Sophie’s First Snow


I’ve been waiting a long time to show Sophie her first snow. So when a few flakes started falling last week, I quickly fed her some rice cereal, put her in her snow suit and, because it really wasn’t collecting on the ground, decided we’d go for a morning run. (This jogging stroller is my most recent Craigslist purchase. Clearly I need to adjust the straps the next time we go running.) I laugh when I look at this picture. Sophie looks like she’s thinking, Seriously? This is who I got as my mother?


But we had fun.
