Simon crawls very well now and can also pull himself up to standing. However, he still lacks the agility necessary to commit crimes. That's where his accomplice, Gilly, comes into the picture. They have learned to utilize Gilly's safe-cracking ability, and Simon's bloodhound-like nose to access and detect high-value targets in the refrigerator.

Yesterday's target: leftover apple pie from Easter dinner.

Lyn couldn't bring herself to intervene because it was so cute. She grabbed the camera instead :-)

Don't Put That In Your Mouth

We frequently (constantly, it seems), have to tell Gilly to stop putting things in her mouth. If it's something gross or some sort of biohazard, we tell her "don't put that in your mouth, it will make you sick!"

We planned to go visit Lyn's family on Sunday, but both Grammy and Pops have the cold/flu/something-nasty, so we decided to wait until next week. Last night, Lyn told Gilly that we wouldn't be going to visit them on Sunday, and explained to her that they were "sick."

To which Gilly replied, "what do they have in their mouths?"

Gilly had two of her friends from the neighborhood over for a visit. Simon was vastly outnumbered.

Hugs . . .

and a short video of the girls dancing . . . I think.

Museum of Science

A couple of pictures from the Montshire Museum of Science.

Gilly checking out the reptile bones

Simon playing with the golf balls at one of the physics exhibits (and reportedly, admiring himself in the mirror)

Split Brain Behavior

OK, this is a little bit random, but I thought it was very interesting.

Also pretty cool (possibly a little creepy?), and related to split brain behavior, is Alien Hand Syndrome. Weird . . .
