How Many Times Have I Heard That?!

For the past two weeks or so, Garrett has discovered how much he likes to watch Horton Hears a Who on my bed.  When he first wakes up, he comes into our room and starts up the TV and DVD player and I groggily awake to the voices of Jim Carrey, Steve Carell, and Carol Burnett (mingled with a little bit of Garrett quoting the film).  I'm a little scared to think about how many times the movie has been played each day.

What is so charming about it all is how Garrett likes to get set up for the movie.  He sits on the pillows and requests that all his bears be lined up alongside him. Everyone is then covered with blankets. He then watches, with fixed attention, as Horton journeys through the jungle to restore Whoville to a safe, stable location.

One day, I set him up around noon and left to do some dishes.  When I came back to check on him, this is what I found:

I couldn't resist taking a picture and sharing it on our blog.  I think it is so sweet. Now, if only I could sleep so well through the movie!

Garrett knows how to turn on the DVD player and TV? Wow! Super smart kiddo. That's adorable. We haven't seen that movie. We'll have to check it out. I love the sleeping Garrett picture. It just makes you want to snuggle up with him. I miss the snuggle days with David. He won't let me anymore unless he's sick.
