with my kids teachers and she was so great at explaining all of the details about child development and how to analyze a pictures… these drawings say so much about your amazing little man. The Scary Mom post was hilarious!!!

      I know, I totally want to psychoanalyze the drawings but I’m trying to resist the urge and just appreciate it for what it is. It is pretty amazing to see his imagination and creativity explode. And I love that Scary Mommy post. I go back to it whenever I need a laugh.

    You have a real artist there. I love all of the pictures. I think this Christmas when I am there I will ask my grandson to draw a picture.

      I hope you do ask your grandson to draw you a picture. My son’s face lights up when I ask him to draw me something.

      You’ll have so much fun when your two start drawing. Seriously, his drawings have totally changed since he started Kindergarten this fall.

    That last one is very Picasso-esque. Hold on to it, it may be worth $$ some day!

    I too love watching the evolution of my children’s drawing abilities; the psychology student in me loves to ponder how the changes in what’s emphasized in the drawings reflect what’s going on cognitively, emotionally and socially with the child….

    Thanks so much for sharing these Christine!

      I totally want to psychoanalyze the pictures!! I’m definitely holding on to that last one. My husband got jealous and asked Jasper to draw his portrait too!

    One day I will have to scan in some of the portraits my kids have drawn!
    I love your lashes by the way!

    And the big bellies? That’s all of the great “prana” you guys have :)

      It kind of amazes me how all the details of the face have changed and improved – the eyes, nose, lips. Thank you for this fun prompt!
