High, gray clouds and 40F: good enough for a short sledding trip on this, the first full day of winter. Is. is too young to say for certain how well she likes the wintertime outdoors. When I was her age, I was the cold-weather innocent of the family; fifteen minutes in the snow was ten minutes too long (minute one: yeah, snow!; minute two: dang, it's cold?!; minute three: ice-cracking shrieks). Bring me some cocoa with marshmallows! Is. was a little bit like that today, although, to her credit, she never got to the shrieking part and we were also bumping up against nap time.

Merry Christmas to you all! I love that first photo--she looks like she's describing the one that got away.

Thanks, Joanna. With a bit more use, the suit should become looser and easier for her to get around in. But you're right, when she's packed into it, she holds pretty well to the form of the coat.
