Eliana loves to mimic people. Talking on the phone is one example. She will hold many types of devices up to her ear while carrying on a baby-talk conversation comprehensible only to her and whomever may be on the other end of the line. Her favorites gadgets (besides the iPhone and conventional phone) are a remote control, calculator, and iPod.
She likes to mimic Ethan, too, which works out particularly well when it’s a virtuous thing that he’s doing, like brushing his teeth.
