It's a Bird, It's a Plane...

Elliot has become obsessed with flying objects.

I really don't blame him. I mean, the poor guy is just getting a sense for how the world works and then he looks up in the sky and sees that there are THINGS FLYING UP THERE. LIKE HOW THE F*** DID THAT HAPPEN??

Elliot is most excited by helicopters, followed by airplanes, followed by birds. That seems about right, really, in terms of how inherently awesome all those things are.

When he sees a helicopter fly by, he tugs his ear to show that he HEARS the thing. Then he points at it fervently. Then when it's gone, he gets frustrated at me and says, "More." As if I could make it come back. Maybe he needs to find a more powerful Dada.
