10-3-2011 For this EDM I drew the stuffed monkey, toucan and frog from the rotating top of my daughters swing. At some point in the near future she won't have a need for the swing and we will be giving it away to a new baby family. It's sad to watch her baby items go. She's 10 months old and much of her clothes have been her 3 yr old sister's as well. I try to focus on their achievements like one counting to 10 and the other starting to let go of furniture to walk. Sometimes when I look at them napping I remember the late night feedings, the first smiles and even the first couple days when they were new at the hospital. My oldest daughter is 16 yrs and I know where this is going. I'm on both sides of this motherhood trip. There isn't much time for sadness. I drew the objects in cool grays it seems to fit the overall mood. The shadows are warm grays to give it dimension.
