Baby It's Cold Outside

Time to switch our AC to Heat. Time to switch from iced morning coffee to hot. Time to use our fireplace and fire pit! Our weather suddenly got pretty cold, which means Matt & I had to break out the winter gear, as well as Mollie. I felt like this bundle of joy needed a post about her being all bundled up:)

I've always hated dressing for winter. It takes too long & you miss the days of just throwing on a summer dress and being done. You can't leave the house without a jacket, obviously, but as soon as you begin to enter indoor locations, the temperature is consistently different everywhere you go. So if you layer, which most of us in the South know we must do, then you might start out in 4 layers, then go down to 3, back up to 4, then down to 1. This could be because of the drastic temp change or because people don't understand what a 'comfortable' AC/Heat setting is....

Now, dressing an infant in general is pretty tough. Arms are a flyin', legs are a kickin', sometimes there is laughter, sometimes crying. It's a feat to get a full outfit on a child, I swear. And then if you're lucky, they can stay in that outfit for a few hours at least before it gets soiled one way or another:) Layering a child takes forever. Then they'll have a dirty diaper and you have to go through that whole process again. Guess that's why time management starts to have a whole new meaning for moms. I've definitely learned to give myself a few extra minutes here & there and prepare for the unexpected. Not that I have this all figured out or are always on time, don't let me fool you!

To put us all in that cold weather snuggle mood, here are some pics of Miss Molls ready for her first winter:) Cannot wait to see her look like a snowman when we're in Boone skiing for Christmas!!
