daddy's watching me again...

mommy left me alone with daddy today. i waited until she was just out the door before eating up most of the thawed stored food, then gave daddy about an hour to feel like he was up to the task of keeping track of me, and then i turned it up a notch, just to see what he could handle.

he's tried pacifiers...he's tried walking around the house with me...he's changed me eleventyfive times...he tried rocking me...he tried rolling me...he even tried teaching me japanese, i think...but now...now i'm hypnotized...he put on this dvd, called "baby mozart" and let me tell you, if you are a baby, you need to cry until your mommy and daddy get you this dvd. it's mesmorizing! the simple music, the high-contrast simple shapes...there's only one scary scene in the whole thing, with kittys and puppies, but other than that scene, i crashed out watching it, forgetting all about my plan of crying until mommy got home.

here's me right after daddy started the dvd...he started filming right after i stopped crying (~750KB):

Poor daddy, sounds like you gave him quite a morning. But I have heard that everyone who has ever had a baby recommends this same tape. That is why your daddy's cousin Kristi gives it as a gift to everyone that is going to have a baby.
