Recently, Ikaika went from "I don't like coloring" to "give me those crayons - NOW!" He's filling in the spaces more completely and using a variety of color (which he didn't do before).
He's also drawing faces and representations of people. I was told these two are Autobots (the second one is Optimus Prime).
I'm so excited that he's more into drawing and coloring now. Not only does it keep him quietly occupied, it's also getting him ready for writing. He can write a legible "I", but he struggles with diagonal lines so he can't quite do his whole name, yet.
