Snow baby

It snowed yesterday and Justin was outside plowing the driveway. Jyllian wanted to be outside too, so I told her she needed to get on her snowpants to go outside. She marched right into her room and got her snowsuit and boots and came in the kitchen. She looked at me and said "Outside?" So we put on her snowsuit and outside we went.

It was very cold outside but she didn't seem to care. She just stood there and watched her dad get the plow reading and plow the driveways around the neighborhood.

Before long we were sledding and having a grand ol' time. We were outside for well over an hour and she loved every minute of it. We walked, we played, and we sledded.

Jyllian can now say "outside, snow, cold, brrrrrr, snowman, and ice." If she is ready to go outside she will go and get her jacket and then put it on and stand next to the door and say "Outside, momma outside." She'll either continue this until we give in and take her outside, or she gets bored standing there and finds something else to do.
