a friend of mine generously gave me several pairs of shoes for indi. her daughter is almost three so they don't fit her anymore.
one of the pairs [not pictured] is called "squeaky shoes". as one might expect given the name, they squeak when the child walks. indi's a bit of a diva and loves trying on clothes, dressing herself in various cyndi lauper-like combinations, putting on my shoes, etc. she fell IN LOVE with the squeaky shoes upon first step. she wore them TO BED the first night and didn't take them off during the night. she would scream anytime we tried to take them off! she kept running around in them to hear them squeak. it's so cute. [although the other patrons at our local grocery may not agree as they heard her squeaking down the aisles.] this morning, even with a 102 degree fever, she requested her squeaky shoes upon waking. she said, "mama, mama, squeaky shoes! squeaky shoes! LOVE squeaky shoes!" here's a pic of my sweet, sick baby in her pjs, mismatched socks, and squeaky shoes.
