Post from Tiffany! I know, I know, this has been a long time in coming and I apologize. I really appreciate KJ’s frequent posts and I wish I could be so diligent!
Andrew is now 20 months old and he enjoys being at the center of our lives. Since I haven’t posted in a while, I will try to post more frequently to catch up where I left off.
Andrew loves the snow! We took him outside back in November for our first major snowstorm and he enjoyed it. The trouble was the snowsuit. Last year Grammy had bought him a very cute LL Bean snowsuit and we had planned on it fitting him this year too. Well, my big boy was a bit cramped in the suit. When he took his first step out in the snow, he fell over and completely whitewashed himself in the fresh snow. His snowsuit was so tight that he couldn’t get his arms out in front of him to brace his fall. His cute little face was covered in snow, which was funny at first, but then sad, as he was upset.
No worries, Grammy came through with a new snowsuit to fit more comfortably. After the whitewashing was done we pulled him down the street in his sled. Every time we’d stop, he’d sign “more” and on we went. You may remember that last year he leaned way back in his sled when he was pulled, and as you can see, there has not been much of a change this year. He does sit upright much better when he isn’t being pulled through a foot of snow though.
Nowadays he loves to rake the snow. He has a little rake from the Fall (but no shovel) so raking has been fun. He is also overjoyed if he happens upon a little puddle of melted snow that he can stomp around in.
