This is Nolan, as often as possible these days. He and his DS are permanently joined. Unless his stinkin' parents forget to charge it, and then WATCH OUT.

He has a Mario Brothers obsession. I'm not even kidding. Hums along to the songs as they go, and sings them when he's not playing. It's crazy.

Yes, he's only 2.

No, he's not at all good at the game.

But he's getting better. And he knows the parts of it he likes and how to get to those parts. It's a little bit scary to watch the determination on his face, actually.

I've convinced myself that it's teaching him hand/eye coordination and how to get along in this tech savvy world.

Mostly, though, it keeps him from acting like a 2 year old.

Wow, I didn't know the DS had a level for 2-yr-olds. I was shocked when I heard a mom say she was going to get one for her 6-yr-old. Then again I thought the DS was like carrying a mini play station or video iPod. I didn't realize the games came for much younger levels and many are educational. Whatever keeps him happy, right?

Nolan's ability to work electronic devices is amazing to me. And, I think he looks like a perfect blend of you and B here.
