My hypothesis is that all babies have a vivid imagination from the moment they were born but that cannot manifest itself in play until they have the ability to move around and handle things, and to speak. Now that Sophia has gained these abilities, she’s blowing our minds away with her imagination.
I must already have mentioned how she imagines an earphone is a statoscope. She also takes a stirrer with a loop on top and uses it as an imaginary bubble blowing tool. And this party toy is a scary monster’s tongue that can be used to frighten everyone.
I’m so glad she doesn’t take after the completely unimaginative me in this respect!
