I am not dead, nor being held hostage in a wifi-free zone, nor computerless, nor have I turned Amish and forsaken my electric ways, I am just a combination of tired, busy, lazy and busy. Did I mention busy?
The boys are 14 3/4 months old now. I can scarcely believe it. I'm not going to recount everything that has happened in my 5 month hiatus, but I'll give you a quick run down. Simon & Dexter are running ALL over the place ALL the time. They are starting to climb, successfully, onto things that they can then fall off of and cause themselves a great deal of bodily injury. Speaking of injuries, Linus injured his shoulder a few months back. it's healed now, but still pops. Also Dexter bashed his face and ended up with stitches in his lip. Simon is the only one who hasn't made an ER run. I always expected him to keep us in the ER since he's fearless and athletically geared. Shows what I know... Linus started crawling about 2 weeks after his birthday. It was slow going at first, but now he's a champ at it. He still hasn't pulled up to standing, but I think it will be fairly soon. He can stand up for about 2 minutes if you prop him against something sturdy. Simon & Dex can say several words and are very good at signing. Linus doesn't really talk, but has coupled sounds with a few signs. He says "baaaaay" when he signs baby, "ahhh" when he signs hat, etc. It seems these boys learn something new every single day. Their personalities are really blossoming. I love how they play and interact with each other. When Linus is fussy, Simon will pat his head and say "baaaby" really sweetly. It only makes Linus madder, but boy is it cute. :) When Dexter takes a toy from Simon he throws himself to the floor in a flump and cries like someone dear to him has died. Tonight Simon and Dexter were hugging and kissing each other and laughing about it. No matter if they're laughing or crying, hugging or fighting, these boys are the best of friends. I hope they always remember to stick together, thick or thin.

The boys LOVE Signing Time.
They were all fighting to sit on my lap when I got home from work.
