Cate wore shoes (these shoes) for the first time today.
Some of you are probably thinking ... Gosh, Kristin, she's six months old and you're JUST NOW putting shoes on the girl.
Then others of you are probably thinking ... Goodness, Kristin, she's only six months old. Why are you putting shoes on her?
Well, first, it was a hot summer. Why would I put shoes (or socks for that matter) on her? So the weather is cooling off, and socks seem necessary. And, well, Cate likes to pull her socks off. I think it's the challenge. And then once she has them off, she decides they are good to chew on. These days EVERYTHING* is good to chew on.
So I figured shoes would help keep her socks on, mostly just when we're out in public. Yeah, good idea ... until she realized about 10 minutes into our day that she could push one shoe off with the other foot.
Then there was that sock. Yep, it came off.
But only one.
She hasn't figured out how to get BOTH shoes off yet.
And, hey, the shoes are quite cute. I purchased them at a yard sale this summer for a couple of dollars.
* In addition to socks, Cate especially enjoys chewing on my drinking straws. Hey, at least she knows where the straw is supposed to go. She also enjoys reaching for cell phones and remote controls. Are children just programmed (ha, PROGRAMMED ...) for things with buttons?!
