Does anyone's baby 'pretend' things?
Developmentally, this is bizarre, and my daughter is weirding me out.
A few months ago, at La Leche League, a little girl had animal crackers.
Apparently, Abigail wanted one, but the girl wasn't sharing.
So, Abby sat down next to her and pretended to eat a cracker.
I thought it was cute.
Now, however, she spends quite a lot of time eating fake food out of anyone's hand.
She'll go up to you, make your hand into a cup, and take a fake bit of food out.
She eats it, she offers it to everyone around her.
She also pretends to drink.
She'll take a container, tip it to her mouth, and go 'Aaaaah' like she's refreshed.
She also pretends to fall out of bed, so we'll rescue her.
These are all cute games, but developmentally not on track.
Am I over-thinking this?
