Hendrick got his first pair of shoes last weekend! Since he is now swimming around from room to room he finds it frustrating to be in socks because he doesn't get enough traction. Unfortunately we are not able to keep our apartment at a toasty, sock free, seventy-five degrees like the Nido, so we must settle for leather shoes that provide a little traction. As you can see by the photo as soon as they were on H's feet, he started sucking on them. There is nothing that does not end up in his mouth right now! With shoes on, H is happily swimming around our home regularly pushing off with his feet. He looks like he is doing a cross between the breaststroke and the butterfly. I can't wait to see what he will be like when he is crawling!
