“Ben Drink Water Like Dakota!”

So, I was sitting on the couch this morning folding a big pile of towels while Ben and Dakota played behind me on the tile floor.  The next thing I know Ben comes running up to me with water dripping from his face and down his shirt and he says, “Ben drink water like Dakota!”  He had a huge smile on his face and seemed to be feeling quite proud of his accomplishment.  I turned back to see Dakota lapping up water from his water bowl that apparently Ben now shares with him.  And sure enough a little while later (as if there was any doubt the boy was drinking from Dakota’s water bowl) I caught him doing this…


Ben LOVES to do EVERYTHING Dakota does these days.  He likes to lay next to him (and on him) and he even tries to mimic Dakota’s unique talking.  For those of you that have been around Dakota for any amount of time you know what I mean…it’s hard to describe, but he does…talk.  Ben likes to say, “Dakota goes ‘whoa whoa whoa’.”  Ben also takes GREAT pride in feeding Dakota dog food twice a day and speaking on Dakota’s behalf when he needs to go inside or out.  He’ll ask me, “Can you help Dakota go outside, Mommy?”  Or he’ll stand by the back door and call out to me, “Dakota wants in, Mommy!”  Here they are enjoying a nice afternoon outside together a few days ago.
