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.

Who Is This Kid?

Mommy: Lina, do you want noodles for your birthday dinner tomorrow?
Lina: Ummm, no.
Mommy: No?  You don’t want pasta?  You love pasta, I thought for sure you’d want plain noodles.
Lina: No.
Mommy:  Okay.  Do you want chicken nuggets or pancakes?
Lina: No.
Mommy:  Okay, well what do you want?  Because I’m out of guesses.
Lina: Fish.
Mommy: Fish?
Lina: Yeah, fish.
Mommy: Do you want broccoli with your fish?
Lina: Broccoli?  Oh yeah, I do.  Broccoli and that white stuff.
Mommy:  You mean cauliflower?
Lina: Yeah, broccoli and cauliflower.
Mommy:  Are you sure you don’t want noodles?
Lina: Nope.  I want fish.
Mommy: Okay, I’ll make you fish with rice and broccoli.
Lina: Rice?
Mommy: Yes, rice.
Lina: I don’t want rice.  I want bread.
Mommy: Okay, I’ll go to the store and get the bread you like.
Lina:  Thanks.
Mommy: Your welcome.  So then we’ll have fish with bread and broccoli for your birthday dinner.
Lina: Don’t forget the cauliflower.
Mommy:  We had that tonight, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots.
Lina:  I don’t want the carrots, just the broccoli and cauliflower.
Mommy:  Okay, I’ll see if they have a mix without the carrots.
Lina: Thanks,
Mommy:  You are very welcome.  Did you want to go to McDonalds instead?
Lina: No, I want fish.
Mommy:  Okay.
