Frances’s interest began at about 13 months: I noticed that she was having a tantrum because her older sister was holding a doll. Frances just had to have it: she didn’t play with it; she simply wanted to hold it. (It has always been about dolls, and about books and household items as well.)
Honestly, when it comes to Frances and dolls, the word “interest” just doesn’t seem strong enough. 🙂
