My kids have big feet.
Not to be confused with wide. They are thick feet. From sole to top. Thick, man. Consequently, we have trouble with shoes in the early years.
(yes, we all do have bruises on our legs; why do you ask? We like to give our "hello"'s with a nice, hard, kick to the shins.)
And consequently, you will generally see my lil uns with nekkid little tootsies.
Anywho, my lovely sister in law, Rachel, made Kenna some bodacious lil shoes, and I.am.in.love.
Look at these awesome things- they are soft, comfy, cozy--
they have elastic in them, and they are simply purrrrrfect for these thick feet of ours. Rachel just uses the scraps she has left over from quilts and the like. She says they're really easy cheesy.
Apparently they're pretty darned tasty, too.
(and apparently my babe needs her neck cleaned, too)
Try 'em out for your babe or your next baby gift if you're not sewing challenged. Imagine all the matchy smatchy possibilities: baby legs. . . custom onesies. . .

Um, so, I'm thinking I need some of these in every color of the rainbow.
