Size five. That’s what size foot Remy has now. We know because I decided what with all this short-distance toddling and cruising going on, we might want to start using shoes for the outdoor adventures. He’s bopping around on things harder than clover and sand– yes, he’s adventuring into wood chips and gravel.
The other week, I looked at my sleeping babe and thought, dang that kids feet look bigger today. Later that same day, Gary said, gee Remy’s feet look bigger. Do baby feet grow a size overnight? The previous pair of size 3 Croc-looking knock off’s were cuter than they were functional. They fit him not THAT long ago, but now I couldn’t get them over his toes.
We were at the mall (egad) for another reason and found a baby shop with shoes on sale, so we bought them. I don’t know how long they’ll fit, because they don’t have any room for more growth. We’ll see.
The first time we tried them, he found them disorienting. He kept raising his feet extra high because he couldn’t feel his foot leaving contact with the ground. The second time went better. Then I took the opportunity to take some pictures of the happy guy who seems to have napped away the worst of his cold. Lucky guy.
