I know this has been discussed a bit before but I would like to take another look at the possibility that a doll was used for the earliest pictures of Trig. Notice how similar these pictures seem? His mouth looks exactly the same except for the crease at the corner of his mouth being on the opposite side. I think it’s possible that one of these pictures may have been flipped and the soft material used to create these dolls caused the facial squishing in the first picture.
Now take a look at a baby reborn also known as a “fake baby”.Notice the similarities? Clicking the picture of the reborn baby will take you to a website with more pictures of this doll as well as pictures of other reborns. They do look very real and they can be put in different poses and even “suck” pacifiers. Reborns can also have heartbeats, breathing simulators and warm skin with use of a heating device.
So why do I think the earliest version of Trig may have been one of these dolls? It’s just a hunch but it would explain why the first pictures we saw of Trig appear to be of a healthier, more robust baby than the baby in the pictures below and in the baby shower pictures.
But why would Sarah feel the need to use a “fake baby”? One reason might have been that the tiny, ruffle-eared baby was too sickly to present on April 18, 2008. My own personal feelings, though, are that Sarah was trying to keep that ruffled ear from being noticed. That would explain why Mercede’s computer was scrubbed. Does anyone know if the baby shower pictures on Kristan Cole’s website were quickly removed once Sarah was announced for VP?
I’m sure many reading this are wondering if she had a reborn why didn’t she take it to the baby shower? Too many people there to notice the baby wasn’t real. The earliest pictures involve only Sarah, Todd and Sarah’s parents who were all in on the deception. Why wasn’t Sarah concerned about the people at the shower noticing the ruffled ear? They were all friends and as it says in the book “Sarah” by Kaylene Johnson. valley people mind their own business and expect others to do the same.
Were there other times when a “fake baby” may have been substituted for Trig? Possibly. These pictures make me wonder.
A doll could explain why “Trig” didn’t suffocate in that sling. I guess we’ll never know for sure but it is one more thing to wonder about.
