MY CHILD IS BRILLIANT! Or so I'm going to think... Mark isn't home, Merritt was in bed and I was in the den watching a movie. All of a sudden I heard music. As I slowly wandered through the house listening, I realized that it was coming from Merritt's room. We have a blue elephant that my mom bought for him hanging on the inside of the crib. It has a pull string on it. If you pull it, it plays about 20 second of "Rock a by Baby." I watched him carefully move the elephant's feet out of the way with one hand and grab the drawstring with the other (so coordinated and intentional). Then I watched him do it over and over and over....the music is still going...it's been about 15 minutes.. will he ever stop pulling the drawstring and go to bed?!?!
