Tater Tot loves airplanes and helicopters. She actually pronounces helicopter, 'ellie copter'.
If she hears them fly overhead, she says, "Look!" and either runs to a window indoors or stares up into the sky to find the aircraft outdoors.
This is all very cute until it's 8pm and you live in NYC surrounded by 3 major airports and the Hudson River.
Tonight, she would just about fall asleep and then hear an aircraft. She'd jump up and stand by the window, holding the shade open and proceed to say goodnight to the airplanes, ellie-copters and a star. She also serenaded the star with a rendition of Twinkle, Twinkle.
After 15 minutes or so, she's let go of the shade and then lay in bed again.
By the way, I have no idea what parents did before YouTube. I was able to find a video of airplanes and helicopters landing and taking off to show TG the difference. Now she gets it 70% correct when she hears the aircraft nearby.
DH wants to take her to the heliport but I don't know if the super loud sounds being so close to them would frighten her or what not.
