I always have. Like wanna eat 'em up love. Baby feet, toddler feet I LOVE. When they become big kid feet and above, I don't. do. feet. ewwww.
Even when I was pregnant with Lily, her feet were prominent. I mean the girl has some big feet.
26 weeks, 6 days
I actually exclaimed at that ultrasound to George, "Oh my God she has YOUR feet!"
She wears size 4.5 (if I can find them) or 5 shoes. Half sizes are hard to find in baby shoes. Which is DUMB. Size 4 is too small and 5 is too big. And my girl has big feet. When Andrew's dad was here a few weeks ago, she was chattering at him and he (who never notices anything & isn't all about babies) said, "She has some BIG feet." Yep.
I guess because I love baby feet so much and I think they're just an accessory before babies can walk, I don't do shoes much. Pretty much now, Lily wears shoes only when we're out and that's basically because it's gotten cold.
Don't get me wrong, I think baby shoes are adorable. I'm just too
cheap frugal to spend $$ on shoes for a baby whose feet will grow out of them before she really gets to wear them. On the other hand, I did buy 4 pairs of shoes for her for $14.98 total when I had a really great sale/coupon combo at Payless. And I've picked up a couple of pairs of sandals for next year that were wayyyy too good a deal to pass up. Like $1.99 for an adorable pair of purple flower Carter's sandals. Can't go wrong with 2 bucks!
My girl doesn't care whether she has shoes on, shoes off, socks on or off, one sock on and one off, bare feet. Whatever. She doesn't care.
I feel pretty much the same. Other than I don't do one off, one on. Or wet. NEVER wet socks.
After Lily was born, I literally would just squeeze and kiss her sweet little baby pigs ALL. THE. TIME. I still do. It's one of my favorite baby things.
We play "This Little Piggy" about 83720457294 times a day. She always laughs and I always get to kiss on those piggies.
Earlier this week, she was standing watching Yo Gabba Gabba (so she could dance, of course) and I caught sight of her little piggies sticking out of her pants. :) I LOVELOVELOVE them.
Aren't they just adorable????
until they become big kid feet. ha
