Monkey Boy

It's been awhile since I've blogged because our camera broke. Talk about bad luck. So Daniel's mom let us borrow hers until we can afford to get a new one. Now I really have an excuse to buy one of those nice fancy cameras. Anyways, our little monkey is growing so fast. Here are just some pictures to recap all that has been happening in the past two months. (And by some, I mean very few...remember the broken camera...)

Talmage is eating so well. Lately he has been teething and doesn't want to eat solid food as much, but he's getting really good at picking little bits of food up with his little hands and putting it in his mouth.
He's also gotten good at picking things off the floor and putting them in his mouth too...which means we have to vacuum pretty regularly. Good thing our vacuum is also broken. Ha ha. I guess when it rains, it pours. This is just the time that a lot of our things are broken.

Talmage loves playing with other kids. Especially his cousins. I'm so grateful he has three other cousins so close in age. They are so fun to watch.

Our little monkey is also crawling and climbing on anything he can. I'm pretty sure he's going to be an early walker. I love that he can crawl now because it keeps him entertained for longer. Also, if he wants me, he'll crawl over to me. 

Talmage also loves to climb up on things to stand (or climb up on Daniel and I and stand). He is usually pretty fearless, which means we have to keep a close eye on him so he doesn't go head first over something. He gets cuter and cuter everyday. He started to get in the bad habit of turning over when we are trying to lay him down on his back to change his diaper or his clothes. We call him the "Runaway Nakie."

Talmage is starting to make different sounds, which is always fun to listen to. He also can get really excited when he knows he's accomplished something, or he knows he's about to eat. I think it's adorable. Some of his other favorite things include playing with any electrical cords, trying to eat phones and remotes, taking glasses off daddy's face, sucking on draw strings on clothing, giving kisses, and smiling. Talmage also loves when daddy gets home. It's pretty ridiculous how excited he gets to have dad around. :) I'm happy that that is how it is.

In other big fantastic news, Daniel graduated! We are all so proud of him and all the hard work he has put in this semester to get the grades he needed to get into the U's graduate program. We haven't heard back from the U yet, but I'm pretty sure he is in!

This is how Talmage was at graduation. Stunned into paralysis. He had NO idea what was going on. Poor kid.
Congratulations Daniel! I know that more good things are to come and I can't wait for more years together with you.

Now that I have a working camera, hopefully I'll blog more. Hopefully, being the key word.
