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.
