Ava Thursday: Ezra asleep in carseat
Click for a closer look.
Ava drew this cute little scene last week in the car. Ava was bored and didn't know what to draw while we were in the car, just after lunch. I suggested that she draw Ezra, who was asleep in his carseat right next to her. I didn't really think she'd take me up on my suggestion, but she immediately began to look over at her brother, and then doodle with her red pencil.
By this point, I was being dropped off at work (I usually do lunch with my family, we live so close to Primal). While at work, Andrea called me about 10 minutes later and said, "You should see what Ava drew. It's really interesting."
And she was right. What a fun drawing! This is Ezra sleeping in his carseat (note the 'zzzz's'), while Ava pokes her head in from the right, singing him a song. I love how she's drawn herself only half in the frame, complete with a big smile. And how Ezra is sitting there, with the seatbelt keeping him safe. That's a teething rattle next to him, obviously drawn not to scale. (I tried to find a pic of this same rattle to show you how amazingly detailed Ava drew it, but could not find anything online.)
Ava loves her little brother so much. She's very good with him and tries to help out mommy as much as she can. When I look at this drawing, it shows to me what a great relationship she has with Ezra.
