Race Car Driver

Today I was playing with Brady in his room while adding batteries to some of his new toys.  One of the toys is a jungle car ramp with 4 little cars.  He has always liked to hold the cars and inspect them and he liked to pull the ramp closer and touch all the textures.  After I added the batteries for the super awesome sound, I took a car and placed it on the ramp.  Then I gave it a little tap and sent it down the ramp.  Brady watched all of this very closely and as soon as the car reached the bottom of the ramp, he picked it up, placed it facing forward at the top of the ramp and sent it down.  7 months old and he already thinks he’s a race car driver.

Brady received a plush Genie from Aladdin for Christmas.  When he first saw Genie he was a little excited about the push doll that is almost as big as he is, then we watched the movie.  I showed him Genie again the day after watching Aladdin and his mild enjoyment of the doll turned into extreme excitement.  
I love that he was able to recognize Genie from the movie and loves it even more.

Mommy: (While braiding Lina's hair) Stand up so I can get a better angle.
Lina: (Stands up)
Mommy: Ahh.
Lina: Am I getting to tall for you?
Mommy: Almost.
Lina: Yeah, I'm almost as tall as the toilet.

Brady has been working on his kissing lately.  Normally he will just turn an open mouth towards my mouth when I’m kissing his cheeks.  Now when I pucker my lips, he leans in and plants his little open mouth on my lips.  There isn’t much sweeter than baby kisses.

I'm in Trouble

Lina’s first day of school was today and as we were walking out of orientation we talked about a few of her friends that were in her class.  

Mommy: Did you see Sammy was in your class?
Lina: He was?  I didn’t see him.
Mommy: Yep.  You like Sammy, don’t you?
Lina: Yeah, he’s my man.
Mommy: I thought Max was your man.
Lina: Oh yeah, he is.  I have two mans.

Fun Times

In the car on the way to Mimi and Pop’s house…
Lina: Remember when it was raining and you couldn’t see?
Mommy: Yes, that’s happened to us a couple of times hasn’t it?
Lina: Yeah, those were fun times.
