We did go outside yesterday! And it was still cold. Brr. But it is refreshing to pop out for a bit, and I am a sucker for bright red baby cheeks.
I am still learning ways to keep little ones warm, and I have had a bit of a dressing conundrum. Real pants, things like jeans, corduroys, etc, are not well liked around here. The girls have realized they aren't that comfortable (and who can blame them?) and flat out boycott them. So the girls are perpetually in leggings, which is just fine by me, but really doesn't keep them warm in the middle of winter. I tried my hand at Ginny's leg warmers tutorial, and am happy to report that they are a hit! Zosia likes them because she believes that leg warmers are something that a ballerina would wear, and Lily decided that she does like them, even though there was a bit of frustration at first that they are neither pants nor socks. Oh well.
But the real good news is that they are made out of wool and seem to keep the girls a bit more comfortable outside. Now to resolve the issue of keeping a 1-year old's hands (who politely refuses to wear mittens) warm in the cold. Any ideas?
