According to the radio station I’m listening to this morning they say this March has been record breaking in Ottawa. The station said something like this: “Since the 1930s (which is when temperature began being recorded in O-town) there has never been a March with so little snow – 0 cm”. Can you believe it?! Zero snow in March: this is literally unheard of. And not only has there been no snow, but the beginning of April which also happens to be Easter weekend this year, is forecast to be up to 25 degrees, with a few warm days leading up to that 25 as well! Yah!

Then it donned on me: seeing as Niko’s a mid-September baby and he spent the first two weeks of his life in the NICU he has never experienced natural Summer heat on his face or felt the joys that warm winds and weather can bring to the mind and body. So he’s got a lot of firsts coming his way this weekend: a Summer day in Spring and the Easter Bunny. What a way to ring in April! No joke.


This winter I have discovered that Frasier absolutely loves snow: he enjoys pouncing around in the fresh powder, not to mention following his nose after all the scents he can find. I would love to take Niko out on walks with the pooch, but I am just not sure at what temperature it is too cold for him.  For some reason, I have -10 in my head: meaning if it is colder than -10 I think it is a touch too cold for the baby. But I have no idea where I came up with this number; it is just something I thought of yesterday.  That said, I do want Niko to get some fresh air and enjoy the winter weather. So my question is: when is it too cold for a baby? While we do have some warmer temperatures in the winter, those days seem few and far between in January and February.  Hmm…what I really want to get is a wind cover for the Baby Bjorn, that way he will be a bit more protected from the elements but can still enjoy the fresh air of winter days.
