Since the twins came home from the hospital over three years ago, Jake has been a pretty awesome big brother. Sometimes he shows more patience with them than even the adults in the house. I would always hear him say, "Jake Jake will help", "Let Jake Jake do it", and "That's a no-no" or "No-no touch! No-no touch!" Sometimes he uttered these phrases in a gentle sing-songey voice. Other times his voice was more exasperated and high pitched.
Now that the twins are 3-1/2, Jake still speaks to them the exact same way. I cannot imagine what goes through the twins' minds when he does this. Perhaps they think to themselves "What is up with this guy? Why is he talking so funny?"
I guess they'll always be babies to him.
