My little handy-girl

So this morning one of the things on my to-do list was to call and get the immobilizer part for our beautiful crib that unfortunately has drop sides and is under recall. (Paul made the good point that we should probably keep Ella in her Moses basket in the crib until we fix it.) That was done and I decided to watch the video of how to do the repair. Meanwhile Ella was fussing to be picked up. When I put her on my lap, she was absolutely mesmerized by the lady putting the crib together. Intently looking and quietly waving her fist.

Wow, I thought! She likes TV. Let's try something more appropriate for her like Raffi (my absolute favorite children's musician). As soon as I put that on, she watched about 5-10 seconds and started squealing and crying. Doh! Let's hope she was just tired of sitting there and not really preferring an instructional furniture assembly video over happy folk music! I refuse to put on assembly instructions for long road trips!
