The First Mate has definitely entered that stage where he mimics everything he sees. He wants to be just like Mommy and Daddy and it's adorable. Well, it's adorable when it isn't a bad word getting repeated. Just the other day I caught him wearing my new headband. It was both cute, and stylish.
When I was taking my measurements after completing the 2 Week Challenge he wanted to join in too. The First Mate grabbed the tape measure and tried it himself. His waist was definitely smaller than mine.

He's even jumping on the #selfie bandwagon of Instagram. We took this family group photo on the train at Disneyland last week. I love his sweet aviators. He even has a smile just like The Captain. Twins.
Sometimes he is having so much fun, that you have to join in. I decided to mimic The First Mate's antics on the cargo net. He climbed above me and I was making silly faces back at him from down below.

It's nice having a mini me around sometimes. I know that I can always count on him to keep me in check. I'm on my best behavior, so that he will be too. However, I really wish I could copy his napping skills. That looks amazing.
