Documentation for when my brain goes . . . The combination of two family reunions, mountains, air-conditioning, and the hanging out with family all day brought us to the motherland for half the summer. It's been splendid and nothing is so heartwarming as the boys with all their kin. Simeon:I know, I know, pictures at last. Isn't that classic of Simeon? Thanks Becca! Simeon has taken a few steps the past couple days. I suppose we should keep our grainy camera handy the next couple weeks to capture those early Frankenstein steps. Simeon's facial features upon reaching Utah appeared to have been paralyzed into a perpetual glare. He made a remarkable effort to keep it that way, but let's face it, with such constant loving attention from grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, he didn't stand a chance. He now shyly smiles, chortles, and laughs more than ever.
