A little bit about my *OTHER* son...
I spend an inordinate amount of time talking about my oldest son, Mitch. With good reason of course, seeing that he is 2 years older than his younger brother, it goes without saying that I have two more years of experience and fun with him.
But Mikey is definitely a character in his own right. For a 21-month old, he is a big chatterbox. He also is completely in "Monkey See, Monkey do" mode with Mitch - whateve Mitch does/wants/has he wants it too.
But what I find interesting, is that Mitch, somehow is a catalyst for Mikey's beggining to learn religious rituals. For example, now that Mitch knows his blessings to recite before and after food, Mikey tries reciting them too. While he doesn't have all the words down pat yet, it is the intention that is starting to form a good habit. Even though getting Mitch to wear his 'Yarmulka (skullcap)' is still a little bit of a battle, the minute Mitch puts it on, Mikey wants his on too.
