A Good Shoe is Hard to Find
The smaller shoes in the photo are of some cute silver leather sneakers I bought for Archie. They look great on him and were warm in winter - until he worked out how to pull them off. So now I'm paranoid about losing one. They'll probably only fit him for another month or two, and then will definitely go in to my bag of "treasured" baby items.
The red pair (above) are some I was bidding for on ebay before being sniped at the last second (doh! don't you just hate that! unless you're the sniper of course..) This shoe company from Spain makes character shoes for kids that are just too adorable for words! Eleanore has some pink spotted princess ones that make any outfit look special and when Mim was a toddler she wore out a pair of red and white bird ones. I also have a fantastic pair of red and blue pirate sandals tucked away for when Archie is walking. They are one of the things I keep an eye out for an ebay. I just wish they came in adult sizes!
