There aren't many television shows that Jacob will watch or will hold his attention accept for My Friends Tigger and Pooh, The Super Sleuth's!
Honestly, any cartoon will be on in the background and Jacob could not really care much, but as soon as Pooh comes on, he is captivated for 20 minutes. And not to mention it is his internal alarm clock, 9:30 every morning on the Disney Channel an episode comes on, and he is up out of his crib by at least 9:15! Jacob will cuddle with me on the chair (which is my favorite part) and as soon as the introduction music to the Super Sleuth's starts, he looks up at me, eyes sparkling with a grin that reaches from ear to ear and claps! It's a precious moment I look forward to every morning. He has been watching this cartoon for about 6 months consistently and loves it everytime, we have a DVD and I only pull it out when we have a cranky day (which isn't too often with Jacob) but I have to say it works like a charm. And Jacob will crack up at the same scene every time, it can't help but put a smile on your face too! So, next time you find yourself surfing the channels - check out the Super Sleuths and think of Jacob!
We Tivo The Ellen show every morning, and we watch it together as a family each night. Jacob just loves it! There is a lot of music, dancing, and clapping. Here is a clip from about a month ago of some of Jacob's moves, it's mostly of his back so he wouldn't know I was video taping him since he gets camera shy.
