"The first step, my son, which one makes in the world, is the one on which depends the rest of our days."

Today we took Opeie to Clarks to get his First pair of shoes. His walking is getting a lot better and he is so much more confident on his feet. I'm not sure if it was for my first pair of shoes but i definitely remember my mom taking me there when i was little for some shoes. The measuring device always seemed really exciting but i guess Opeie is to young to understand at the moment.

The great thing about going to Clarks is the fact that you get your photo taken for your first pair and its a great little reminder for him and something that i can put in the box of things to give him when he's older. It'll be in there with the diary that me and Mrs M write for him, his shriveled up umbilical cord (who wouldn't want to be handed that!!) and items of clothing that we want to keep etc.

Ok so i may have told a little porky.... this is actually Opeie's 2nd 1st pair of shoes from Clarks. Im quite sure theres many parents out there that have done it. We were a touch over enthusiastic buying the last pair, he wasn't even up on his feet so he didn't get any wear out of them but at least we still got our 'first shoes' photo.

He's not that far off size wise from wearing his Spider-man Reebok trainers i brought him a while ago and then he will have his Captain America Reebok trainers to look forward to (which was one of the first posts i ever wrote).  My boy is going to have the coolest footwear, I'm a bit of a shoe fiend myself. I'm quite sure there will be many more 'first' shoes from Clarks it would be rude not to take advantage of the photo opportunity after all.
