I've never really been a "shoe girl." I mean I like them and all, I just don't have a ton, or care to spend much money on them (unless they are practical, like my danskos).  But something about little shoes just gets me! I have LOVED finding cute shoes for Kendall (especially when they are on sale, or show up in our hand-me-down bins!). Our shoe basket was overflowing as she is transitioning sizes yet again, so tonight we played "The Shoe Game" and tried on each pair and decided if they fit or not. This collection of out grown shoes is my favorite so far in her shoe life time. These shoes were worn by my toddler, with her ever emerging personality and independence. These shoes are the ones that SHE chose to wear, and put on by herself each day this summer and early fall. They are the most worn out of all the shoes she's ever had. They were well loved (by both of us!) and therefore seem to hold special meaning to me as we tread deeper into toddlerhood.

So cute - I'm with ya, there is something about little shoes that just makes me smile. I can't help it! :) And that "little" stage feels like it passes so quickly... the next stage is amazing, too, but there's that itty bitty cuteness factor that changes into something new. Hope you guys are having a great Fall! Hugs to your sweet fam!! ~Katie

Aww well said mommy! I buy more shoes for my little girl than myself too!

We are in the same boat! Isn't it funny how their little shoes provide so many memories?!

ps. I think I'll use your "shoe game" the next time we have to transition! :)
