Joni sent me this photo of Zibby using the round loom to knit at the conference.
Zibby was realllllly into it. I havent been over to the store yet to pick up any looms for ourselves, but maybe we can do that this week sometime.
We have been quite busy with all of our new schedule. Girl Scouts and Music Together were a lot of fun. A friend of mine is striking out on her own and doing kids classes, and I want to take her “pee wee drama class” with Zibby this spring.
Thought I would also do a little “milestone” update on Zibby.
She is 2.5 years and can count to ten, knows many colors, can jump and climb like crazy, and has a sort of somersault going.
She loves to sing and dance, and has a couple songs memorized, and remembers the refrains of songs, and many books. For instance, in the book “Mama, Mama” and “Papa, Papa” she knows the second half of each couplet on the page. She repeats sentences, and can tell jokes. She loves to help both me and Buzz with whatever we are doing, cleaning, cooking, starting the car….
and she still takes very good care of her dollies. She likes to talk on the phone, and likes to make pretend calls on her play phone. She often calls Mama Rachel, Mama Jackie, Uncle Eff, and Nana.
She likes her hair short, and her fingernails long.
She still loves sign language, and her current favorite signs are “play” and “I love you”.
Current favorite songs are “Hello Everybody” and the Leaves song from the Music Together CD.

Lately I’ve been into making ATCs
I even participated in a trade! One of the groups I am in has trades, and so, I sent in a batch of ten cards, and got ten back, made by other folks. Pretty cool, imo. There is going to be a IRL trade at the Live and Learn Conference this week, so I got inspired to make a big batch tonight. I was pretty pleased with the outcomes.
I am feeling really nervous and excited about the conference. We leave Wed am. One family I know from Chicago is going, so that will be cool. And I am really eager to meet alot of the people Ive been reading and writing with on the yahoo groups. I hope Buzz has a good time, too. I’ll tell all about it next weekFiled under Uncategorized | Comments Off
Buzz agreed to go on a field trip today. He claims that I tricked him, however, because I said we were going to the Chicago Botanic Garden, which implied that it was in Chicago, and not Glencoe or wherever the heck it is. Ha ha. But we went to Fuddruckers for dinner afterwards, so I think we are all square.
While we were there, we took the tram tour. If you can do this, please if at all possible get Dorothea (Dorothy?) to be your guide. She was a real character. Not to be missed. Ladies and gentlemen. Not to be missed. I am not sure why Zibby laid down in the pathway of the rose garden. A fit of pique, I guess. She is rather prone to fits of pique, in my estimation.all about the zibster, daily life, Field Trip!, photos | Comments (2)
