Tending Bar

Sibyl took charge of the beverages at her birthday party.


First Birthday

Originally uploaded by jkollmer2
This week Sibyl celebrated her first birthday with her cousins in Ohio.

The whole family came over for a fun afternoon, complete with Dr Seuss cake.

Sibyl thought the cake was lip-smacking good, but her cousin Seth really got into the spirit of the event.

Princess Skirt

Sibyl's mom couldn't resist making her a princess tutu.

Like any fine lady, Sibyl has to practice her accomplishments (deportment, languages and music).

Sibyl's developing a new appreciation for Paris through three lovely Madeline books that arrived this weekend.

While we're pretty clear she doesn't get the subtext of the Bad Hat (the naughty son of the Spanish ambassador living next door), she sure likes the girls, Miss Clavel, and Genevieve, the dog who saves our heroine in Madeline's Rescue. She's also really into the meter and rhyme scheme of all three books. (We are talking about a child who literally dances to the first two pages of It's Tu B'Shevat: "Grab a shovel/Pick a spot/Plant a tree/It's Tu B'Shevat!" Seriously. Rhyming gets major bonus points in Sibyl's world these days.)

Thanks, Aunt Alisha and Uncle John!

New Wheels

Why walk when you can ride in style?


Thanks, Nana and Grandpa Charlie!

The Owl and the Pussycat

Sibyl's finally got the motor control, not to mention the self control, needed to flip through big-girl books by herself. Here she's checking out a favorite, The Owl and the Pussycat.


Catch the "Pffft" noises she makes for the piggy-wig.
