Talmage enjoys certain types of fruit--but only if they measure up to his criteria. Apples must be exactly crispy enough, watermelon must be crisp, juicy, and sweet, bananas must be slightly green, strawberries and grapes must be firm, and the list goes on. He will often reject pieces of fruit and ask for different ones in hopes that they will be more appealing to him. Here he is enjoying a crispy apple.
He does a pretty good job with a whole apple, but doesn't care for slices very much.
And as a side note, here is one of Talmage's drawings from a few weeks ago. It is actually turned sideways (tilt your head to the left to see it the right way), but you get the idea. It just cracks me up how he doesn't scribble, but meticulously writes letter-like symbols all across the page. He definitely watches what we do and tries to imitate it!
