This is a place where I'd like to comment on some of my favorites of the week. They might be my favorite story about J from the week, my favorite blog posts, also things that are J's favorites or anything else that just really stood out from the week.
J's favorite animals have been a blend lately of elephants and dinosaurs. He became infatuated with elephants after seeing parts of The Jungle Book and now we found some elephant figures he loves to play with. He has a couple larger ones and one tiny one, which he calls the baby elephant.
One animal added into the mix this week is the owl. Daddy read him a book that had an owl in it and since then he is excited about owls. Daddy taught him how to hoot like an owl and he'll do this anytime you ask him (see video below). We also got some owl books from the library that he likes to read. He keeps saying the owl is scary and I think I've figured out he got that from the book Stellaluna, a book that he loves where the fruit bats in the book are chased by an owl.
A friend of mine recommend this to me and I really love them but J does too. They're called Little Einsteins. Did I say I really like them? If I'm going to let J watch anything, it's videos. We don't have cable (thank the Lord or I'd be in major trouble) and I really don't watch much on TV. The Little Einsteins video we got from the library was Our Big Huge Adventure. There is a real focus on the arts, particularly music and now I find myself singing their intro song.
Another one that he really likes is called The Big Race (Rainbow Valley Heroes).
