More from Christmas, Round One


Dimitri Gets His Name


Thank you, Grammie, for Dimitri (the doll who can take a bath), and Aunt Leslie, Uncle Mack, and Julia for the bath toys. Sibyl, Dimitri, and the toys went straight into the tub first thing the next morning.

More Princess

Sibyl picked out a "party dress" for opening presents at home. Then she applied a few stickers. Then she got some beads in her stocking. Then came more princess stickers.

A Visit with Santa

The weather outside was anything but frightful, so Sibyl and her mom went for a walk to check out the neighbors' Christmas lights, including Tom and Jerry's house, the Castro's most amazing Christmas set up.


Sibyl did have a chat with Santa (with Mom--she didn't want to go up to him by herself), and he confirmed that she's been good this year, so things are looking pretty good for her stocking come Christmas.



Muppet Fans

Sibyl and Mildred enjoy a classic skit.

Playgroup Holiday Party

Today Sibyl's playgroup had their holiday party, giving their moms a chance to reflect on just how big these kids are now.

Sibyl's parents aren't completely clear on what she's doing with the rags, but it sure looks like an installation.



Yesterday, Sibyl's pop wrote "shoulders" on the Magnadoodle. Later, her mom erased it and wrote "knees." Sibyl erased that and drew this:

As she drew, she explained that it's "Head and shoulders, knees and toes," starting from the top.

The swirly part at the bottom right is "Eyes and ears and mouth and nose."

Watching Digraphs

Sibyl's parents may lose a few points for letting her eat supper in front of the computer, but sometimes they're big pushovers.

She Built It Herself

In the last week or so, Sibyl's figured out how to stack blocks.


Two Alphabets


Sibylese interpreters hear a clear "shin" and "gimel" early in this video, when Sibyl is looking at the dreidel. Sibyl's pop also reports that she had been reading the different names on the dreidel for a while before he grabbed the camera.
