Well, Elizabeth has reached the stage where she has become fascinated with other little babies. She doesn't necessarily want to play with them...but she definitely wants to learn more about them--hands on! (Oops...that's the Lakeshore rhetoric slipping in there!) Anyway, this little introduction to her dolly at home is a good demonstration of both her curiosity and gentle nature. When we go to Gymboree, she eagerly crawls toward her little counterparts and carefully reaches out to pat their hair or touch their hands. Sometimes, by the delighted expression on her face coupled with a cute little squeal or giggle, it seems that she is surprised that the other children are REAL! And in the case of this dolly, that didn't seem to matter...as she was just happy to have made a new friend!
