Backdated post: QQ was 3yo at that time .
Nowadays when HQ does homework at Popo's home, QQ wants to do the same too. Initially she did only colouring. Popo drew, QQ coloured. Look at my mum's cute drawings. QQ's coloring (with crayons) was quite neat for starters. These are her early works :-)HQ drew these bugs for QQ to colour... do you know what are they? :-). Then she started drawing... this is her first self portrait. She drew the face and hair with our directions, and I drew the body and limbs :-).
After awhile, she begin requesting to do writing as well. So, Popo wrote some numbers with pencils for her to trace using magic pens. Popo was very surprised that she followed the markings well. I must say she has a very good control over her pencils. Not bad for a first timer!
Mum said QQ can even loop the number "8" correctly. When mum told me, I just had to see it for myself. Here's a little video that I captured, taken on 21 August 2010. (Please ignore the background voices)
Right now, she can recognise all alphabets except J. And she writes 1, 0, A and C on her own (without tracing). I just hope that her interest in colouring and writing will last.
