Snow Days

Winter has a firm grip on Northeast Ohio. Now that Paige is older, she had developed an appreciation for playing the the white stuff. She loves getting all bundled up in her snow pants, coat, hat and mittens and making snow angels in the yard.

Sophie wants so badly to join her big sister, but she is simply not old enough. Instead, Sophie will stand at the storm door watching Paige banging on the glass saying "please, please!" This is a tough age for her. Each day she grows bigger and develops skills that distance her from simply being a baby. At the same time, she is not quite old enough to hang with her big sis. Hang tight, Sophie, give it another year or so and, my to mama's chagrin, you will be running around with the big kids before too long. In the meantime, let's enjoy cozy time together inside the house.
