Its ok. I know it is frustrating and a pain in the butt. I would work on you asking him questions and him answering with just the answer, not repeating the question or a portion of it. Also if he starts to mess up, stop him tell him give me five or touch your head, then ask him again. This will teach him to answer a question without repeating any part of it.

Sometimes it could be annoying, but its our job as mothers to train our children. It is completely unfair to them to get upset with them. They are kids. We are ultimately responsible for what they and don't do. If you don't want him doing that, you have to teach him, patiently, not to do it. Getting angry at a kid is like getting angry at a baby for being hungry when you are running late to be somewhere. It's not their fault.

Wait, he's only a year old? You're expecting a one year old to sit down and explain things to you? At that age he barely understands why he's doing what he does and how to accurately communicate. Dd is 15 months and I'm thrilled when she understands how to communicate small things, like answering where her nose is or what she wants to go do. I don't think he's intentionally doing anything wrong while talking to you. He probably doesn't understand why his sister is crying.
