Playgroup at the Discovery Museum

Originally uploaded by jkollmer2
Sibyl's playgroup met at the Discovery Museum in Sausalito, a fantastic place for little ones, with a few indoor playrooms where every corner had a fun activity.

The highlight of the visit (for Sibyl) was definitely the splash zone outside, where she and her friends got soaked playing with fish and frogs in a man-made stream.

The highlight of the visit for Sibyl's mom will appear in the next post.


The UI folks at Apple should be proud. They've designed an interface that an 11-month-old can use.


Yep, most of the photos she's looking at are of herself.

Does she say "bird," or are we just imagining it?

Sibyl Loves Disco

Sibyl and her mom spent Valentine's Day afternoon at Baby Loves Disco, a dance club for babies and toddlers.

Sibyl thought the lights were amazing, and even got down on the dance floor and kicked her feet around like the other kids were doing.

She loved grooving with her mom, who managed to hold a baby in one hand and a camera in the other for just a couple of blurry action shots.

It must be noted that out of scores and scores of kiddies, Sibyl was the only girl who was punk-rock enough to come dressed like Pat Benatar:

Animal Book

Sibyl's newest linguistic tool--pointing and prompting--hasn't curbed her love of books. The newest game is to point out things in a book, exclaim "Da!" and see what we have to say about it. The book of animal pictures is particularly good for the Da game.
