One of the newest challenges in my life these days involves two tiny arms, two tiny legs, one chubby face, and multiple layers of knitwear. That's right, with the arrival of winter, I have become acquainted with the art of baby-bundling. Let me tell you, it's not easy keeping a squishy 20 lb human warm in the chilly winter months. Thanks to hand-me-downs, though, we've ended up with a small collection of baby snow suits. So our daily dressing ritual this time of year goes a little something like this: cloth diaper, long-sleeved onesie, baby sweatpants (or leggings + leg warmers), sweater or hoodie, tiny socks and tiny snow boots, then a snowsuit on top of that, a mini knitted hat, & baby mittens. We go through this routine every time we need to run to the market or take Nico out for a walk. Each time I dress her up, I think of that scene from "A Christmas Story" where the mom bundles up her son so ridiculously that he literally can't move. I am totally going to be one of those Moms. I am not satisfied until my daughter resembles a giant marshmallow (a toasty warm marshmallow!). Lucky for me, little Biet isn't old enough to protest yet. Miraculously, she doesn't yet seem to mind the relentless layering. So bring it on, winter snowstorms- I've got this baby-bundling thing down.
