E-L-M-O

After having just written about Brennan working on sitting, Brennan decided he was ready to start sitting all by himself! All it took was a singing and dancing Elmo to give him the motivation he needed. We've had the Elmo since Jenna was a baby. He sings "E-L-M-O" and does the corresponding arm motions/letters to the music from the Village People's "Y-M-C-A." What baby would not be entranced by that?! With Elmo singing and dancing in front of him - Brennan sat for at least five minutes, where before that he hadn't sat for longer than a few seconds. I was SO impressed! We're leaving for New Hampshire today and I think Elmo might just be coming with us. As annoying as that little red monster can be, if it helps keep Brennan motivated, I'll listen to his high pitched voice all day.

Yay Brennan! We have a couple singing ELMOS and haven't thought of getting them back out...since YEAH, took the batteries out of them after my daughter was done with him...That little voice sometimes gets under my skin...but with that said, maybe we will put some fresh batteries in them and try this...How fun! Brennan is doing great...have fun on your trip...oh and DON'T forget ELMO!
