Which can be -- if you are a little weird yourself-- kind of vindicating!
One of Elliot's games for the past month or so has been to lie down on the floor. Sometimes on a pillow -- other times, just right on the floor. Sometimes he goes "Ohhhhhh", and if he does, we'll pipe up and say "Ohhhhh" right back to him. Somtimes I'll rub his back. Maybe we tickle him and he hoots.
If he's left alone, he sort of lies there for a moment, and then he gets back up. Maybe he tries a different position. Maybe he goes off to stick his finger up Ada's nose at that point. Who knows. It's the mysterious lying-down game. Blink and you might miss it. Alternately, it might go on for twenty minutes.
Behold Elliot's most recent innovation on the lying-down game: the dishtowel blanket gambit.
