Riveting… If You’re Me

I gave Brandon a Flip video camera for our anniversary, but of course I’m using it too. We are going to have so many videos of Eleanor that are only of interest to me, Brandon, and perhaps our mothers. I promise not to bore you with all of them, though I can’t say I’ll have the same restraint over on flickr.

Here’s one such example. I find it utterly charming, even though Eleanor basically just lays there and occasionally bats at a toy for well over a minute.

The fact that she’s interested in toys now is both good and bad. Good, because she’s becoming more expressive and more like an actual little person! Bad, because now in addition to wondering if she’s crying because she’s hungry, wet, or tired, we can add crying out of boredom to the list.
