A peer colleague thanks me way too much

I have this colleague who thanks me a lot. It is getting pretty ridiculous. We are both mid level managers and they thank me via a separate email every, single, time, I do something. Even basic job tasks and 'that sounds right to me' emails. It feels weird and condescending and I'm not sure what is going on. It just changed in the past few months and I thought I'd just ignore it, but it is getting pretty grading. If we were in person I would ask them to go out for coffee and talk through it, but remote work is a whole other beast. I thought about thanking them back every time, but that seems too passive aggressive? I don't think I necessarily need to elevate it my supervisor either… How would you approach this? Should I just ignore it?
