Walk the line

Well folks, we have a full on walker! Ford took his first steps a few weeks ago but plateaued around 10-12 steps and after a weekend of trying keep up with his 2 year old cousin Embry, he is a walking machine. Prior to last weekend, he would only walk on carpet and take off from sitting in his Anywhere Chair or leaning against the couch. Well that has most definitely changed. It is the cutest thing to watch Ford toddle around the house and follow me in the kitchen. I hear that once they start walking, it's not long before they start running so I am trying to enjoy this calm walking while it lasts. 

I've put Ford in shoes ever since he was born. I remember being frustrated that his baby sandals weren't staying on his feet when we took him to a wedding at 3 weeks old. I have a thing for baby shoes. I was nervous because he had only been walking barefoot and wasn't sure how he'd react to shoes so this week I put on his first pair of hard bottom shoes. He was hilarious the first few seconds and looked like he was a dog wearing shoes.




Those ankles!

Ford's adorable shoes are Splendid Zayden, an LA based lifestyle brand who partnered with Stride Rite to offer kids happy, relaxed, and high quality crafted shoes. Inspired by Splendid’s signature rainbow of stripes and bright palettes, each style in the the Splendid for Stride Rite collection will be fun to wear every day and feel as good as the clothing they take their inspiration from. The focus of this new collaboration was comfort, style and flexibility and each style was designed to dress up or down. The collection consists of ten styles for baby girls 0 to big girl size 3 and boys ages 0-2, ranging in price from $25 to $68. Splendid for Stride Rite shoes are now available at  Striderite.com and will be available on Splendid.com and at select Splendid retail stores. They are adorable, comfortable, and durable...exactly what I am looking for in shoes for my rambunctious toddler!
