Life is about to get a little crazier....

.... and you thought that wasn't possible, ha!

G-man took his first steps last night! On the 1 year anniversary of his due date, I might add... ;) I'm so thankful to have gotten to witness them, especially as a working momma. I was in NYC for business the week Big Sis took her first steps. She was only 9 months old, so we weren't expecting it and I was super sad....

But it was the most amazing thing! 3 precious little steps! And I got so excited and gushed over him for so long that it wouldn't have surprised me if he did anything to avoid getting that kind of reaction. ever. again. But he took a couple more tonight! (And all this with me encouraging him for months NOT to walk! Just kidding. Kinda.)
So, now.... I need advice! This boy needs shoes! Big Sis wore shoes from birth... I worked in the shoe industry prior to moving to TX and I had friends near and far buying her the cutest, girliest shoes. G-man has worn shoes... maybe twice. I'm guessing the flexi-sole kinda thing is what I'm looking for.... and style is big for G-man (I mean, you saw his rocker pics, yes?) But here's the thing... don't forget the damn recession! I'd rather not break the bank, ok? So... fill me in! Here are a few I found in my 2 seconds of spare time that I liked:

Oh, and before a bunch of you suggest crocs..... those are not allowed at the Semi-Homemade School (or Big Sis would be in them sometimes!) Oh, and most of you know of my love of Amazon and/or free shipping... :)
Thanks for your help and celebrating G-man's big milestone! Hmmmm.... wonder what size he is..... g'night!

Are the middle ones Robeez tredz? If so, I recently bought my son a pair on sale at the Stride Rite store at the Allen outlets. Hope that helps!

So exciting! Congratulations little man...this will definitely make life crazy at your house :) I love all your choices. I really like using shoes.com and endless.com Both have free shipping and free return shipping so it's so easy if they don't fit or you don't like them.

We did Pedipeds once WC started walking and I loved them!

The Kenneth Cole's for sure! Looks they have them in brown too... but I am a fan of th black for sure. So cute! Little boy shoes have come a long long way, I find myself gushing over them whenever we're looking at the kids shoe department. I think little girl tennies are ugly...especially, well you know, the character ones. :-)
