the amazing developmental leaps of Zoralee's dolls

Just over the last few weeks, Zoralee's dolls have been surprising us with their newfound skills. For the first 17 months of her life, they either laid around in a toy box or hung limply from her hand.

But suddenly, they've come to life. Their most striking advancement is the use of baby sign language. We have witnessed Z putting their hands together for the signs of "more," "all done," and "eat." They love to have tastes and sips of whatever she's eating or drinking. They are potty trained, though their little paws and hands can't maintain a steady grip on the big toilet edges - we've had one or two accidental drop-ins. And just this morning, Monkey, who was sitting with us at the breakfast table, wanted to hold hands with the family to say grace.

I again love these pictures. Chloe just flipped out because the baby in the first picture with the potty looks identical to her first baby she had when she was little. Oh the memories! You are in for a treat...this is just the beginning of a most wonderful imagination when it comes to play with dolls. My girls did that...in fact Lillian is in the prime of doing that right now. She even uses a special high pitched voice for her babies "talking".
Can't wait to chat...

I love watching her hold and talk to (or for) her dolls. I haven't yet gotten to witness the pottying of them, but that is rioutously funny.

And freaking yay for Zor for being potty trained now! (Maybe that was in the other post, but oh well).
