Baby's got a new pair of shoes

"Shoes," you say? Yep. Jacky's got a new pair of shoes. We found a great sale on our all-time favorite shoes this week and mama stocked up! :)

Robeez (pronounced "Robbie's" for the founder's son) are the best thing since, well, since Robeez! You might see knock-offs everywhere from Gymboree to Gap to Wal-Mart, but nothing is quite like that first real pair of soft soles by the originator in fine footwear for peanuts!

My third baby was the first of my kids to sport these stylin' kicks, and she wore them everywhere. Our pediatrician gave them rave reviews, attesting to their contribution to leg and foot muscle development. Sure, they look like slippers, but they're the closest thing to bare feet, which is the best thing for babes. It protects them from carpet burn when they're little and crawling, and helps them to curl under their toes and manage balance as they become mobile.

"But, San," - you say - "um - Jack is only 8 weeks old!" Yep - right you are! But, you know what? They work SO great at keeping on the socks that I had to get him a pair now. (Plus, the aforementioned sale!!!! They're much more expensive at my Stride Rite store, and I love a bargain!) So, this fall be on the lookout for these stylin' shoes - coming to a baby's foot near you (or on this blog!) :)

Jacky-poo's got a new pair of shoes! Jacky-poo's got a new pair of shoes! (Sung to the tune of 'Betty Lou's Got a New Pair of Shoes'!) .... Sorry. You probably don't know that one. lol
They look like slippers to me, but... if you say so! I think they're cute. So let me know when this kid is walking if I don't see you guys soon!
