Another Party

This week, Sibyl went to a second Halloween party with her playgroup friends. She even won the prize for the most creative costume.

The babies didn't let their costumes get in the way of playing. As far as they're concerned, dressing up as a pumpkin could happen every day.

This morning Sibyl discovered a new toy, a nifty old keyboard that makes cool clicking noises when she taps on it.

It works just as well upside down--Sibyl has her own version of ergonomics.

Much to her delight, it also makes cool noises when she pounds on it.

Halloween Party

For Halloween, Sibyl dressed up as a member of Team Zissou. She met her playgroup friends (three pumpkins, a monkey, a skunk, and a Tootsie Roll) at a party in the Presidio. She loved seeing her friends and had fun chewing on her rubber whale and ID card.

Even a brave shark wrangler like Sibyl can use the occasional bottle.

Team what? Who? These guys:

This week, Sibyl and her mom hosted playgroup. The babies had fun swiping each other's toys.

Kailer, Sibyl, and Liam checked out Mathias's book while CJ watched the chaos.

Fletch, Liam, and Liam (yep, there are two Liams) showed off their sitting prowess.

Sibyl went after Fletch's yummy pears. (Note that Fletch's mom, Marni, had already shared the pears with Sibyl--apparently she wanted even more!)

Big Basin

This week Sibyl and her parents spent the night camping at Big Basin, near Santa Cruz.

Sibyl particularly enjoyed playing with a flashlight lantern at 6 AM and a morning stroll through the redwoods.

Sibyl had so much fun hanging out in Mexico with her cousins, aunt Joy and uncle Dave, and Grammie.

She got to play in the pool and splash about on the beach just on the other side of the house.

Throughout the week, there were jokes that only she and Hope understood, and a few secret nods with Seth as well. The grownups were baffled, but what else is new?

Not Really Walking

Sibyl's discovered that she likes to "walk" around the room--you hold her up by her hands, and she does the rest.

Getting Up

Sibyl didn't do a lot of proper crawling in Mexico--hard tiles and bare knees encouraged a lot of scooting--but on her first day home, she was faster than ever, and always eager to explore. She also pulled herself up to her feet beside her bouncy chair a couple of times without any help.

During a little break from the bouncy chair, she figured she'd use those strong legs to help her mom unpack.
