Wall Hanging

Originally uploaded by
Sibyl was very excited to receive a beautiful wall hanging from her Aunt Ellen. Rumor has it that her cousin Leora has one, too.

Sibyl can't wait to put it up on the wall in her room, which reminds her parents that they're planning to convert a walk-in closet into Sibyl's room soon.

Christmas Tree

For her first Christmas, Sibyl got to pick out her own tree from Target. Naturally, she went for silver foil with built-in lights.

Christmas started early this year, with the arrival of a walker/cart (or puppenwagen, as the German instructions called it) from Sibyl's Nana and Grandpa Charlie.

Clifford and Dogma have had a few rides around the room, as has Sibyl (only in public areas suitable for pedestrians, as per the instructions). She's figured out how to stand up alongside the cart herself and how to push it from behind, but not both at the same time.

Sibyl also inspected the tires, careful to avoid in den Rädern verfangen.

Sibyl Gets Mail

Originally uploaded by
Often books arrive in the mail for Sibyl's pop, and while their subject matter might be a little dense for a seven-month-old, they're often worth a good nibble. But things are much more exciting when Sibyl gets a book of her own.

Today she got a book her Nana made, called Raven. Sibyl was very excited to read the new book, a sequel to Worm and Mousie, featuring some of Sibyl's favorite toys.

Sibyl was so excited she tried to climb into the book.

Family Dinner

Originally uploaded by
Tonight Sibyl ate dinner with the family at the big table. She had little pieces of a rice cake while her mom and pop ate pizza. (Sibyl had sweet potatoes before the pizza was done.)

Sibyl's dinners are usually before Mom and Pop eat, since Sibyl's dinner is both messy and early. But eventually the plan is for everyone to eat together.

Now that she understands the idea of "finger food," Sibyl likes crunching on the rice cake bits, mushing them up, and generally making a mess. She actually swallows a little, too.
