Talmage has really gotten into drawing lately. He absolutely loves it! Unfortunately, I have cleaned up more than one mess of scribbling on the wall, but slowly he's learning that drawing is for paper and Sam and I are learning to keep pens and pencils far out of his reach. :)
He holds the pen in the cutest way! Instead of clutching it with his fist as expected, he always holds it with his thumb, first, and middle fingers:
It's a great source of entertainment! He stood at the couch in this position for 5-10 minutes drawing and talking up a storm.
In these pictures he's a lefty--we'll see if that holds out. Both Sam and I are right-handed, but unless I'm mistaken both of Sam's parents are left-handed.
