What's going on?
When baby Winnie came to us at 8weeks old, we used crate training technique to restrain him until 12 weeks old. He became so smart, just pee on the pee pad everytime he need to go. he also sleeps with me in the night and he will get up to go to the pee pad area and release himself and then come back to bed to sleep again. We set up 2 pee pee area for him, one is in the bed room(he sleeps with me) one is in the kitchen. He seems know exactly where to pee until 2 days ago. His behavior changed dramatically, now he pees on the carpet whenever he wants. What's going on??

Has there been a change in your daily routine, feeding schedule or has there been some thing happen that has given him a scare? All of these are things that can cause issues with potty training.
Try to reinforce your potty training techniques and reward him when he uses the pads. You may have to start from the beginning!

He's far from potty-trained and too young to be reliant - could even have a bladder or tummy irritation or anything causing some upset - but in any event all puppies seem to lose their wonderfully early-learned house-training because we start to watch them less, trust them more and they just lapse back into going wherever is convenient and easy. Go back to your original crate-training where he's in the crate when you leave the room or are having dinner, running errands, etc. Otherwise, keep to his schedule and keep him outside the crate, involved in your life but watching him closely for behavior that indicates he's about to go and then rush him to his potty place and give him the command to go potty. But don't feel bad because he relapsed some, all dogs go through times like this - no matter how old they are and how much control they may have when training begins.
