Lillian made her first painting last week. I couldn't post the pictures any earlier because the painting was a gift for Pop Steve's birthday.

I bought a couple of small canvases from Michael's. I stripped Lillian down to her diaper and put her in the empty bathtub with a canvas and two paper plates with paint.

She really liked the blue paint, she'd paint blue with her whole hands. She wasn't so sure about the red, she was really careful to just lightly dip one finger in.

Once she decided the red wouldn't kill her, she really got into it. She painted with her feet just as much as with her hands.

She also figured out how to splatter paint - clapping her hands made interesting patterns on her as well as the bathtub and me.

The aftermath

So cute! I love that she loves blue - it's my favorite color, too! Cool idea with the blank canvas from the craft store.
