Awww, another milestone for sweet little Parissa. Question is, how is mommy handling her little girl growing up so fast?? lol.
This story reminds me of my little Noah - his grandma chastised us months ago for not putting him into shoes so one day she took matters into her own hands & took him to a fancy shoe store to have him fitted for StrideRite shoes. I'm not a big believer in shoes for a non-walking baby except for soft soled so I rarely put the hard soled ones on Noah.
She now believes the reason he's not walking (he's 13 1/2 months) is because I don't put the shoes on him everyday. But I'm fairly certain that he's about to walk anyway so then those shoes will go right back on him when he goes out. The shoes are heavy and his feet feel so hot when I take them off of him. I actually bought him some sandals at k-mart the other day for when he does start walking and wants to go outside.
Sorry to rant on - jen
Well I don't believe in shoes for little ones either.. heck they are the first things that come off when I walk into the house... all my kids walked at different times.. the first one at 12m the second one at 9 and the third one is 12 1/2m and we are still waiting.. no rush haha... We did get her some of the softer soled shoes at stride rite.. the bendable rubber ones.. but we use the robeez and she doesn't mind those.. my second only wore robeez until she was she was 2 haha... infact I want a pair for myself!!!
Amanda... it hurts me that she is growing so fast.. I always say that they are babies for so little time and teenagers forever haha... She is my last :( so it is so bitter sweet
I just switched jacob to actual shoes not too long ago.. before that we just used the Target robeez knock-offs also... i make sure I always choose shoes with flexible soles..
Enjoy your trip... sounds like so much fun!!
