You have to forgive Maddie for not being overly concerned about snow in October. At the ripe age of 13-weeks-old, the baby has already had to deal with an earthquake and a hurricane evacuation.
When Maddie and her parents entered the store to go shopping, it was cold and windy. 40 minutes later when they were leaving, there was a full blizzard raging. PaPa pulled right up to the entrance – but still had to get Maddie into the car.
Maddie gave her Dad a knowing smile as he picked her up in the car seat and ran for the car. Just as he popped the door open, he could see the baby frantically trying to catch some of that snow on her tongue. She really wanted a flake and as luck would have it, one landed right on her tongue. Her eyes went wide with surprise and then delight as she snagged her first flake.
Once we got home, it was time to expose the baby to the elements once again. The wind whipped PaPa and the baby as they trudged up the stairs – but Maddie could not have been happier. She may actually turn out to be a real-live cold-weather woman!
Even once we got inside – Maddie still looked like she was ready for action, but her snow time adventures had come to an end.
After some food and a change – it was time for Maddie to try out some toasty winter-ware and thanks to her Aunt Jill and Uncle Jim, we had just the ticket. Let’s face it, everyone knows that when the cold weather gets going, it’s time to break out the MONKEYS!!
Earlier this year, Jim and Jill had gotten Maddie a full-length stunning sleeper with a chimp on the hip and one for each foot to ensure maximum monkey-warmth for the baby. So while the snow and wind raged outside – Maddie and the monkeys slept soundly all through the night.
