Iain got his feet wet walking in puddles earlier in the month and I simply could not resist these.
Historically, Iain has not liked hard soled shoes AT ALL. Therefore, he has been wearing Robeez or Bobunz, heavily insulated children’s boots from MEC covered by Stonz slip-ons when we go outdoors (hmm, bit of baby wear advertising there…). Anyways, when we had a spring melt a couple of weeks ago (followed by winter), Iain had to visit every puddle he could find and, for the first time, his feet were a bit wet when we came inside. I thought these rubber boots were adorable and bought them big so that I could use wool socks inside them as it might be getting more Spring-like around here but it’s pretty cold still.
To my surprise and glee, Iain loves his boots! Here is a video of Iain wearing hard soled boots for the very first time.
Isn’t he pleased with himself? He is even saying ‘boots’! I love how he is sticking off his tummy and just strutting around!
And, the picture you’ve all been waiting for. The mommy-to-be at week 25 (last Thursday evening):
And with the proud big brother.
It’s interesting. I find that Iain looks like a very big boy when I take pictures of him by himself. However, when he is in a picture with either myself or DH, all of a sudden he looks so wee again. He is really growing up too fast.
