Television Tot

Evan has become extremely interested in watching TV lately. Several funny stories...

I was feeding him in our bedroom Saturday morning. I had the Food Network on and was watching the end of Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals. Evan drank his bottle contently. Then, the next show came on - Everyday Italian. If you're not familiar with the host, Giada De Laurentiis, she is quite attractive and has an annoyingly cute personality. Almost immediately, Evan's head whipped toward the television and he would not take his focus off of it. He could care less about the bottle. This was not his first encounter with the darling Giada. A few weeks ago, Evan was sitting in his bouncy seat, needing to take a nap. But again, he couldn't take his eyes off of her. So, I turned the TV off. What did he do? He turned his head away and was asleep in less than 30 seconds, no joke.

But it's not just his girlfriend, Giada, that he is interested in. The other day I was in the kitchen loading the dishwasher, and Evan was in the family room playing with his Farm play gym. When I set him down, he was facing the animals, playing with them as he should. The next minute I looked down at him, and he had turned himself 90 degrees and was watching the TV above him.

I think we have trouble ahead of us!!
