Untitled, by Audrey

Audrey has become proficient in drawing circles and lines and, as a result, faces. Cognitively, she's right where she should be. Normally at the age of three, a child will identify with the head and the "face." They'll focus on the primary features, being the eyes and mouth. It isn't until later that they notice the nose, the ears, etc.

Also, right on schedule, is the representation of the "body," which is generally only the arms and legs. The absence of the arms isn't a surprise. 

The characters represented here are: (clockwise from left) Audrey, Thomas, me and Emaline. I also like the use of the fro-hawks.
