    •  Do you think it's rocking for self-comfort? (3+ / 0-)

      For both bats and peeps? That was my first thought with regard to Lil Drac. :)

        They are intelligent and emotional animals.

        Amanda says she doesn't know why he does it either.

        thing.  They show orphans from other countries rocking, I think it's called RAD.  Abandonment disorder or something.  

        But it must be comforting to Lil Drac.  I think it was for my son but now he says it was because he didn't want to hear all the other noises.  It's a way of focusing.   Or was.  Now he uses his ear buds and we don't try to make him use eye contact so he can actually hear what a person is saying better without looking at them.  He may look rude, but it's needed for him to function.  :)

        Watched all three videos with him and started crying.  A good cry.  it's good to see people caring about others.  Gives us all hope.
