New Shoes. . .

Today, Brandon's mom, Tammy, Addie and I made a trip to McMahan Shoes. Addie has started pulling up over the past couple of weeks and over the past few days she has been standing on her own....for just a few seconds...but still, she is standing on her own.

I bought her some shoes about a month ago to help with her crawling but Tammy was a little concerned about her feet and felt Addie needed a bit more support. Poor thing...both her little feet have a tendency to turn to the right when she is standing and she stands on the sides of her feet at times. Brandon and his brother both had their 1st pair of shoes from McMahan's and Tammy wanted to get Addie her 1st pair from there also.

She was such a good little patron. Addie sat very still in my lap as the lady measured her foot. She measured between a 2 1/2 and a 3. Addie watched the lady very closely as she tried a 3 (they looked enormous on her tiny feet). Addie gave the sales lady a little trouble by curling her toes up so we distracted her and the lady was able to get the shoe on but felt they were a tad too big. She then tried the 2 1/2...perfect fit!

Addie was very curious about these new fixtures on her feet as she stood very proudly for the lady to check the fit. Once she was back in her car seat she began to check them out...with her mouth of course! She as been adjusting to her new shoes, figuring out how to stand up in them and crawl in them. It is unreal how much the shoes have helped her to balance. I think they are going to be a big help.

Thanks Mimi for the new shoes!

Notice Addie has already scuffed the toes!

I think those shoes are cute. I can't believe we only have two weeks until Jon and Kate. Jamie says we are crazy for leaving so early, but I don't.
