Pete & Repeat

I have mentioned before that Logan has become Kaden's shadow. He idolizes his big brother. He wants to do anything and everything that his big bro does & he doesn't want to even think about being left behind.

And just in case Kaden doesn't always "see" Logan following in his every foot step, Logan makes sure he is heard.

Meet Pete. Our soon-to-be three & a half year old.

Meet REPEAT. Our twenty month old.

Logan has started repeating everything, I mean EVERYTHING that Kaden says. Doesn't matter what it is, I hear two of everything.

"caachhhhaaaww." (Logan speak)

"Gentlemen start your engine."
"gennnele sarrrr ennnnnnnn." (Logan speak)

and then there are the words that we can all understand….

Kaden-- "NO."
Logan-- "NO."
Kaden-- "Don't tell me NO."
Logan-- "NO."

I can't even begin to explain how frustrated Kaden gets when Logan starts repeating everything he says. He flipping goes nuts. Gets all worked up, starts screaming his words which only makes Logan start screaming his words too. Heck Logan thinks it the bestest game in the world.  And then it happens, an all out melt down. Kaden on the floor, crying and telling Justin and I that Logan is making him sad. Poor kid just doesn't understand that all Logan is trying to do is be more like him--he just thinks Logan is being a pain. I get it. I use to play a mean game of shadow too.

And you know, I can't help but laugh at the situation. One of these days Kaden will understand but sadly, that day seems a LONG ways away. Because when Kaden gets in one of those moods, there ain't no rationalizing with him. You just gotta walk away and hope Logan doesn't get down on the floor and follow in his footsteps yet again..

Boys. They sure keep life interesting.
