When she visited Columbus, Sibyl joined her cousins on a trip to the Center of Science and Industry. One highlight of the trip was the water room, where they provide raincoats (but you still need a spare set of dry clothes at the ready).

Helping Auntie Karen

Today Sibyl and her mom spent the afternoon hanging out with Auntie Karen while she did some Sunday cleaning. Sibyl couldn't resist the comforter heaped on the floor.

Auntie Karen couldn't resist, either.

Swimming Party

Sibyl's playgroup met in Rosie's backyard this week for some splashing fun. Sibyl even climbed in for some wading.

Sibyl has been enjoying her Nana's videos of Leora very much, and while Leora's hearty endorsement of peas keeps Sibyl's attention, another video has won her over completely:


Pool Party on the Deck

San Francisco is enjoying one of the glorious summer weekends that appear randomly from April to October, and Sibyl took a break from a busy slate of park visits to lounge poolside on the deck.

Give This Girl a Hard Hat

The Discovery Museum has, of all things, a gravel pit.



Somebody likes the swings.

Excellent well, you are a fishmonger.

A Room of Her Own

Originally uploaded by jkollmer2
She may not have five hundred pounds a year yet, but Sibyl made a great move to independence this week, moving into her very own room.

She's got a little space to play, sunshine when she wants it, and a very dark curtain for sleeping in.

Do a Little Dance


Birthday Parties

Originally uploaded by jkollmer2
Sibyl's friends Max and William had back-to-back birthday parties this weekend, and Sibyl was delighted to be on their guest lists.

At Max's Friday evening party, Sibyl demonstrated new and creative ways to wear a dress.

At William's party Saturday afternoon, she made new friends and had a blast playing with her playgroup pals.

She even took a few turns in the bouncy house with the big kids.

A New Game

At the playground today, Sibyl invented a game with nuts from the eucalyptus trees.


Within a few minutes, two older kids had joined her.

Watching Leora

Keep in mind that this was shot after she'd seen this (favorite) video five times that night. Yet, she's still enthralled.
