D takes her baby love to an all new level. M didn't play with her dolls that much. K played with baby dolls even less. D almost always has a baby doll with her.
She owns approximately 426,897 baby dolls and she loves each and every one of them. No lie. I admit I've been a little surprised at how much she loves her baby dolls.
She cannot sleep or nap without at least one baby. Often we are in the car with 3-4 babies on D's lap. She teaches them. I hear my own word echoed to these babies. She changes imaginary diapers. She comforts her babies when they are sad...and I never know when they are sad like she does.
I hear her cooing to them. She pats their backs, worries over imagined injuries and tucks covers over them when they nap.
