We have limited television time at our house. Staley usually gets to watch an episode of a cartoon or part of a DVD after her rest time. If Adelie wakes up during Staley's television viewing time, she generally watches whatever Staley is watching. A few weeks ago, Adelie got up from her nap and Staley was playing in the playroom. While giving Adelie her snack, I put on a Baby Einstein farm video. She LOVED it!! Since then, I've let her watch that video several more times.
Yesterday Adelie woke up from her nap after Staley had already watched her after-rest show. While carrying Adelie downstairs, I asked if she'd like to watch her 'cow movie'. She got excited and responded with "yesssss." I sat her on the couch and then went into the kitchen to grab her a snack before starting her movie. At that moment, Zach came down the stairs to see Adelie sitting patiently on the couch with no snack and the television not on.
Zach: (Surprised to see Adelie sitting calmly and patiently on the couch) "Adelie, what are you doing?"
Zach: "Oh, are you waiting to watch your cow movie?"
She may be a woman of few words (and animal sounds), but apparently that's all you really need.
