Knowing how much he likes fireworks, he watched it again on NDP, both from our window and on TV concurrently. He didn't even know where to look - to watch it "live" on the window or the TV!
Then he watched the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics on TV with similar enthusiasm. So E thought of a brilliant distraction to calm him during his meltdowns - get the baby to watch fireworks on his iPod! He made a 7 min video on his iPod so we have fireworks on display at our disposal. :)
