The Struggle of the Boy Mom


On Friday morning, I woke up to a dreary, windy day. The clouds were abundant, and the air was chilly and wet. And, just like that, fall had arrived.

I'm not going to lie: I've secretly been counting the days on the calendar until autumn's arrival. Last October, we spent so much time in the woods, among the changing leaves, and it was magical. But, it wasn't nature that was calling my name this time. Instead, it was the abundance of downright adorable little boy clothes that sat, waiting.


I know, I know, now you're rolling your eyes. But, hear me out, I'm a boy mom. And, while I love gooing and gaaing over the tiny little girls in their adorable pink dresses, and matching hairbands, I'm not so enthusiastic over the little boy collection. Sure, you've got the precious button ups that your son looks like he may strangle in, but for baby boys you're pretty much stuck with onesies, and maybe a cute romper.


But, this year, this year was different. This year, my boy is a toddler, and he's got a closet full of plaid, and button ups, and even little bowties.

Somewhere along the way, our clothing opportunities seemed to have opened up from "dressing a blob" to "dressing a little man."



Now that little A is walking running everywhere we go, shoes have become a necessity. We were able to get away with a sock-footed blob in the early days, but who knows what kind of disease his little feet could pick up from the ground.

So on the first cool day, I rushed to the closet to retrieve the cutest shoes ever! I've been hanging onto them since last winter, and was absolutely thrilled to see that they'd fit him this year.


These baby adidas are honestly the PERFECT addition to any fall/winter outfit, and we are going to wear them out this year, because I know they'll be far too small next autumn.



The fuzzy material goes all the way into the shoe and, from what I can feel with my hand, it feels like a pillow inside! My favorite aspect of these are the support they give to new walkers. Little A has been toddling around for about 4 months now, so his balance is definitely evening out. One thing I have noticed is that he walks on the side of his right foot. While he'll probably grow out of it, and it doesn't seem to be causing him any trouble, supporting his feet the right way has become pretty important to us.


These shoes keep his feet nice and flat on the floor, while also allowing him to maintain his balance. He's only worn these a couple of times, and is already walking like a pro in them.

What are your favorite baby boy styles?

Until next time,
Savannah
