Enforce the 'what a big boy you are!' stuff. When ever he does something like a big boy make a big deal out of it. He may be a little jealous of the baby and does the 'baby' stuff to get the 'baby' attention. So when he copies the baby tell him something like ' you're a big boy. Not a baby. Big boys do this." And show him what to do instead. Also give him 'big boy' chores. Tell him only he can do it because he is the big boy. Let him help you do stuff. Even help with the baby. Let him feel like a care giver. Make it fun. It also helps to go on outings with just him. He will feel like he has you all to himself. I have gone through this 3 times and I'm in round 4. Those are some of the things I did. They helped a lot.

Also since they are both boys he will come in handy when it is time to potty train. Little sibblings love to do things like the older ones!
