Jonathan has an Italian board book that Aunt Janet brought him from Italy, which I stumble through as best I can. After I read a book, he will usually turn through the pages again himself. This time, he babbled in a more singsong voice, unlike his usual talking. I really think he was trying out the Italian!
Speaking of Aunt Janet, Jonathan takes after her when it comes to cereal. When I was making granola, he ate some of the raw oats and kept asking for more!

We know several young boys who like to play with baby dolls in addition to their other toys. When Jonathan started being more interested himself, I got down my old doll Joseph from the closet. We parents may be "progressive" in letting them have the dolls, but there is still definitely a difference between boys and girls!

Jonathan will be nicely cooing to and cuddling with the doll, and then next second will throw him to the floor or bang him on the coffee table. Correct me if I'm wrong, Mom, but I bet Janet and I didn't do that!

Actually, I'm pretty sure that's about what you did at that age. If he were four or five, it would be Calvin behavior, but for less than two years it's normal, boy or girl.
