My new favorite thing of Eliot's is his play mat. We discovered that he outgrew his old play mat when we would look up and he would be playing happily a couple of feet over on the hardwood floor. He is a roller and a scooter, that one! I finally got him a big enough space (by the brand Skip Hop) that he can play on and I can wipe clean (win/win!) at my work, Baby Bliss. The design options are endless (stripes, solids, dots!) and they come in cool colors. This one happens to match our living room. I highly suggest!
