A Few Funny Talmage Moments

Talmage is starting to get to the age where he is saying and doing really funny things on occasion. Here are some recent ones:

-Talmage was eating grapes just about as fast as I could wash them today. I said, "Are you a little grape head?" He said, "Yeah!" and then set a grape on the top of his head with a grin.

-We love playing "what comes next" with songs--especially Primary songs. I sang, "I looked out the window and what did I see?" and waited for Talmage to say, "Popcorn." Instead he got a sly smile on his face and said, "Bananas!"

-Talmage has a friend at Church named Jakob. (He also happens to be built just like Talmage and almost exactly a year older, so we get some great hand-me-downs! Thanks Diana!) Today we were listening to a CD and a song came on about how everyone needs a friend. Talmage started dancing around, singing in a high-pitched voice, "Friend...friend...Jakob...friend...Jakob!"

-I had to go to a Relief Society activity on Saturday morning while Sam needed to go to a court of honor for some young men in our ward. He took Talmage and then when they were going to go home he came in to say good-bye to me. Talmage was sitting on the floor, eating a muffin when he started saying, "Die! Die! DIE!" Come to find out, Sam had been talking to him about the Plan of Salvation on the way to the Church and started trying to explain what it was when someone dies. Apparently Talmage latched onto that word and randomly started hollering it at people!

-He will often play in his room for up to an hour before falling asleep for his nap. This sometimes means emptying his bookcase and messing around with his CD player. The other day I started hearing Mexican music playing through the baby monitor. He had somehow turned on the radio to that station and when I went down to fix it he was in his room dancing.

-His prayers are so cute. He insists on praying for anything and everything including: sugar, the vacuum, the Kindle, duckies, birds, penguins, flowers, circles, lights, uh-oh, airplanes, etc. He also says some really sweet ones like the Holy Ghost, prayers, Heavenly Father, Jesus, nursery, scriptures, church, etc.


  1. Talmage is just about the cutest, nicest, funniest boy I have ever known. Not including my other nephews and neice/niece.

  2. bananas - haha, that's a good one!

  3. I love that he was dancing to the Mexican music on the radio. And the bananas. :)

  4. What fun! Talmage is going to be a wonderful big brother.
