One day R came into the kitchen to find that Katie had arranged all her dolls and stuffed animals on the stairs as an attentive audience while she sat opposite on a chair and pretended to read them a story. Very cute. This is just one example of how Katie often likes to go off and do her own thing. Sometimes you can hear her giving voices to her dolls and animals. Often, she will ask you not to watch her, because she gets a little self-conscious.
