We have about 4 inches of snow on the ground so I decided to take Julia out to play. Last year, she HATED the snow and was done after about 2 minutes. At the time, she had just learned to walk, which meant she was unsteady anyway, and walking in "fuill snow gear" is a difficult task in and of itself. What a difference this year. This time, she cried when I told her it was time to go in! She was still very cautious walking but, she managed to go up and down the small hill in the backyard, which is something that in the past, she has had difficulty doing, even without the snow as an added obstacle. She played standing up only and wouldn't even sit in the sled with me (or by herself) which I think may have been a sensory thing (perhaps she thought she would get wet or cold if she sat, depsite being covered head to toe in water/cold proof gear). Either way though, she had a blast and, I somehow managed to get an adorable closeup picture of her!
