They're cute little shoe/socks that fit right over her SMOs. They have lots of traction on the bottom so she doesn't slip. They were designed for toddlers between 12-24 months who are learning to walk (not designed for SMO wearers but they work nicely). They fit shoe sizes Toddler 4-8 (we have the size 4s). They come in a million different cute patterns and the best part is that I found them at Target for $12.99! They obviously don't offer as much support as a pair of sneakers, but the support is mostly the job of the SMO anyways and we are only using these cool skidders when we are home. We still put her sneakers on when we leave and still wear them sometimes in the house.
So any other SMO mommas....these rock! I looked high and low for something like this and finally found it! She can walk just as easily in these as she can in her shoes. And she can be a little more comfortable and not have to wear sneakers 24/7.
And now for some super cute pictures just for fun!
Zoya is watching Elmo and he just came on the screen for the first time! Oh the excitement!
Daddy is telling Zoya he has a boo boo. She is touching his knee and mirroring the "in pain" face he was making.
This girl loves holding onto socks. Notice the drum in the background. This is now one of her favorite toys. It is filled (until she empties it) with loud musical instruments. Her favorite instruments are the egg shakers that she uses appropriately but also likes to throw to the dog who chases them wildly around the house trying to eat them. Next favorite is the drum sticks which she also uses appropriately as well as inappropriately (hitting the dog with them). She loves the band in a box...me, notsomuch hehe....thanks Uncle Bub! She would empty and refill this drum a hundred times a day if we let her! I have started putting it up high and she has to ask for it. If its anywhere in her sight she asks for it and if I say no she whines hehe.
Today we had a picnic for our sailing program. Here is Zoya's bud Seth (who as some of you know was one of our footprints leading us to adopt Zoya). In this picture Seth is laughing and Zoya is signing "more" because Seth just ran me over with the stroller and you can see they both thought it was pretty funny and Zoya wanted him to do it again!
Seth looks so proud to be the big kid taking Zoya for a walk!
Off to sit around and eat bon bons now. Riiiiight, maybe one day?
