Last week I took Jasper to get his feet measured and to get his first pair of shoes. Since he was not confidently walking yet we went for the crawling/pre walking shoes so that they are still really flexible as his feet get used to walking and he gets more sturdy. When we were in the shop he kept curling up his toes because he wasn’t used to wearing shoes so it was really hard to get them on. Then when we did manage to put them on he pretty much refused to walk or stand in them because he had no idea what was going on. The first few times after this he kept tripping up over them so we let him wear them round the house quite a bit to get used to them.
The picture above was Jasper’s first time trying them outside of the house, when we took him to the park. He is so used to his shoes now and walks really well with or without them. We went to a bbq on Sunday and he was just doing loads of laps of the garden, it was so cute. Now when we get home after I have been at work he will toddle off to his toys, I just love watching him.
Who else thinks it’s really cute watching babies toddle around? How did your babies get on when they got shoes? I would like to know in the comments or on facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
