Daddy needed a new cell phone...so Thomas got his first pair of shoes.
Do you have any idea how long it takes to get a new cell phone? If you did, you would understand why I took our two small children and walked around the mall while he attempted to "close the deal."
We went in every girly store before I got the bright idea to get Thomas a pair of "walkers." I figured he was so close to walking, maybe the new shoes would inspire him.
Thomas has several pair of just for fun shoes, and he is not a fan of having them on his feet, so I wasn't sure how this was going to go.
Thankfully though he let me put them on him and tie them up without much fuss. He complained a little and tried to get them off. But, letting him out of the stroller to "try them out" seemed to do the trick. He seemed intrigued by them, and decided to ask the other baby what he thought.
I left the shoes on his feet as we checked out and they managed to remain on his tootsies until time for bed.
And for those of you who are laughing....I always have my camera on me, and I wasn't going to miss out on this exciting "first" without proper photo documentation.
