This week, we got Maya fitted for her first pair of big-girl shoes. Now that she’s really walking with a vengeance, it was time … and she took to them like a pro!!
We went to a local children’s shoe store that carries all different kinds of shoes. She has been wearing a pair of Robeez for months now (since she began pulling up and crawling, so around ten months) but I wanted something that was good and supportive and also cute and would easily coordinate with most things she owns (yes, that was part of my decision-making process. ;))
We tried a little pair of sneakers first, but though Luis liked them, I wasn’t 100% sold. Then we saw the shoes we ended up getting and I swear, it’s like these shoes are magic. It’s like they injected her with confidence or something — she’s sassy! Since we got them Wednesday night, she has been a walking MACHINE.
Let me just say, if you haven’t had the pleasure of watching a baby learn to walk and explore her world from a whole new perspective … it is ridiculously cute! And, if I’m being completely honest … bittersweet. She will “run” to my arms, but doesn’t want to always stay there. And this is just the beginning … oy vey …
Check out Maya testing out her magic shoes!
