First pair of "kicks"
The girls spent the night with Matt's parents on Friday so we could have a date night (YAY) so they decided to take them to a place called "Sykes" in Homewood to buy their first pair of shoes.
I have been anti shoes since they were born, but they are on the move now and since it is getting colder, I think the barefooted look may bring about some unwanted attention. This place was amazing. They have so many cute little shoes. And they were so busy that we had to take a number!
They measured the girls feet and Hannah is a 4.5 extra-extra wide and Leah is a 3.5 extra-extra wide. Sad I know. They will grow out of it! Anyway, we decided on these little flexible white tennis shoes so they could get better at walking. And of course we also had to get a pair of brown suede mary-jane type shoes for their dressier outfits. Yes I know they are only a year old, but they have to be coordinated on their outings!
Hannah was pretty proud of her shoes, and kept kicking her feet or stomping the ground with a big smile on her face. Leah likes to try to take them off, which hasnt gotten better as she has gotten more used to them.
The good thing is, the shoes make Leah a little taller, so she can now ride her "bounce and spin zebra" that she is normally about a cm too short for. She was VERY excited.
The shoes make the girls look so much older. I dont know why, but they do. They look like little toddlers. Speaking of which, we turned the carseats around yesterday so now when I look back I see these little girls with pig tails and tennis shoes looking back at me. I say it all the time, but they grow up so fast!
