Now we have a walking, running, climbing toddler who is very interested in the snow, and we have no snowsuit. So we improvise.
This was the process that led to our snow adventure this morning.
Olivia stands at the door whining to go "Side?" She's wearing the first layer of clothing...tights, onesie and socks.
Over her tights, we put on a heavy set of sweatpants. After each layer of clothing, she ran to the window to make sure the snow was still there.
Over the tights and pants go the overalls. Just something to keep her midsection safe from snow getting under her clothes.
Next comes the hoodie sweatshirt! Olivia tries to protect her feet by putting her gloves on them, but I patiently explain that her feet won't fit in her boots with gloves on.
The boots. They are the only ones I could find in her box of hand-me-down shoes, and I think they worked out quite well (even if they are a little, um, colorful?).
Next step...tape those gloves to her arms. They kept falling off yesterday.
The coat and hat complete the "look".
"Geez, Mom, I'm hot. Can we go play in the snow now?"
