Why does my dog act like this around the baby?

So Simba has picked up a few new quirky habits, I'm just curious if those more experienced in dog behaviour can tell me why.

1- When the baby cries (a LOT, he had colic), Simba will pick up a stuffed toy and shake it like crazy, tossing it onto the baby. After that, he will run around in circles.

2- When we put the baby to sleep for the night (it's dark, quiet, and we're careful to try and not make a sound!), Simba will grab a large chew bone and toss it onto the (hardwood) floor right below the baby's bassinet, waking him up! He *never* does this at any other time except at the 9pm bedtime routine.

It's cute & funny, I'm just curious.
