Anyone else's child mesmerized by James Earl Jones? Everytime a commercial comes on with him speaking (think Verizon) he has to stop whatever he's doing and watch. As soon as the commercial changes he's back to playing but Nathan is just mezmerized by this guys voice! Anyone else or is this a Nathan quirk? :LOL

that's really cute! but unique to Nathan, I think...then again, we live in Canada and I haven't seen any JEJ verizon commercials so i can't gauge DS's reaction...<br>
isn't it funny the stuff that they are into?

Well it was worth asking. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> It amazes me, the stuff that holds his interest and doesn't for that matter! And yes, JEJ definitely has a nice deep smooth voice! Maybe it's the clarity he likes? Fascinating!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

my son LOVES that commercial too.. although he loves any commercial especially if there is a baby in it..he will start squealing baby!! baby!!!.. I think maybe because commercials are designed to hold you attention for approx 90 seconds or so..thats why they seem so interesting to him..who knows..but he can be in mid-cry and a commercial comes on and he stops crying till its over and then resumes the cry.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: maybe I should make a tape of all commercials for when he is gretzy..hehe :LOL

Not JEJ, but when ds#1 was a baby the intro music to the McNeil/Lehrah hour on PBC was cause for whipping around and listening, regardless of what he was doing. It subsided by about age 2, but I had to be careful to not be doing something important (like nursing or trying to feed him) when the show was about to start... :LOL

MINE TOO! My son is totally in to JEJ. We don't watch a lot of TV, but once in a while, when I'm watching news or something, Verizon comes on...and he is all ears! I think they picked a winner. He can't take his eyes off of him. Also the guy in the Allstate commercials. I don't know his name, but he plays the president in that FOX show 24.

Isn't it weird what they love. I have a friend whose daughter's night terrors could only be calmed by playing her videos of "Wheel of Fortune" !
