24 Weeks!

Happy Almost the End of March!

The other day Jacob was lamenting that his marker died so he couldn't make notes on the bathroom mirror.

I wanted to impress him with the fact that I had a BRAND NEW marker in my purse that I had bought just that day for school.

so I stood next to him as he eeked out a list, and I began to draw my outline on the mirror.

I even added hair, lips and eyes.

and kind of liked it!

So I drew an arrow that said: 6 MONTHS.

We got a kick out of it and I asked for it not to be erased for a few days so I could snap a photo.

Sunday night I couldn't fall asleep and stayed up thinking about school... Jacob went to bed early without me.

Monday morning I was REALLY lamenting getting up early after a beautiful spring break...

At six am I drug myself to the bathroom and sat... with my eyes closed.. willing the day to be already over.

When I opened my eyes- what I saw made me laugh harder than I have EVER laughed in the morning.

Jacob had left me a little treat... His version of my outline...

I'm concerned about a conspicuous lack of detail in Jacob's piece of artistry. Is the drawing anatomically correct?
