For the past nine months, Lisa and I have seen our kids go through the slow process of becoming little individuals. Although it hasn't even been a year, it's pretty interesting to see how different they are already. Without being stereotypical, you also see them taking on traditional gender traits. Andrew is rough with his toys; Emma is more gentle. Andrew gets hyperactive; Emma tends to stay calm. Andrew prefers hard liquor; Emma likes mixed drinks.
The one thing they both find interesting is television. Granted, Emma can watch television a lot longer than Andrew because she focuses on things better and...well...she can't move. But even with on-the-go Andrew, he can sit down for several minutes and watch a captivating baby video. Lisa and I don't think we over do it with the television, but if we need a few minutes to our own we'll turn on the boob tube and let the kids veg out. What do you feel about babies watching television? How much is too much? Does it even matter? Should babies be granted privileges to become Nielsen members?
