Baby gets a new pair of shoes

Nathan is our little one. He’s growing up, oh so very fast. He is my love, my heart, I love him so much… it actually hurts.

My little buster of a boy rarely has something that did not previously belong to at least one of his brothers. Clothing, sure… blankets, why not… toys, of course… shoes… well…ok. A few months ago, Nathan outgrew a pair of red racing stripe Robeez that I bought for him while I was pregnant and nesting. In the meantime, I have been pulling out barely worn Stride Rite shoes from our past. I kept everything, this little boy has more than he could ever need…
Yesterday, I decided it was time that my little one had his first pair of real shoes.  So after naptime, I loaded all three boys up and headed for the Stride Rite. We were the only ones in the store and Nathan was terrified to have the attention on him. He actually tried to get back into the stroller several times, which I assure you, never happens. He pushed the stroller out of the store and halfway shoplifted the shoes we were trying on him by running out into the mall hallway. However, we finally found the perfect fit and style for my little tornado.  He left the store in the stroller wearing his new big boy shoes.

This morning, he got up and the first thing he did was put on his new shoes.   He dug them out of our shoes basket and he wore them all morning with his pajamas. He seemed excited and proud to have them. He’s my sweet little one… and I love him so.  Here he is in his new shoes....
