I don't really check the weather forecast so I never know what it's going to be like outside, and I had no idea it was going to be winter when we woke up today. I had to take April to the train station at 7:30 am so she could meet my mom in Toronto for a trade show thing, and it was cold and icy! Luckily my parents sent Parker a snowsuit to keep warm last week, and it looks like it got here just in time. It's pretty cool because you can pretty much just drop your baby into it and zip him up -- there aren't really any belts or waistbands or other difficult things to manoeuvre, and the little hands and feet have extra fabric that folds over and covers them up so you don't even need mittens or boots! Here's a photo of Parker getting ready to brave the wintery climate:

The hood is a little bit too big for his head, but he fits every where else! And after we got home this morning, it was time to practice sitting up without any support. As you can see, Parker thinks this is pretty fun:

Good luck, daddy! Have a wonderful two days with Parker while Mommy is getting pampered in Toronto. Parker looks great in his new snowsuit. Can't wait to see him next Wednesday.

He'll probably be sporting the new snowsuit on Wednesday if this weather keeps up!
