Rolling in the new year

Mom and Dad brought a soccer ball on our last trip to the park. Check out the results!

These dribbling skills look promising, eh, Grandpa B?

Multiple choice



or tunnel?

I can't decide which is most fun! I think I'll need to do LOTS of investigating...

Chilly morning strolls

Sometimes they let me run freeee! (Thanks, Dad.)

And sometimes they super-insulate me and trap me in a stroller. (Thaaaanks, Mom.)

Fun with Mom and Dad on the slide!

And an existential crisis next to the ball room.

Twinsies, part...something

Uncle Drew stopped by this morning. His outfit looked awfully familiar...

and awfully snuggly!

To O.D. on cuteness we decided to pose alike, too.

Merry Christmas to all

Santa came! I opened presents on Christmas morning with Mom and Dad.

And got quite the haul at the Veltmans -- including this sweet ride!

In the evening we celebrated a nice birthday dinner for Grandpa B back at home.

It was great fun -- even if Mom and Dad wouldn't let me have any champagne.

Packages tied up with strings

Packages are starting to pile up under (and on) the tree. No matter what's inside, they're fun to carry around.

And tug on their curly, shiny string ringlets.

Mom and Dad say tomorrow, the mystery will be over. Very exciting!

Light it up!

Took Mom and Dad and the Nelscos out for a stroll in San Carlos to check out some Christmas lights. It was very festive -- and frigid!

Packages, packages

Hey, Mom, we got another package! And there were packages INSIDE the package!

I put it on the tree, like you said.

Wait, under the tree? Weird.

Baby huddle

On our last day before the vacation, my daycare bros and I were enjoying the new room setup at daycare, which has a cool hiding nook.

Thursday, December 19, 2013


Allow me to share a video in which I demonstrate a couple of my newly acquired skills:

  • turning our Christmas lights on and off
  • saying "Dada" and "Mama" (and knowing what they mean)

Mom and Dad are particularly fond of the latter.

Reindeer friend

During the weeks leading up to Christmas, we Veltmans like to spend our days in the living room where everything is very festive.

And where we make new friends!

Out for a stroll

Mom and I like to take afternoon jaunts to grab the mail. Sometimes I collect twigs along the way.

Sometimes I don't even eat them! (Rarely.)

Distracted shopper

Hmm...this cart is heavier than my cart at home. Maybe I should grab the camera instead!

Glove love

Two Gloves Veltman, that's what they call me!

Mom says if I love wearing their dishwashing gloves so much, she might sign me up for some more elf work. Uh-oh...

P.S. "Uh-oh" is one of my new words lately!

Sick babies get breakfast for dinner...followed by maple-flavored crunchies (aka baby cheetos).

That's what they say, right? Feed a cold [junk food]?

Early morning fitness

Just like Mom, I like to start my days off with some physical fitness. She prefers running, I prefer nude tool box weight lifting.

To each their own!

Oh dreidel I will play

I like when Mom spins our dreidel. I like to try spinning it too! I've got the wrist twist down, I just need to do it faster.

Tuesday, December 10, 2013


I make it easy for Mom and Dad to know when I'm hungry, too.

Or bored. Or teething. Hmm, I guess I do kind of leave it up to guesswork!

Ladies' man

Went to a holiday party with Mom and Dad this weekend, where you know I was creepin' on all them older ladies.

With my festive holiday duds, who could resist me?

Lounge act

I'm training for my part-time job as a live model for community college art classes.

Tuesday, December 3, 2013


Mom tried to snap a picture of me quietly reading my magazine. But I noticed her turn around and that mellow moment was over right quick!

Jewish heritage!

Dad taught me how to light the Hanukkah candles and say the blessing.

He also taught me that he's a magician!

It's pajama time

It's officially December, so time to bust out my Christmas PJs!

I didn't realize when I put them on that Mom would make me do what she calls "Christmas elf work."

Pretty mree (an in-joke for Aunt Sara)

On the hunt for an awesome Christmas tree with Dad and Uncle Nono.

Evaluating possible trees...

I spotted a good one! Uncle Nono and I consult.

Perfect tree identified, we waited for it to get wrapped and strapped to the roof of the car.

Later, when we got home, Mom and Dad showed me how we decorate the tree with ornaments, like this soft blue whale.

I helped!

I'm building up my spelunking skills, starting with the laundry basket.

Giving thanks

I am thankful for family.

And pillow forts made by Uncle Drew!

I celebrated Thanksgiving with the usual gluttony: pumpkin pie (a tentative yum) and green beans (good for gnawing).

Hope you all had a wonderful, grateful day.
