Our Phoebe has quite the fondness for shoes these days. Although she is a little girl of few words, she very clearly utters the word "shoes" frequently. She loves shoes of all kinds, really; Mommy shoes, Daddy shoes, Phoebe shoes, big shoes, small shoes... they're all fair game for her.

One of Phoebe's favorite pairs of shoes is her pair of faux crocs, that Mops picked up at a CVS a few weeks ago. She bought the smallest size they had, which was about two sizes two big for our Little Bitty. No matter. Phoebe still loves them, and wears them (clumsily) just about any time she can.

She was wearing them yesterday when it was time to get ready for the bath. Daddy stripped her down, but let her run around naked -- except for the "crocs" -- before she got in the tub. (Those pictures are reserved for the grandparents.) The shoes never made it off her feet.

The entire bath was conducted with shoes on. And she was delighted.

The shoes were left somewhere on the floor at bedtime last night. The very first thing Phoebe wanted this morning? Her pink shoes. Which was just the beginning of her shoe obsessed day.

Throughout the course of the day, Phoebe asked to change her shoes six times. As in, she wore just about every shoe she owns -- including a few pairs that were too small for her. It brought me great delight to change her shoes for her. What a girly girl!

Sweet! We'll have to get a picture of the littles wearing their matching suits and shoes! Too cute! I definitely see that picture in some sort of wedding slideshow.
