Hayden has inherited many books from the neighbors down the street, and several of these books are Dora the Explorer books. He has always been interested in them, and so we looked around and found the show on tv. We’ve recorded a bunch of them so we can have them on hand whenever they are needed, like when his nails need to be trimmed or sunscreen needs to be applied (these two things really get him into terrible two toddler mode). He LOVES Dora. He’ll watch it and when she comes on he says Dora! about a hundred times. Then her monkey friend Boots comes on and it’s Boots! a hundred time. Then Map comes on, and it’s Map! Map! Map!… He loves it. Dora uses some Spanish words throughout her show, and he repeat these (with some encouragement from Mommy and Daddy) which is quite cute.
