Holding his own bottle just before bed:
He has gotten to be so good at twisting around to see behind him while he's sitting up! I was doing laundry last week, and I was probably about 40-50 feet away, in a completely different room from Talmage. When I turned away I could see his face just staring at me, his body twisted around. He always has to keep us in sight! It's just too cute.
Just sitting, playing, being cute...
As a side note, he LOVES giving kisses and has gotten quite violent about it. He will grab my hair, cheeks, neck, clothes, jewelry, ears, or just about anything he can and yank my head down to his open, slobbery mouth to plaster kisses on my face all day long. He will absolutely claw at my face if he can't reach it. It gives me scratches and a sore face and head, along with a very sticky face covered with slobber...and yet I think it's the best thing ever. I guess that's what happens when you're a mom, huh? :)
And yesterday we were in the car going to pick Sam up from school, and Talmage kept jabbering, "Dada, dada, dada" over and over! It is the cutest thing!!! This morning he saw Sam and said, "Dada," too! Once again, we're still working at getting him to say it on demand, but whether he quite gets what he is saying or not, we'll happily take it!
