Creativity and representation

We introduced Teresa to Playdoh just 1 week ago and she's already started "making things" upon request, in imitation of things we make, and, now, completely of her own volition. I do not believe David or I have made an airplane for her, so this came right out of her head:

It had two little wings, which she described to me.

Her "drawing" with a pen is also becoming more purposeful; it looks more like tight squiggles than sprawling scratches. Yesterday she drew some big squiggles and little squiggles and called them mamas/papas and babies.
