Is the e in pie dropped?

Sometimes with monosyllabic words we make this suffix even longer: -ececillo, -ececilla, -ececillos, -ececillas:

El bebé jugaba con sus piececillos.The baby played with his little feet.Also, should the e be in bold for “ececillos”. Gracias,Shirley.

Hola Shirley

yes, in this case, (I imagine it is because this way it's easier to say) we drop the -e, so we don't repeat it. 

Saludos
