All Smiles

Daniel and I love our little munchkin. He smiles so much and we love it! He has such a personality. I can't believe that this little spirit has changed our lives so completely.

Talmage loves his dad (which I've mentioned before). I can't tell you how wonderful it is when Daniel comes home and plays with our little man and I hear them both giggling and making other happy noises. Recently, Talmage has been making "da da da" and "ma ma ma" sounds. He also likes to play kick the empty milk carton with Dad.

 This next picture makes me laugh. I wasn't feeling too good one day so I watched Talmage play by himself while I rested on the couch. He started to get into his diaper bag and pulled out a tissue. Now, being a mom I knew I should have just taken it away, but I was just too tired. I thought that if he showed signs of trying to eat it, then I would take it away. So first he ripped it to shreds...and then he stuffed the whole pile in his mouth.

 Talmage has REALLY goofy smiles. Like really. But it is so endearing and wonderful to see his whole face light up when he smiles so goofy-like.

I started buying Bountiful Baskets (love it!) and one week there were beets in our basket (yuck?). Anyways, my clever sister made a soup out of the beets and potatoes, so I thought I'd try it too. Talmage loved it! So we had fun with our purple/pink soup. If you look close you can see his big front tooth coming in on the top. Our poor babe is getting a lot of teeth coming in.

 Talmage loves to play in the dishwasher. I have to wait until he goes to sleep to do the dishes anymore otherwise he will crawl over, fast as lightening, and try and grab and crawl all over it. I think he looks just like his cousin in this picture! It's amazing to me how the older he gets the more I think he looks like my family.

In other Spear news, Daniel was officially accepted into the U, and he got an internship for the summer! So we are trying to move out in the next couple of weeks. (AH!) But we have been so blessed. We're excited to move on to this next chapter of our lives.


  1. Man, I love this kid! What a cutie.

  2. He really is such a cutie - smiley babies are the BEST!

    Total side note - I LOVED Bountiful Baskets. They are great - it was always fun to try new things :)
