Oh this baby…
He is such a stinker. He is officially 10 months now! Actually he will be 11 months on August 12.
He has been crawling now for almost 5 months and still he opts to be carried most places. I am perfectly fine with that.
He was in such a hurry those early months and then he finally discovered crawling and was like “that’s as far as I need to go”.
Works for me! I am hoping he decides to wait at least another month or so but he is able to stand on his own (not holding onto anything) and trying to take steps so really I don’t think we have much longer of this crawling stuff.
He is my first baby to go through the crawling stage during the Summer time. His poor little knees have calluses on them! Ouch.
Now that he is cruising on everything though the world is challenging for those little feet stepping on hot and rocky surfaces.
It was time to break down and force this shoe hating baby to wear a pair of shoes.
Yesterday I posted on the FB group asking for names of shoes folks like best.
Mandy mentioned Keene’s but I couldn’t find them in person at the local mall but I did manage to find some very similar at the Stride Rite store. They were having a one day sale for 25% additional off of the clearance price.
Just about the only way I would purchase a $40 pair of baby shoes that he will out grow in about a month. (I am cheap like that.)
So I bring them home…all excited in my hope that perhaps he will decide to like these!?!
I should have known better….
Yep, shoes are clearly going to be something he just has to get used to.
Tomorrow we shall try talking him into liking them again….
Then we will hit the park!
