Shoes, Shoes, Shoes...

I've recently diagnosed AB with having a shoe infatuation. She seriously loves shoes!



If she gets quiet and away from me for 2 seconds, I can find her in my closet, pulling out some shoes. She takes them from my closet and distributes them throughout the house. It is nothing to find random shoes laying around anywhere and everywhere...





If I don't have any shoes on (which I rarely do inside the house), she brings me some and INSISTS that I put them on. Nope, she doesn't "talk" and ask me to put them on--- she grunts and bends her little self down and tries to lift my feet up and put them on me herself. She claps when I put them on and then she goes on about her business.....only to return several minutes later to make sure I still have them on. If not, she finds them or a different pair and we repeat the process. If you were to drop in on us, it would not be out of the ordinary for me to have a t-shirt, gym shorts/pants & leopard print flats on. (those are her favorite).






She also loves to play in her closet and with her own shoes. Her favorite in her closet is her pink crocs. What is it with kids and crocs? Why do the love them so much? She got her first pair the day we found out she was a girl. (My B-I-L, Adam, has bought both of my children's first pair of shoes--- the day we found out what they were. Cooper's first pair were ostrich skin cowboy boots and Aunt Lauren & Uncle Adam picked pink crocs for Baby Sister the day we found out she was a GIRL!) The crocs were the smallest size they make and they have just recently finally fit her! She LOVES them and wants them on ALL.THE.TIME. Even if it's just one of them!


Our most recent shoe episode was yesterday....


Can you tell what's wrong with this picture???





Nope, its not the fact that one maryjane is white and the other is off-white....



It's that these sweet little girl shoes are being sported by Cousin Willie....



We were playing in her room yesterday, when AB went to her closet and returned carrying these shoes and decided Willie needed to put them on.

Sizing up Willie's feet

Poor Willie... at least he's comfortable enough in his boyhood to wear them proudly!

I've got a feeling that Willie will start crawling sooner than later, since he spends a couple days a week at our house, and he's going to want to get away from Little Miss...

Speaking of precious, she's napping and I've got a closet full of shoes to pick up & put away!!!

Too cute. Why can't our girls let the boys just be boys? Allie's forever trying to put a bow in Gus' hair!

I love it!!!! I love how she is sizing up his feet!! I definately think you should have let her put a bow in his hair it would have complete his outfit! hehehe =) I don't think Willie minds he loves his AB they are BIG friends! I know this will not be the last time he plays dress up with her or any of his other friends everyone his age are ALL mostly girls!

Oh my heavens to betsy....look at that child! She is so adorable. I can just see her smiling, trying on shoes. Whenever I think of her, I can just see her precious smile in my mind. You do know that she has the cutest smile, right? I know you are her momma and you already think so, but let me tell you...she has the cutest smile ever. And I'm thinking the picture of Willie with the t-strap mary janes is a total rehearsal dinner pic.

Mollie kate is the same way with shoes! I mean the exact same way as AB! She will try to put them on my feet all the time! She is so stinking cute. Just wait till she is older and wants every pair of shoes she sees in the store!
