The Genius of Baby Einstein

If you had asked me last week if Sophie liked to watch Baby Einstein, I would've told you no. Her Daddy would occasionally put it on for her and she would watch it for about thirty seconds before she was bored and looking for something else to do. But on Saturday when we needed to do some work around the house, I began thinking how nice it would be if she would do something that didn't require Momma or DaDa for a little while. I know that sounds horrible. I do not plan to sit her down in front of the TV for hours on end while I do what I want. But you moms out there know that it is nice to have something to divert your child's attention off of you at times.
So, seeing as she was at least a month older than when we last tried Baby Einstein, I stuck in "Baby DaVinci" and plopped her down on the floor in front of the TV. The scene that unfolded was priceless. She was absolutely enthralled. For the next twenty minutes, Sophie sat in front of the tube and stared with wide eyes at the screen. She especially loved the scenes with the puppets, and would intermittently bounce and wave her arms at the television screen, proclaiming her love in little babbles.
This is a short clip of Sophie's video session. My favorite thing about this video is the sweet little picture of her CHUBBY face. Sophie has the best cheeks in the universe of babies (sorry to my friends who have their own little butterballs)!!

In other Tyson news, we had our first viewing of the house today. I was a little disappointed because I really wanted to bake something before the viewing so there would be a "homey" aroma hanging about. But, alas, we didn't find out about the viewing until about 10 minutes before we left for Capitol Hill. There has also been another person who has contacted our realtor showing interest in seeing the house.

Please be praying for us that one of these families would fall in love with our beautiful house - it would be so great to have this taken care of before we move or soon after!

She is SO precious. I love the cheeks! Remember the cheeks D had on her when she was a baby?! :)

Don't forget to do something besides watching her when you put a video in for her.

I also tried to leave cookies or muffins out for whoever was coming as a snack with a little note hoping they enjoyed seeing our house.

Thanks for the sweet comment! It has been such a long time...I think close to 3 years! Crazy.
Sophie is the cutest thing I've ever seen! Ummm, she needs to be a Gerber baby or something. :)

Aleeyah actually still enjoys watching those movies.
