New Shoes

Lucas got new shoes. Big boy real tennis shoes- with velcro.

Oh my. Be still my heart. Be still.

I can’t get enough of him. Sometimes I’m like, hey kid. Sit still so I can look at you. Just stay there, right like that and let me soak you in. Okay, actually I’m usually thinking sit still! quite often these days.

I wish I could explain to you what happened when we put his shoes on- I so so wish I would have got it on video. It could have won an award or something. He LOVES his new shoes. I put them on him and at first he was confused, taking big moon like steps. These were his first “real” shoes. They’re much heavier and bulkier than his other ones before. He was confused at first and then he thought he was 15 years old and had just won his soccer tournament. Seriously should have gone it on video. Ya’ll would have died.

If I can get him to keep his hat on- oh, those are the days. Hat + shoes = Simply. A.Maz.Ing.

And if I can get him to keep his sunglasses on with his hat and his shoes. Well then heck. You might as well call it a day for me. I don’t need anything else in this world.

Amen. Amen. Amen.
