Playground Friend

An older baby dressed all in pink introduced herself to Mabel Watson Payne at the Chinatown playground. It was news to my granddaughter that there are dolls in existence who possess their own miniature baby bottles to drink from, but this friendly child had one.

Once the process was demonstrated, Mabel Watson Payne understood immediately how to go about feeding a pretend-bottle to a doll.

Later, the new friend observed with professional interest while Mabel Watson Payne drank from a real baby bottle brought along for the purpose by her father.
