Uh Oh...

Uh Oh....that is all I have to say. Now we definitely need to baby proof this weekend! Talan just started crawling (well it seems like it anyways, it has been a couple weeks) and yesterday he pulled himself up onto the couch...on his OWN! Plus, he has gotten so fast at crawling that all I have to do is turn my head for a second and he is in the other room. Today he almost got into one of our potted plants...now that would have been disastrous! Here is a video of him pulling himself up onto the couch. I think it explains itself. Oh, and don't mind me and my annoying voice over, when I watch the videos back it seems like I am talking to a puppy or something!

Haha...now after I watched the video again, don't mind the TV in the background and my conversation with my mom on the phone either. Note to self; turn TV off and hang up the phone when trying to film your son in his momentous occasions. Anyways, I guess I didn't get any film of him pulled up on the couch either and now my camera is dead, but that gives me something to blog about tomorrow! I guess I am still new to this whole blog thing...but hey, I tried!

Carrots, Peas & Green Beans....OH MY!

Well, yesterday I decided to let Talan try to feed himself! He loved it. He just couldn't seem to get them into his mouth. He could grab it with his fingers, then on the way to putting it into his mouth it would fall into his palm and smash it all over his face. I think he got about 3 little pieces in there after all that work. He ended up making a mess of his high chair and the ground below it. Lets just say I was cleaning up mushy carrots and peas for about 20 minutes after he was done! I keep finding them too everywhere. Overall, though, I am proud of him....he is growing up so fast. Before I know it he is going to be using utensils!

Here are some pictures of his attempts to feed himself his lunch...

Welcome to Our Blog!

Hello Everyone,

I have decided to start a blog so that I can keep everyone updated on what is going on in our lives. I think it will be easier this way so that everyone can read at their own pace. I also think it will be a good way to document things in Talan's life because I am not good at keeping up on the Baby Book! I figure if I do this everyday (yeah right!) or every week at least then he will know when things happened.

He just started crawling last week! I can't believe how fast he is already. He is getting into EVERYTHING! I definitely need to start baby-proofing!

Oh yeah, in case you are wondering about the name of the blog. Well, Martin Family was taken so I went for the next best thing, "the-funky-bunch"....everyone calls Mark, "Marky Mark" so what goes best with that then the funky bunch!! Anyways here are some pictures of Talan crawling!
