My first shoes

After a measuring trip to Clarkes last weekend, the quintessential children's shoe shop, we returned this Saturday with Marvellous mum and dad and Brainy bro in toe (tow- toe, geddit?) to try Darling boy’s new proper shoes for the first time.

Luckily for Darling Boy, the very helpful assistant we had last weekend, who, whilst being a very friendly chap, our poppet took umbrage against for some reason, we think it might have been his hair? Darling boy was fitted by a different, but equally firm handed helpful assistant and took a turn up and down the shop in his new shoes for us to admire. The firm hands are essential for getting new shoes on wiggly feet. Unsurprisingly Darling boy's feet are in the small side (both me and Handsome husband don’t have especially large feet, mine are rather tiny actually) There isn’t much choice in Darling boy's size, as babies with his size feet aren’t normally walking yet. But we chose a lovely pair in light brown with blue Velcro and tiny stitched bugs on them and decided to leave them on for Darling boy to trial up and down the street.

It’s so exciting to see our boy in proper shoes. It doesn’t seem like long ago that we were marvelling at the perfection of his tiny toes when he was born, and now he is walking. It won’t be long before he is running and then the world will be his oyster.
