Finally! I feel like we live in the very last place in the country to get some snow! We were excited to introduce Malachi to the snow, but I kind of figured he would not like it very much since he does not have an appreciation for the cold.
Regardless, we bundled everyone up and headed outside for a few minutes!
We got some cute video of him just looking around but eventually (after daddy put some snow on his head) he decided that this snow stuff really wasn't for him.
He was also quite upset because he couldn't walk around in the snow. His pants and jacket were too big and puffy so he really couldn't move. I don't know why, but for some reason it made me think of the movie "A Christmas Story". Are we bad parents for laughing at our poor little boy who was hating his first snow?!?
Once he got in Daddy's arms everything was better and he was okay with looking at the snow, he just didn't want to get up close and personal with it.
I had to briefly bring Eli out and get a picture of him in his very first snow. He thought it was a little bright out, and wouldn't even open his eyes to check it out. Oh well, at least we got a quick picture before I rushed him back inside :)
Eli is doing great with his weight gain. He must know he has a lot of weight to gain to catch up with big brother. Today he weighed in at 6 lbs 12 ounces. His starting weight was 5 lbs 5 ounces so in 3 weeks that is awesome!!!
But clothes are still a challenge for little mister. He is still very much in preemie size as all the newborn stuff falls off him. Last night I put him in a newborn gown and found him like this:
We are having lots of fun with our boys! It is a big challenge, but our life priorities have definitely changed. To wake up this morning and be so excited to see the snow so that we could take Malachi out and let him experience it (even if he hated it). Kids just give life a totally different perspective and purpose and I would never want to go back to the way things were before.
