The red shoes.

So here comes the promised blog post about shoes :) We had an hour before the session last Saturday to buy Lucy new shoes, so we went to a shoe shop and tried to choose some shoes for Lucy. I mean Alex and I. We found some nice and practical shoes that we likes, the sales assistant kept going back anf forth bringing new shoes, kept putting them on Lucy. Lucy kept letting her do it and them would take them off and hold on to her old pair saying "Lucy", meaning, "Thanks, but no, thanks, I have shoes already". The only problem being that they were becoming too small and she needed the next size. We would have gotten the exact same shoes for her just to keep her happy, but the shop didn't have them in stock. We didn't want to buy her shoes she wouldn't want to wear. And most of the time she is such an angel  (as much as a 2 year old can be one :)) that if she puts up a fuss we try to listen. So, Alex held her up so she can see all the shoes they have and told her: "Pick any shoes you want and we will buy them for you". And she picked these:

The significance of what had happened is that it was the first time when she chose shoes herself. And frankly, we were not ready to have it at 2 years and 2 months. So it starts a new era for us.
It's not something that we would have chosen, but at least they are not pink :) So, the shoes are red, extremely shiny, and have cats on the soles:

And no doubt you will see them a lot on this blog, becase really, they are not just some brown shoes you can ignore :)
And of course the proud owner of the shiny shoes:

Thanks, Helen, I think she chose very cute shoes! It breaks my heart to them them being scratched as she climbs and runs and does the rest of things a 2 year old enjoys :)
