Mateo was born on January 15, 2010 at 12:03 p.m. Since then, he’s been filling his parents’ lives with joy, wonder, bafflement, exhaustion, and food splats. His mom, Jennifer, stays home with him and works as a writer and editor. His dad is a packaging and graphic designer. He has two cat brothers, Mr. George and Oscar.
Mateo enjoys playing with his Ugly Dolls (Marshmallow, Vlad, and Hector), giving his parents sloppy kisses, and playing patty-cake with his granny. He is working on figuring out the whole walking thing.
