Learning videos

Right now Colin is watching one of those baby/toddler learning videos (like baby Einstein) - the ones where they have classical music and video of toys. This one also has foreign languages. Today, for the first time, Colin is repeating the words spoken. So my little buy is sitting on the couch speaking French, Spanish and Japanese, and singing a song in all three languages also. I guess this thing is actually working!

We also have one of the Baby Einstein videos (Baby Bach) I'd love to have more, but those things are expensive! Colin adored it as a toddler, and Caleb has just come into it, too. I don't know what it is about it, but the music combined with those toys is such a hit. Caleb has zero interest in the TV otherwise, but this one he would watch all day. Note - actually, he still doesn't really sit and watch this one. He sort of wanders in and out while it's on. But he loves to request it, and hear Bach's music and catch some of the visuals while he's on the go.
