Annalyn asks for a snack and Emma runs over saying "too!"
Annalyn puts on a dress and Emma pulls one out of her (or Anna's) drawer, "too, too!"
Annalyn sits down to put her shoes on and Emma brings me hers "Too, shoes, too!"
Annalyn pulls a chair over the island to help me cook, and you guessed it, Emma follows "tooooo!"
Annalyn gets a book off her shelf and Emma reaches up "too! Goose, too!" (Duck & Goose is her favorite book series at the moment.)
I've started realizing that I naturally address Annalyn first, then when Emma pipes in, I respond with "you, too, Em?" That probably explains her latest "too" trend. That and the fact that little Emma is obviously pretty smitten with her big sis. They are best buds and little rivals at the same time.
It's so different seeing the big/little sis roles from a mom's point of view. As a kid, I always hated when my little sister (5.5 years younger) insisted on copying everything I did/said/wore/etc. Now, of course, I think it's adorable and I can see how much she loves and adores Annalyn. Sorry, Linz, I didn't understand back then. Love you, too. ;)
