Manuel is a bright and cheerful boy. His nannies are proud of how smart he is. Manuel’s favorite toys are building blocks, and we love hearing his belly laugh as he watches his block towers crash to the floor. It’s exciting to discover new things that make Manuel happy. Thank you for your continued prayers as we care for him.

Manuel enjoyed everything December included—especially the caroling! He loved showing off his musical abilities as he loudly sang along with the guitars. He is a true entertainer, and we love that about him. We look forward to celebrating the new year with Manuel.

Manuel is practicing a lot of new words! His favorite is “hao” which means “good.” He especially likes using “hao” after someone asks how his food tastes. Another favorite is to give a loud “buh-bye” whenever someone leaves the room. He’s so proud of himself, and can’t help but giggle in delight afterward!

Manuel is curious and sweet, and he enjoys playing with the younger babies in his room. He learns best by mimicking his nannies, and he blows the sweetest goodbye kisses as he exclaims “mwaaah!”

As Manuel grows up, he’s discovered how much he loves to play with toys. Right now his favorite toy is a puppy-dog on wheels. It makes him laugh a lot!
