My first shoes

And with first steps it has to be done…my first shoes.

On the Saturday after Phoebe started walking we took her to Maidstone to the Golden Boot to get her feet measured and her first proper pair of shoes. She was a size 4G!

Now she has started taking those first steps, even though it’s early days, I want to encourage her to wear shoes and walk as much as possible. She doesn’t normally sit still for 5 minutes even so I think she might be quite an active child and as we live so close to the beach I’m hoping she’ll be quite ‘outdoorsy’

and then away she went… We tried on a couple of different pairs of shoes but we went with these cream and spotty canvas ones! (CREAM, what was I thinking!) Oh well I’ve been told she’ll grow out of them within a couple of months so we’ll then be onto another pair!

I can walk!

Phoebe took her first proper steps on Friday 17 February and although it felt a long time coming it made me feel super duper proud of her!

Because she was born six weeks early we’ve always noticed she was a tad behind physically on a lot of things. She sat up a lot later than other babies and seemed to crawl quite late and walking has been the same but we’ve got there in the end. And all babies are different so she might always have been destined to walk at this time.

Anyway in the morning on the Friday she took 4 steps – the most she’d done to date and then by lunch she went up to six and then in the afternoon this happened!

Made my heart burst!

My first haircut

Phoebe’s hair has really started to get in her face and although it’s not that long it did need a bit of a trim at the front so I took her to get her first haircut.

We went to a little salon just round the corner from our house and they were really lovely and good with her. She sat on my lap while she was having it cut and i let her play with my phone and the lady gave her the water squirter to play with. Then ta-dah a few seconds later it was done. And the brucie bonus was they only charged me 50p. Wish my haircuts cost that much.

She does look a lot smarter though and it’s out of her eyes which is the main thing.

And because she was so good they gave her a biscuit at the end.
