A Baby Einstein Surprise!

Tonight we introduced Aidan to Baby Einstein. Well, technically he all ready knows Baby Einstein. He plays with a few of their toys and is familiar with the musical aspect. But, tonight he discovered their DVDs. Awhile back I received a freebie "preview" of the DVD in the mail. It has segments from 3 of the different DVD's for babies. I didn't know if Aidan would be interested or not. It's for 3+ months and he is 10 weeks. He occasionally looks at the TV when it's turned on, but he is definitely not captivated by it. But, we decided to give it a shot.

Jason, him and I cuddled up on the couch and watched as the colorful puppets, nature scenes, babies and toys danced across the screen. Aidan was enthralled. He could not take his eyes away from all of the "action."

He smiled, laughed, cooed, talked, kicked and squealed with delight as the different objects appeared before him. Jason and I could not believe it. He has never taken to something like this before other than his lion mobile over his changing area.

We decided we will watch this with him every night before he goes to bed. We'll incorporate it into his nightly routine. After his bath and before mommy dances and sings him to sleep to the Jewel "Lullaby" CD. (Get it, it's a lifesaver!)

For now we'll put off buying an actual DVD. I don't think he'd be able to sit through it. But, this is just the right length for him- about 15 minutes.

This is one of the things I love best about being a parent. Finding out what excites him, watching him explore new things, and seeing him recognize the familiar.

What a gift.
