Big Feet

As Barron's Mother I feel required to think everything on him is just precious and that is almost entirely true.  Except his feet!  I joke with Bryan that they look like Hobbit feet (from "Lord of the Rings").  Barron's feet are really big and fat.  They are not so much wide as they are high.  Because of this we have had a hard time finding shoes.  He did not wear shoes at all until he turned one.  I decided since he was walking that I had to find something.
Since he was one, he has lived in his Salt Water Sandals.  They did not cover the top of his feet so they worked.  (Barron was nice enough to model all of his shoes for this blog)

His only other option was Crocs.  I was told they were perfect for fat feet.  They may be perfect for most fat feet, but not Barron's.  Every time he wore them he had deep imprints on the top of his feet.  We had to buy such a big size he would trip easily.

So now that fall has officially arrived I had to find him something that would work for cooler temps.  Last weekend we went up to Oxford for the Ole Miss game.  We flew through Memphis and went to Jackson's Shoes, the same store my Mother bought our shoes when we were young.  They had a big selection and showed us which ones wouldn't hurt his arch.  We found two pair (yay).
First are the Extra Wide New Balance...

Barron got a little preoccupied while modeling and started dancing with Bryan.
Hopefully he will get his Mother's moves!
And then a more dressy pair...
I'm just thankful his feet will be covered this winter.  Hopefully his sweet, precious feet will thin out as he does!
