Exploration

So sometimes you're just sitting around, playing with your toys.

You make some gestures to the big people around you, but they have no idea what you're getting at.


So you move on to something even better--


--the hole in your Pop's sock.


You consider taking up darning.


But decide instead to move on to better things.

After her mom covered the rails with safety netting, Sibyl wanted to check out the outside world of the deck. The most interesting thing she found was a collection of shells her parents and grandparents collected before she was born.

The shells make neat noises when they hit the concrete, plus they're shiny inside. They also taste like dirt, which is surely an added bonus.

Sibyl likes them just about as much as her mother does.

Woman of Letters

Sibyl has been enjoying her Nana's visit very much, and not only because Nana lets her do fun grownup things like type on the computer.

After Sibyl broke both the space bar and Ctrl keys, her Pop suggested she wait awhile before attempting a sequel.

Mobility

Now that she's mastered the scoot, Sibyl's got a new interest in everything around her.

Sometimes investigation turns into more of an attack--no object within reach is safe.



She can, however, be distracted by toys and books.


The nature cards her Aunt Joy gave her are coming in handy now--Sibyl loves how they're all different and bright.


All this exploring wears a girl out.

The Scoot

Not quite crawling, but getting there.
