So as you know, I decided that Friday's on the blog would be dedicated to my pregnancy and my status of "Mum".
I know it's not something everyone wants to read about but it is something that I really wanted to do - so I'm doing it - after all, being pregnant and having two beautiful children is huge and I really wanted to share bits and pieces of what is going on in my life amongst these pages.
So here we go
~ Baby Baker Friday ~
Having little ones, there's never a day, an hour, a minute, even a second that passes by when you aren't worrying about something.
~ Are they eating enough?
~Are they eating too much?
~ Are they OK at school?
~ Are they making friends?
Anything and everything goes through your mind.
Even right down to thinking about their tiny little toes and worrying if they are getting all squished up inside of their shoes.
(Trust me, this is a huge worry for me - we don't want Willow's cute baby toes turning out "just like Daddy's"...eek...hehe!)
Seriously it is worry after worry a lot of the time, but that's what we are there to do us parents, we are the ones to pick apart each and every "problem", doing our very best to get rid of it with our little lovelies being none the wiser.
And this is why, at almost 11 months old, Willow doesn't really "do" shoes yet.
...that and the fact that I love seeing her tiny toes and fat, chubby feet as much as I possibly can of course.
But I know this whole baby barefoot thing isn't going to last especially with one of her next milestones to conquer being walking.

...a very lovely black crocheted piece of footwear, all detailed with lovely silver glitter at that...
...AND from TOMS too no less.
They are absolutely adorable - the oooh's & ahhh's when I opened the teeny box were at a crazy level let me tell you.
They are just so tiny.
It did take a few attempts to actually get them onto Willow's feet I must say but she had no idea what I was doing at first and once they were on she really seemed to love them...
There were no faces pulled or cries and struggles to pull them off which shows me that they felt comfortable to her - which is great - and as they have a velcro fastening it meant they were very easy to slip on and off - brilliant for me.
We really do love theses shoes and I feel they may have now started a little shoe collecting hobby within us...
But I suppose they aren't a bad way to start a collection off now are they
