These Boots Are Made For Walking

Before Sadie was born Grumpa bought her a pair of beautiful pink cowboy boots.  He asked the lady in the store what size she would probably be wearing when she was first walking around and she picked out a pair of size sixes.  

Fast forward to now.  I was about to walk down the stairs today and I saw the yellow box that held the boots in them.  A while ago Nani held them against the bottoms of her feet to make sure that she wasn't growing out of them and she still had a ways to go.  I wanted to make sure though.  

I brought the box downstairs and took the boots out of the box.  They looked giant next to Sadie.  I held them up to her feet.  

I think that it is fair to say that Sadie has proportions similar to a german shepherd puppy.  (A quick note: While I'm sitting next to Sadie typing my blog she just pushed herself up and crawled all the way across the living room.  And it was a real crawl, not an on her tummy military style crawl.  It was all in a quest for a container from Target that has caramel popcorn in it.  She can't open it, but she holds it over her head and opens her mouth and shakes it.) 

Anyways, getting back to the topic of this blog, Sadie has pretty big feet and pretty big hands when compared with her body.  While she has started to grow in to them, she's definitely still a ways off.  

To make a long story short (I know, I know.  Too late.) the beautiful pink cowboy boots that Grumpa and Nani bought for her before she was born, fit perfectly today.  On her feet anyways.  Once I wrangled her in to them they came up to a spot just below her knees.  

I put her down on the floor, cute as a button in her overalls and boots and held her hands as she tried to convince me that there was no way that she could even stand with those things on her feet.  Once she realized that they weren't going to come off she seemed dazzled by their beauty and spent another good portion of the time she spent wearing them, staring at them.  It was a little bit difficult to get a picture of her in her boots looking up at the camera.  

I've said it once and I'll say it again:  I can't believe how fast she's growing!
