Finally, A Little Bit of Snow!

Buddy loves looking out the window. He could probably do it all day. He even pushes his potty in front of it so he has a place to sit and puts his feet on the window sill. He loves watching the snow, but we didn't seem to get much this year! And when we did it was either way too cold to go out and then it melted before we were able to or it was too warm and it melted before we got outside. But we finally made it out in the little bit of snow that did stick on a day that wasn't too cold and made the best of it.

The only place Buddy would let us put him down was in the driveway where there wasn't any snow. He asked for a shovel and shoveled part of the driveway for us. He eventually got comfortable and started walking on the snow (and ice!).

WEEEEEE!!! Getting thrown into the air is fun everywhere all the time.

These wind chimes came with the house and they broke early on in a wind storm. They are chained onto the tree so we never took them down, and now they are one of Buddy's favorite things to play with outside. 

It's never too early to start practicing his shoveling skills, even in the grass. I love that we have a decent backyard so as Buddy grows, he and his friends have a safe place to play. It's surrounded by bushes so they can play and explore in peace. I'm so excited to watch him grow and use this space in different ways every season.

Buddy doesn't even mind that snow is cold. He doesn't seem to grasp the concept of cold. We can carry him outside to calm him down, even without a jacket, and he would stay out for an hour if we let him. I hope he continues to be that kid who never complains, despite the weather conditions. 

We even got to make a small snow person! Buddy was a little confused. I am excited to be able to get back into the snow, make snowmen, have snowball fights and go sledding without being those weird adults playing with the kids.
