Happy Birthday to my sweet little Boo Bear, Manny! A couple of weeks ago he turned 5! So I am back to a house that feels "normal" with Manny and JoJo the same age again.
Manny is all about the Avengers these days, especially Captain American. And yes, this cake has gray frosting. And it didn't taste very good. Go figure.
We had our typical family birthday party. They make me the happiest. I'm not really a party planner so anything more than a cake in my own kitchen is way above my skill set!
Manny got a whole bunch of new Legos for his birthday from Grace, Haven, and JoJo. Grace also got Manny a whole bag of marshmallows. This is Grace's go to gift for Manny. He is a bit of a marshmallow fanatic!
There is a possibility that his siblings picked out Legos with a small ulterior motive! Everyone dove right in to play after cake.
Manny had his well kiddo doctor visit and although he is still enormous, he is starting to move closer the average. He was 78th percentile in weight and 88th in height.
And he still has those dreamy Manny eyes!!! He also still loves the color blue and sports. His newest interest is football and JJWatt! He is very academic and showing signs of reading readiness. Like his big sister he is crazy about Minecraft and his favorite TV show is Paw Patrol.
His big birthday present from Mama and Daddy was a basketball goal for the backyard. And Grandma came through with 6 basketballs in 6 different colors! Hurray, no fighting over who gets to shoot next!!!
Brian also had a birthday last week. We had a fun dinner out with friends and the kiddos. But Brian's birthday wasn't exactly what he had hoped for. The Texans lost that day and I forgot to check his pockets before doing a load of laundry and washed his telephone. Happy birthday, Sweetheart :)
In the next 10 days we have 3 more birthdays. I'm a little warn out from all the celebrating, but I will trudge forward. Feel free to come join us for some cake. Mine will be chocolate, not gray!
