Is my toddler jealous of his 9 month brother?
He just acts up all the time. I am beginning to lose my mind.

It's possible that's the reason he's acting up. He may have realized that he gets more attention from you by being bad then he does when he's good. Most toddlers just want attention they don't care if it's good or bad so if you have a tendency to pay more attention to him when he's bad then he's going to continue to act bad.

That is true that my DH and I end up giving him negative attention due to him acting up.
I have been doing all I can as a mother to take at least and hour to spend time with him and he (as of today) has been very cheerful =D
I just have to remind myself to keep spending a little time with him. Today we sat down and I made the ABC's in lines so he could trace of each letter as I taught him how to make each letter. He knows his ABC's he's wanting and has been wanting to learn more.
Our son is very smart and I have got to remember that our son LOVE'S to learn. Before I had our second I would spend hours reading, coloring and just teaching my DS simple lessons.
