Yes. Liam learned that in kindergarten. He goes to a very good Catholic school and the Lincoln diocese is one of the strictest, I believe, in the entire country. People have derisively called this diocese the "pay, pray, and obey" diocese. Not quite. It is really traditional, though. But, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Allison is 3 and knows most of the Our Father and crosses herself without being prompted most of the time.
Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.
I discovered last week that Nolan has the Our Father memorized after three weeks in Cath kindergarten, awesome! He's also very confident with crossing himself. They do both when school starts each morning. The middle three can do their crosses but don't know their Our Father yet, so I am making a conscious effort to do it before bed
They all know the sign of the cross although our 22month old sometimes uses both hands I'm actually not sure about the Our Father - they say it with us but I've never tested them to see if they can say the whole thing on their own.
"Authentic love is not a vague sentiment or a blind passion. It is an inner attitude that involves the whole human person. It is looking to the other, not to use but to serve. It is rejoicing when the other rejoices and suffers when the other suffers. Love is the gift of self." JPII
Yes. My two year old points to his head and chest when crossing himself and hasn't figured the whole thing out yet. He has picked up on the rythme of Our Father prayer, but he's still learning to talk and hasn't figure out every word. He mumbles through each day when we pray it. The oldest two know it very well and cross themselves on their own.

Rock, yes to the second, and I'm kinda surprised no to the first, cuz we say it so often, but he doesn't seem to.
LJ, no, but he sure tries on the sign of the cross.
Amber sometimes tries, but no.
Terra, obviously not.
