FC: Kaia's dabbles with art
1: Kaia, You are such a creative, imaginative and inquisitive lil' soul at this stage of your life... You dance and sing, enjoy picking flowers and rolling in the grass, you are fascinated by animals and you love to jump in puddles! I love to see how you view the world with such a sense of fun and adventure! You are beginning to create your own art and I have tried to collect it within these pages, so that in time, you too can see the world through your innocent toddler eyes .. and what a magnificent world it is... Love and kisses, Mummy xox
