I remember it well. Baby’s First Snow.
We live in Texas. Snow is a rarity, or at least it used to be. Seems like it happens almost every winter now. But back when my little one was just a baby, I never expected snow in the winter. I figured we’d have to take a skiing trip for my daughter to experience snow. Boy was I wrong.
I looked outside the glass door. Seriously? Seriously! Not only was it snowing (totally not in the forecast), but they were the largest snowflakes I’d ever seen. In a matter of just 20 minutes, the street went from completely dry to covered in white.
That is the street behind me – this picture was taken less than an hour after the snow had begun.
I was excited and called everyone……and then the thought hit me. Baby’s First Snow. She can’t just stay inside. She’d need to experience the feel of a snowflake or two on her face, right?
It was fate that she had winter gear. We’d been gifted the cutest little winter coat and hat.
I would soon learn what every parent goes through during snow season…..how difficult it is to get a child ready to go outdoors. Ha!
As a first-time mom, I’ll admit it took a while.
First, there was the diaper change – didn’t need any mishaps while we were out in the cold. Thanks to Pampers we were covered! I can’t imagine having any type of leakage while outside in the freezing cold temperatures.
Then came the layers…..the onesie, the sleeper, the coat, the hat, etc!
I did feel a bit guilty during this process. The house was incredibly warm thanks to our heater. She was probably miserable with all the layers.
While I’d like to say she LOVED the snowflakes hitting her face, truth is, she didn’t. This is picture of her the next day, when at least the sun was shining. Still…..not incredibly happy.
Hitting those milestones aren’t always picture perfect. Baby’s First Snow – unexpected but definitely more fun for Mommy!
