This week our word of the week has to be Elmo. Ethan has discovered the Sesame Street channel on YouTube. This then moved onto watching Elmo and Cookie Monster toy reviews. We also are not forgetting those fantastic surprise eggs that we have to always watch! This means the YouTube theme for Ethan this week has been lots and lots of Sesame Street.
Because of this new development, we have also discovered that Ethan can actually say the word, Elmo. This is fantastic another word to add to Ethan’s slowly growing list of words.
We got Ethan a talking and storytelling Elmo when he was six months old. We charged up his batteries and brought him down so the children can play with him. Along with the Fisher-Price puppy, he was a hit for a few days. It was great to watch the children playing together. These toys brought with them lots of excitement and laughter.
Elmo wasn’t the total star of the week as Cookie Monster also made an appearance during BounceAbility. He was on one of the other boy’s t-shirts and instead of listening to his instructor Ethan kept vocalizing Cookie Monster. This made for a very interesting BounceAbility session. The instructor earned his money that day!
The ironic thing is when walking home from town there was an Elmo floating in the river. It was a sad sight as he was in very good condition, I’m sure he will be missed.
It is so funny how Sesame Street was a theme for us this week. I wonder what next weeks theme will be.
