New Snow Suit

Emma got a new snowsuit for her birthday. The day after, we decided it would be a good idea to try it on her to make sure it fits. We're not sure if she's ever worn a snowsuit before. When we asked if she would like to try it on, she wrinkled up her nose and shook her head no...she does this when she doesn't like something. When we convinced her to try it on (well, not so much convinced, but told her it was the way it was going to be!) she reluctantly pulled on the snowpants followed by the jacket. Terry and I had to have a little chuckle as it is a little big on her...(good for a growing girl!) She looked like she had a great big torso and no legs. See picture below....

The second picture is taken about ten minutes later. Emma was so-not-impressed about the snowsuit until we told her to go look in the mirror. Well, this changed everything! After that, she didn't want to take it off! She INSISTED on wearing it while she watched her Cars movie...too funny. It was all fun and games until she ran up to me and said "mama, Emma go pee!" She always leaves peeing until she can barely hold it anymore, so we had to rip off the snowsuit in a hurry!
At that point, I hung the snowsuit up in our front closet to save it for a cold snowy day. But when it came time to go out later that afternoon, Emma ran to the closet and told us she wanted to wear it. It was a very warm fall afternoon, and it took quite a bit of convincing Emma that she would look a little crazy wearing her snowsuit in the sun!

  1. Hey guys! I know you're not wearing snowsuits yet, but David has worn shorts to school this week! We've had some very nice warm weather, so he's still spending lots of time outside! He's outgrown the first pants we had for him, so I'm gonna have to do some shopping before the weather gets cold! Take care! Miriam
