Last year I didn't really have Zoie go out in the snow because she was too little, not walking, and generally would consider it an awful idea. The first good snow I did take her out. At first she thought it was great, it was fun to be outside again.

Then she touched it...and it wasn't fun anymore. She wouldn't wear her gloves and the cold snow was something she didn't like. She'd get some on her and she'd say her classic "stuck, stuck" as she'd quickly try to wipe it off. She was content to just run up and down the freshly scooped sidewalk and driveway.

Interestingly enough, she hasn't asked to go outside since.

Zoie and her blocks

Zoie loves her blocks. She loves build towers and plays with these a lot. She also plays with duplos and other blocks.

As you can see, she also likes to knock them down. This has caused a little tension in our house. I let her make quite a mess with blocks and even considered getting more. Mark would like to hide the blocks because they make such a mess. Let's just say since I'm the one picking them up 85% of the time...we still have them.
