Choo choo

Taking a brief break from my train engineering duties to read a book with Dad.

Windfall

Found this wallet at the Nelscos today. Sweet!

Aubrey, hop on my ride and I'll take you out for a bottle.

Nono

When Uncle Noah was in town, we were very productive together.

Now that he's gone to New York, I ask after his whereabouts. A LOT.

"Nono nono nono nono nono nono nono..."

Bibi's b-day

I had a birthday visit with Bibi bright and early this morning. I spent much of the time following Uncle Drew up and down their carpeted stairs (so much more comfortable than ours!).

I was also delighted when I discovered I could give Bibi kisses through the balusters of the stair railing!

Later I tried to serenade her with a piano rendition of happy birthday, but I'm afraid my reach exceeded my grasp.

Towhead

Before I was born, Dad said it would be "weird" if I had blond hair. So I'm weird, Dad? Am I?

Well, Mom has blond hair, and she's weird, so I guess that makes a bit of sense.

Yum

I delighted Mom this evening by eating all the dinner she'd prepared, with gusto, including veggies she thought I loathed.

Mom insisted we document this for future nights when I looks her in the eye and purposefully flings everything off of my plate.

Lug a jug

I was happy as a clam when I found a bunch of these jugs at daycare this morning!

But, less happy when I learned they did not contain moonshine.

PDA

It's comforting to know that if I ever end up in the big house, Dad and I will still be able to show how much we care for each other from behind the glass.

Elf mischief

In my hooded jumpsuit, I'm up to all sorts of elfiness.

First order of business: sweep this dusty floor. (Dad's bookshelf building is dirtying up the place!)

Next up: hide Mom's suitcase so she can't take any other trips without me.

Oh no! I've been spotted!

Morning with Mom

Mom's back from a few days away and we had a busy morning together. First we walked to the park, where I tried an unconventional approach to the slide.

I also roamed around and visited the ducks. (Turn up the volume about 8 seconds in and you can hear me say "buh-bye" to them.)

I was not happy to get back in the stroller after my stroll. I might have been a bit tuckered out.

Feelin' hot hot hot

During this unseasonably warm and sunny January weather, my friends and I have been spending plenty of time outdoors.

If this sun keeps up, I just might go shirtless!

Lovin' spoonfuls

Lately I'm really enjoying practicing with my spoon at daycare.

When I get home, though, it's finger-food-fling-o'clock!

In a nook

When I need some me time, I find a nook to secret myself away in -- whatever's available.

Even if I have to share the space with Mom's shoes.

Bread head

One of Mom's colleagues delivered some fresh baked bread the other day. I gave it a try.

OMG SO GOOD. How do I get more of it in my mouth?

I love Dad, so I'll even share with him.

Delicious, right?

Bean town

I got a chance to play with a big bag of mixed beans the other day. I scooped them, dumped them, scattered them, and poured them, but to Mom's delight I kept most of it on the blanket she had laid out.

Of course, immediately after this photo I jammed a bunch in my mouth and bit Mom's fingers repeatedly when she tried to remove them, then flew into a rage when she packed them up and stashed them away.

What can I say? An untamed beast slumbers within me, and you best beware awakening him...

Sinking in

Do you ever wake up with that not so fresh feeling?

Just climb into the sink and rinse yourself off!

...No?

Jam session

I'm getting better at rocking out on the xylophone, and actually hitting the bars.

What songs should I learn to jam along to?

Berry good stuff

Strawberries and blueberries are two of my favorite foods. Maybe that's why I like playing with Mom's berry colander so much.

Hmm...are there any left in here?

Before they go-go

During the holidays I took it very easy on Mom and Dad and woke up later than 7:00 most days...one day almost at 8:00! Now that they're back at work, I'm back to my typical 6:00-6:30 wake-ups.

I like to start the day sitting in the big chair, in my snuggly sleep duds, and look at books.

I may be up early, but at least I'm up cheery!

Explorations with Uncle Nono

This weekend I took the 'rents and Uncle Nono to Hidden Villa, where we saw all kinds of farm animals, and the adults made all kinds of goofy animal noises.

It was chilly, so they made me wear a hood. Like a goober.

But I did get to walk around. Like a boss!

I liked leaning over the sides of the pens, and peering in, ever so precariously.

New friend!

I met a new friend the other day at the park.

Hi guy! When will you be ready to play?

Tunnel time

I still really enjoy my time in our awesome collapsible tunnel. Mom and Dad try to store it away, but I like to make them take it out again, almost every day. Hilarity ensues!

Family time

I have really enjoyed all my quality time with Mom and Dad over the winter vacation.

Even if they found it a little tiring!

Happy 2014!

I hope your whole year is as full of delight I was when Dad handed me this cracker.

I mean, a whole cracker!
