Usually, he will carry the toy by the handle and joyfully run off listening to the music. When he drops it, he'll often have to use two hands (woohoo!) to pick it back up. Once he has it in his grasp, he just might rest it on his shoulder (most likely to avoid using his left hand). This always reminds me of those "cool" guys who used to carry their boomboxes on their shoulders in the 80's. Let's just hope Elijah doesn't start begging us for some parachute pants! On second thought, if he were able to ask for parachute pants you'd better believe he'd own about ten pairs by tomorrow.
