Manu's Birthday!

Manu just had a birthday!  He and I had just arrived back Thursday night from a blissful 3-week excursion to visit family in OK.

We had to get back before Manu's birthday so we could celebrate with Nate!

Nate had the whole day off and the three of us savored the day together.  Then we had a great pizza dinner at the beach (pepperoni with extra sand anyone?) with some friends.  We headed back to our place where everyone had milkshakes, except Manu.  He opted for three clementines instead.

A few fun facts about Manu for his birthday:
  • Manu is totally addicted to the Piano Guys music videos.  If you haven't watched them, you should.  They're really pretty good.  We're in the midst of an intervention.  Do they have a 12-step program for toddlers? 
  • He loves to throw things.  Which is usually fine since he has (mostly) learned that throwing things at the piano or computer = timeout. However, it can also make for interesting Sacrament Meetings.  Watch out if you're sitting behind us.  Or in front of us for that matter.  
  • Takes a 2-3 hr nap every afternoon.  Heaven.
  • When we go to the park, he'd rather dig in the dirt than play on the playground.  

Happy Birthday, Manu!  We love you!

 P.S.  when did you get so big?

So cute! It doesn't seem like that long ago when we were in Hawaii visiting you right before he was born. Time flies! Looks like you guys are having fun!
