like her sister before her, the bean has become addicted to a cute little preschool age-appropriate show called "blue's clues." it's pretty funny - when she wants to watch it (which is all.the.freaking.time.), she grabs the remote, puts it in my hand, makes the hand gestures they do during the show, and exclaims "boo!" i guess you have to see it to appreciate it.
but we only have two episodes on the tivo, and let me tell you, i am really stinking tired of them. the show only comes on once a day, so it's hard to catch it unless i remember to set the dvr to record it. i know i could set a season pass, but i don't wanna. but here's what you get when you try to explain to a 20-month-old that her favorite show isn't on at the moment:
you finally give in and turn the damn show on, and you're rewarded with a smile, a hug, and complete silence:
she actually only likes the parts where they sing the familiar songs. in between those, we usually grab the bubble bucket. i don't know why, but she seems to think the bubbles are tasty.
then she decides to give it a try her own self:
i actually really get a kick out of watching her try to do this.
she eventually gets bored with it and decides to get her bubble on the easy way.
a little later, she decided to veg out in the bedroom and watch the tv in there (as though what's playing in there is any different):
she found an old friend in her toy box:
she's also learned a bunch of animal noises. when you ask her "hey, what does the [insert random critter here] say?" she'll grin and make the appropriate sound, or some reasonable facsimile. i've gotta get it on video soon, because it's awesomely funny - dog, cat, elephant, lion, monkey, rooster, cow, sheep.
man, i've gotta get my hands on that freaking flip videocam.
