I was washing dishes in the kitchen and kept hearing this odd galloping noise down the hall, kind of like running but not really? Curious, I backed up, and this is what I saw through the doorway. It's only 4 seconds long, so you'll have to play it several times to get the full effect, but Elijah had been doing this up and down the hall for a good 10-15 minutes. One of the things I love about him is that his own body is and endless source of entertainment. The other day I caught him drawing his bones on his skin with a pen. Yup. He was making long marks all the way up his arms and little marks for every finger bone. You gotta love him!
