You know why we are always excited about baby videos? Because it is always a thrill to see what these tiny humans have in store for us! You can never predict what they will do, and that is so exciting! Like this video at the top of the page, for example.

The first few milestones in a baby’s life are huge for the parents and of course, they want to capture it all on camera, for posterity. It seems like in the “old days", when there were tapes and people had to plan carefully what they were going to record to keep or not, there were far bigger chance that you will actually capture the good stuff right on time.

Today, in the digital world, we can capture and record stuff to our heart’s content, but to little avail. Good thing we don’t have to keep those videos permanently, so we delete the stuff we do not like and try, try again.

In a hilarious video, an adorable boy mispronounced “happiness” to give it a very different meaning. In the video, the boy’s mother asks him to say “happiness.” The boy responds but it sounds like he’s saying “happy penis.”

“No, happiness,” the mom says, laughing. But the boy keeps mispronouncing the word and says “happy penis” instead and even yells it out loud at one point. At the end of the video, the mom tries one last time to get her son to pronounce “happiness” correctly. “Happiness,” she says. The boy pauses but mispronounces the word yet again by saying, "Happy penis."

Children imitate the behavior or mannerisms of their parents' thanks to a basic instinct that is based on the basic instincts that assist personality development. This instinct and this imitation is the reason why we humans live in and form units that share the same behavior, traits etc. It is also how our communication skill are getting developed from the early age. This is why it is important that the parent serves as an example that the child will follow i.e. imitate.

In the first two years of the child's life, the child copies the behavior of adults in a very not-conscious manner, and to the extent that its self-confidence allows. Observations show that babies are more likely to imitate those behaviors that they see more often, that they are more readily exposed to than behaviours, not typical for the environment that surrounds them.

Kids brains are like sponges - they are able to pick up everything they elders do and say. They say the easiest way of teaching a kid to do the right thing is to show it how it’s done, rather than telling the kid to so it, then do the exact opposite when the kid isn’t looking.

Same goes for curse words - everyone knows you should definitely be mindful about what you are saying in front of your kids, because their tiny minds absorb like sponges and you never know when that little verbal indiscretion might come spilling out of innocent little mouths!
