Chase me, copy me

Oakley and Matthew engage in some typical toddler social play, consisting of chasing and copying each other. These "chase me" and "copy me" games represent the beginning stages of more complex cooperative social play. For now, perhaps due to limited language and social skills, Matthew and Oakley are perfectly happy to run after each other and mimic each other in front of the mirror.

Matthew (2 years, 10 months)
Oakley (2 years, 10 months)
