Jada Finger Paints

Jada has discovered finger painting and has embraced it in all of it's freedom. She finger paints to play. She finger paints to entertain, inviting Ryan to join her when he stops by. She finger paints to occupy herself when I'm cooking. She practices writing her letters and happy faces in broad strokes. She finger paints to "make hands", her favorite new trick.

When Jada paints I realize that she is a bona fide toddler, "a big girl", autonomous, expressive and growing up fast. It's bittersweet.
