Big Brother

Danny and I have a new love in our lives.

The video monitor.

...did I trick you with that post title?  Because at 4:00 in the morning when I thought of it I was pretty sure it would be hilarious and people would think that I was making some sort of announcement, and then they would laugh when it was just about how we watch Gibson in his room all the time.

4:00 in the morning Erin may have been wrong, ok?

Anyway.  The video monitor is the bomb dot com (I'm so trendy!).  It's super awesome to be able to see what Gibson is doing in his room now that he has free reign of it.

For the first couple of days, he pretty much just laid in his bed and went to sleep.  Which was great.  But now he has discovered that there are toys in his room, and naps are a bit harder...he tends to play first and then lay down to sleep.  And it's SO MUCH FUN to watch!

Trying to stand on a book to reach his white noise machine (he failed).

Dragging Woody around the room by the hand.

Drumming on his bench.

Asleep in the middle of the floor.  Precious.

The only problem with the video monitor is that I find myself watching it all night and giving Danny a play-by-play of what's going on.

"Oh no, he's crawling out of his bed!  He's going over to the bench!  He's picking out books to read...OH LOOK!  He's reading a book!  How adorable!  ARE YOU LOOKING??  Darn it, now he's going to the door.  Do you hear him banging on the door?  Now he's crawling back to his dresser!  He grabbed his blankie...maybe he's going to sleep!  Look, he's laying down!  Yay!  He's finally going to sleep!  OH NO!  He's crawling over to the chair.  And now he's standing up.  Dang it, he's never going to sleep!"

Once Gibson is actually asleep, the commentary is more like this:

"Awwwwwwwwwww, do you see my precious boy?  He's sleeping with his head on the mattress and his body on the floor!  Awwwwwwwwwwww, he moved!  His little feet are kicking!  It looks like his socks are off...did you see his sweet little bare feet?  Awwwwwwwwww, he's snuggling his blankie!  Can I go in and snuggle him PLEEEEEASE???"

I'm not entirely sure, but I think I may be crazy.

...I bet Danny's sure of it, though.
