Just wondered how common this is- My 26 month old starts to cry now when she sees something sad or thinks the person is sad. We were watching Sophia the First- and she has seen parts of it before- I know she saw this part before- but she started crying today when Sophia was signing kind of a sad song- like really crying. I was watching it with her and tried to console her- so I turned it off and in about 5 minutes or so I got her re-engaged in an activity and she was fine.
And the other day I let her watch the clip of Belle from Beauty and the beast- where Belle is signing about the town- she loves that song- I sing it to her a lot when we are playing. But when she is sitting at the fountain signing to the sheep my daughter started to cry- it wasnt even a sad part. I was stumped about it. Again- I re-directed her and she was fine a little bit later.
All I can think is that she is starting to recognize emotions or she is going to give me one roller coaster of a ride when she is a teenager!
