Bella throws her dolly to the ground. And then picks it up and first makes a little whimpering crying noise and then soothing sounds: “It’s ok. Don’t cry.” and sometimes, “Did you scrape?”
I know it’s just another imitation mothering game like when she wipes up the dolly’s face saying, “Milk on face. That’s better.” Or when she diapers the dolly, wraps the dolly in a blanket, or nurses the dolly. But seeing the dolly flung to the ground makes me cringe. Especially thinking of the possibility of Sophia being treated in a similar fashion.
