Monkey See, Monkey Do, What Does Your Baby Do?

They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery, but I'm not so sure in this case. At the ripe old age of 1, there is no other toy or gadget that captures my son's attention quite as well as my laptop. My 3-year-old daughter's Vtech can carry on the masquerade for a bit but he knows that the shiny silver machine with a bitten apple on it is the real deal. He will climb over barriers and shriek at the top of his tiny lungs until he can punch his wee fingers on the delectable keys.

Perhaps I have the next Bill Gates crawling around my house, or maybe it's a sign I need to step away from the computer for a bit. How does your child mirror your actions?

I'm 7 months pregnant now, and we went to the doctors office yesterday for a checkup. My 24 month old predictably went straight to the exam table and started climbing up on her. Humoring her, I sat her on the edge with her feet dangling - her usual activity of choice. This time, however, she immediatly scooted back and laid down. At first, I was kind of surprised as she is still very scared of the doctor. Then she lifted up her shirt to show her stomach, pointed at it and said, belly! Then I realized she was mimicking me! She wanted the ultrasound heart monitor and to be measured.. lol. Really funny.
