Who Wants to See Something Awesome?

Smarty from Annie Kratzsch on Vimeo.


This contraption is made up of a fantastic cheap light-up aquarium from Walgreens and this amazing thing that can make anything switch operated in order for Collin to learn cause and effect (the red circle under his hand is the switch). We hooked the aquarium to the switch, used his favorite carousel toy to create the necessary excitement for him to hit the switch, and presto bango, you have learning at it's absolute best. He got faster and faster after this and we had to switch to having him activate it with his feet to keep him interested.

Of course, he would prefer to TELL the aquarium to turn on rather than actually hit the switch. Not sure where he got that trait.

No seizures again today. We're starting to take deep breaths periodically.

  2. Two days in a row with a Collin video? Delicious. Christmas has come early for me! (P.S. With both of our birthdays in February, Collin, maybe you can convince your mom to do a weekly posting at least until then in honor. Whaddya think??)

  5. Christmas fun for the whole family! And how smart to do his whale call to fish...he probably thought he'd intimidate them into movement.
