What is happening to my baby??? Eli is on his 3rd shoe size since coming home. He has grown about 3 inches and, luckily, has only gained about 2lbs. Sigh...he was supposed to stay small for at least a little while. He had just started walking when he was placed in our arms forever. Now he is running everywhere, climbing everything, doing somersaults, almost jumping, has a serious throwing arm (a lefty so far!), and is saying new words almost everyday. But, have I mentioned how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE hearing the very fast pitter-patter of his feet and his silly squeals of delight as he runs around the house?
Eli came home comfortably wearing these shoes! A size 4, which he quickly outgrew within about 3 weeks. I bet he could curl his toes around the edge now!
He moved onto size 5, which lasted about 7 weeks or so as his toes slowly started to creep over the edge and we were on the last 1/4 inch of velcro.
He is now in a size 6, but probably not for long...
Oh, and can someone tell me why children's shoes are so freakin' expensive??? Good grief!! Thank goodness I found the clearance rack today and bought the next size up, which he will probably wear for a month!
