Yesterday, while we were cleaning the playroom, Jamie amused herself by scribbling with a pen. Even though she’s not drawing anything in particular, you can see that she really enjoys the process. She grips the pen with precision and puts tremendous concentration into her drawing. Diana caught it on video:
Here’s a photo of one of the pages she scribbled on:
And here’s a photo of Jamie drawing, taken by Diana:
Here’s the funniest thing: Last night, while I was doing closing rounds, I went around the building to say goodnight to each of the chimpanzees. Jamie was laying on a bench in one of the front rooms, with blankets pulled up to her chest. But she wasn’t sleeping – she was drawing in bed! I felt like a parent that discovers their kid reading comic books in bed with a flashlight. Of course, Jamie can draw anytime she likes!
