Christmas morning, 2010: Frankie meets Elmo, a gift from Mommy who knows how much Frankie likes music and dancing. Elmo does the Hokey Pokey and makes us all laugh. For about a week, Frankie preferred to watch Grandpa, Grandma and Mommy dance with Elmo. Frankie, meanwhile, would watch from the sidelines and run to re-start Elmo to keep us going--even though, after a while, we all concurred with Elmo who declared at the end of each dance, "That was fun. Elmo's pooped!"
By New Year's Day, 2011, Frankie had decided to join in the fun. He preferred to do it in a corner, rather than out in the middle of the room. These videos capture his delightful reaction Christmas morning to the silly dancing Elmo and then show Frankie's own version which includes a lot of spinning, a few hops, and a mimic of Elmo's words, "that's what it's all about!"
