"It's Banana Time"

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketAbout 10 minutes after I put Manny to bed tonight, I could hear him in the kitchen.

The next thing I knew, he came into the office and asked, "Manny have banana".

I replied, "No Manny, it is bedtime."

He said to me, "No Mama, it's banana time".

It was very difficult to keep a straight face

Manny quotes

Here are some of the things Manny has been saying lately:

"One night, wake up...." This phrase could be followed by anything. "One night, wake up Manny watch Cars". "One night, wake up Manny go to library". It doesn't necessarily literally mean one night, it just means it happened.

Manny was playing with his Cars and I continued to hear him saying, "All that NOISE, NOISE, NOISE, NOISE". I was thinking where do I know that from? I asked Manny who says that? He laughs and says, "The Grinch, Mama on movie".

"Just One More Lego, Mama"

Yesterday I think I walked Manny back to his bedroom at least 10 times when it was time for his nap. Everytime he left his room he seemed to have a valid reason for leaving. Here are a few examples:

"Manny very thirsty, Mama, need a drink"
"Manny peed, need diaper change"
"Mama, Manny need just one more lego"

At this point, I brought the whole bucket of legos into his bedroom and just figured he would play for a while. I looked in his room about 10 minutes later and he was sound asleep....on top of the legos. If I wasn't so worried about the flash waking him up I would have taken his picture. It was so cute.

We spent this Thanksgiving at Governor's Restaurant. I know, I know, very exciting.

Joe had worked 110 hours in the last 5 days before Thanksgiving and was taking the day off, however, he had to stay in the area in case they needed him at the mill. So off to Governor's we went.

The food was really good, but it wasn't quite the same as hanging out with family and then getting leftovers to take home...I really miss the leftovers :).

One good thing about the meal was the YUMMY!! chocolate cake with peanutbutter frosting.

We also got to see Manny devour a plate of Thanksgiving food...turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and a whole bowl of cottage cheese. He said, "Manny like Thanksgiving food."

Visit with Uncle Phil

Uncle Phil had Veteren's Day off from school, so he came down to visit. Manny was so excited, he woke me up at 6:30 am saying,
"Mama, get up, Uncle here NOW."

I slowly opened my eyes and saw that it was still dark out and said, "Manny, there is NO WAY Uncle is here right now, it is still dark out".

Manny replied, "Yes, Mama. Uncle here now, GET UP, glasses on."
I struggled out of bed to start the day. P.S. Uncle did not get here until 9:30, a very reasonable time of day.

Manny's new clubhouse

Daddy and Manny have built themselves a clubhouse. I say that it is for both of them, because to be honest, sometimes they are about the same age (see previous Lego posts). It was actually somewhat warm one afternoon last week and Manny and I went out to play.

Better Late than never

Here are some pictures I took of Manny watching the jack-o-lantern. They didn't come out as cute as I thought they would, but I still like them.

While Mama's Away....

While I was at a baby shower today, Joe decided to take Manny to the grocery store to pick up some milk. He let Manny walk, something I NEVER do because it usually means a lot of walking and not a lot of grocery-getting. Well, anyway, what did I care, I wasn't there so I didn't have to chase him.

This is what they came home with: (Remember, they just went in for a gallon of milk)
*onion bagel
*one red apple
*one green apple
*a salad from the salad bar
*Baby bell cheese
*yogurt covered almonds
*jelly bellies

Hmmm....who do you think was doing the shopping?

"Same, Mama, the same socks"

So the other day, Manny and I were twins. He loved it.

Halloween 2007

Manny decided to be a pirate this year for Halloween. He thinks pirates say, "yay-ho, ho, ho" (a mix between Santa and a pirate).

We started the day going to Dexter to visit GG and have lunch with GG, Grandpa, Grammy, and Phyllis. Then we got to go to the school and see Uncle. GG told Manny that she didn't have any Halloween candy, Manny replied, "GG, no candy, GG have cookies". So he was all set.

After we visited in Dexter, we came home and had dinner with Daddy. No trick-or-treating this year, but we had a fun day anyway.

Comparing the two

Here is Makenzie's latest ultrasound picture compared with Manny. Manny is a couple of hours old in his picture.

We had to have a 3D ultrasound with Makenzie because this is the first picture we have seen of her face (28 weeks). She wouldn't look at the front and all we have seen is her profile.
