Monkey See, Monkey Do

Cate just adores her older brother. She tries to do everything and anything he does, no matter what it is. He throws a stone, she throws a stone. He spits, she spits. He gives me a kiss, she gives me a kiss. I feel like if we can succeed in making Dominic a respectable, godly child, we will have automatically succeeded with Cate too.

Her copy-cat behavior even extends to clothes and potty training. He goes to the bathroom and she always tries to take her pants off too. Here's her most recent display of "brother-worship".

  1. Funny and adorable. Looks like something you would wear when you were little, Amy.

  2. This is too funny, Amy, but we're totally in the same boat (including trying to wear big sister's underwear, but it's a little less amusing since they're at least both girls)! I remember Dr. Whalen once saying that all you have to do is potty train the first child and then he/she will potty train the next, who will potty train the next, and on and on. I tend to think it's not quite that easy, but there certainly seems to be some truth there. Enjoy your final days in Italy!
