Boots



Joshua wears one pair of shoes and that is all we can get on his precious little feet. He wears boots, as you can see from the picture they are getting rather worn. They are in desperate need of being replaced, but he doesn't care in the least. He wants to wear them at all times, even with his little foot PJ's! I have to beg and plead to get him to wear tennis shoes if he is wearing athletic pants or sweats, and even then it is a fight, so I keep that down to a minimum of 1-2 times a month. We have to get him a new pair, because these are worn and getting snug, but i think this pair will always have a special place in our hearts and home, because they were the first. His first obsession! I know we will have many memories of Joshua's childhood and milestones but this one to me is sad, because when he got them he seemed like a baby, and growing out of them he seems so big. So thank you boots for taking my son the places he has gone the last few months and being there for all the fits we have over shoes!

Awwwwe, that is the sweetest thing ever!! You will definitely have to save those forever!!! =)

For a time, Jonah wanted to wear nothing but his orange rain boots - didn't match a thing he had!! LOL Even with just his diaper, here he'd come w/ those boots on. Thankfully, he's moved on to other things - those things were hideous!! haha

That will be such a great picture for him to look back on later.
