The Shoe Collection Begins

My lovely little Layla has now been walking independently for just over a month, she no longer wobbles around like shes a little bit tipsy. Now she is steady and gaining more speed every day, I don't think it will be long before she is literally running circles around me.

With the colder months creeping up on us, I'm thinking being bare foot all the time isn't such a good idea, so I decided it was time to get Layla her first ever pair of shoes.

It was interesting to find out what size she was compared to what her sister's were when they got their first shoes. Well all my other daughters got their first shoes when they were eleven months old, baring in mind they all started walking at 10 months old. My eldest two were a size 3H and my second youngest was a 2.5G.

My tiny baby at just over thirteen months old has feet that measure 3F, well technically 2.5 but you need to leave room in the shoe. I think she is going to stay the dinky one of the family, more like her nannie. My mum still only wears size 2 shoes!!

Below is a picture of her brand new shoes, they just had to be pink :) All of my children have had Start Rite shoes as their first ever pair of shoes. I love the flexibility of them and how easy they are to put on.


I can't get over just how grown up Layla is looking these days, just look at her strutting her stuff below.


It won't be long til she has a shoe collection as big as her sister's and mummy, think we may need to invest in another cupboard to put them all in ;)

So what age were your kids when they got their first ever pair of shoes?? Can you remember what size they were and what kind you bought??

  13. She is so cute, and the shoes are to die for. My only regret with not having girls lies in the clothes department...
    Have no idea what my boys wore, it was so long ago and my memory of things like this is rubbish... :)
