We have a monster addiction in our house

Elmo. The big, red, furry Sesame Street monster with that annoying high-pitched giggle is the best thing in the world to Keifer right now. She loves her Elmo. She loves him so much, that the first thing she'll say to us in the AM these days is "Elmo?". She's referring to the few episodes of Sesame Street that we have DVRed for her. It used to be, she'd watch much of the episode and get excited when she saw Elmo appear. Now, she'll point at the remote up high on the counter, and bark orders at us: "Elmo! Elmo!". She does not like watching any other parts of the episodes; oh no. We must fast forward until we get to her red furry crush. Then she'll visibly relax, smile broadly and start giggling herself. We've created a MONSTER! An Elmo Monster! *snicker*
Luckily, we've discovered this love of watching all things red and furry: when we go on our Christmas holiday this year, we now know what will be keeping our little girl occupied on our long plane ride to Mexico: Elmo videos! *whew*

Kylie has a strange affection for The Wiggles. But it is nice that she's finally a bit interested in tv.

Sounds like Baby B's obsession with baby videos on YouTube. LOL It's funny how they get such a one-track mind!

Bailey is obsessed with Elmo "Mo" too. We have three Elmo's World videos and I am always requesting different ones at the library. I think she would watch the same one 50000000 times as long as Mo was in it.

sooo cute, the boys have no idea about anything like that yet, but I can't wait until they do!!!

Aidan is also obsessed with "Melmo." Very cute, if not slightly annoying because his voice/laugh is fairly grating. But, in the car when they drive 3 hours to DC to visit Mama, it's Eric's absolute lifesaver.
