One thing I'm not so much enjoying about baby-rearing up here in the great white brownish north? The car seat + winter coat thing. What do you DO, northern mamas? Bundle the baby into a coat, stuff her into the car seat, struggle to tighten the car seat straps to an acceptable level of snugness (while she pitches a fit), and drive off with your baby unable to move even a centimeter? Or do you put the baby in the (cold) car seat sans coat, give her a warm blanket for the ride, and then find a way to finagle a baby into a big puffy coat in the parking lot of your destination, usually resulting in a crabby baby and a frustrated toddler SCREAMING HIS HEAD OFF because you're not getting him OUT of his car seat fast enough for his liking? (And no, I can't let him out of his car seat to roam the SUV while I bundle the sister, because last time I tried THAT I ended upwith a Diet Mountain Dew poured down the front of my radio. Total PITA, either way. So what do you do? Because it's becoming problematic, and it's not even snowy yet. Fill me in, wise winter weather mommies.
But one thing I really am enjoying? My baby in a hat. You rock that hat, Miss V. And the five others I've already bought you since we moved here. WHAT? It gets cold! She's too pretty to be cold.
