New Shoes!

I am happy to announce that after wearing the same pair of tennis shoes for at least 18 months, Alan finally has a need for a new pair.

The fact that his feet have fit into those shoes for so long has been a  kind of growth meter for us. (That, and wearing the same jeans and pajamas for two winters, but who's counting, right?  I don't know.... you'd think he had been 'sick' or something.)

So, if Alan's feet have grown enough to need new shoes, that must mean.... He's Growing!!  :)

And all that good news aside, I think these are the
cutest little boy shoes I have seen in a long time!  
Alan was quite taken with them as well.  He wasn't with us for the shopping, and when presented with his new shoes he wanted to put them on right then, and even wanted to keep them on for his nap.  

That boys loves his new shoes!
(And we couldn't be happier for him.)  :)

Yaaaay! He's growing. Pretty soon, and you won't be able to keep him in clothes/shoes. And what a wonderful thing that will be! (Rachel went from a 7 slim in August to a 10 slim at Christmas!!!!)

Hooray for new shoes! Isn't it remarkable the ordinary things that have become milestones on this journey?

Very cute!! Micah has been slow growing, too! I am actually pulling out last summer's clothes to see if we outgrew any of them. I must say that the slow growth does tend to save money in the clothing department! :)
