New shoes, new challenges

Benjamin practicing his charms on the local girl...
We have the Mitchell shoes now with the Dobbs bar. Actually, we have had the new shoes for a few weeks now...I just can't find the time to blog very often. :)

He has been doing fairly well with the new shoes. They have proven easier to put on, as well as easier to see if they are on correctly, as there are holes in the back of the shoes to view his heels. It seems that he doesn't mind the new shoes. We aren't having to adjust them as much, although with the window, my husband can see they come out a bit more often than we like. But, we are still thankful for the new design. Right now, we are using a little piece of sock folded in half to give a bit more padding over the middle buckle. His foot size is kind of in between the holes, so this has helped to keep it in nice and tight until we can let it out to the next larger hole.

He has now chosen to make evenings his 'special' time. That's a nice way of saying he gets fussy and wants us all to himself. :) At first we thought it was the shoes/brace, but I think it's more his age and temperament...hopefully for a short time!

Better go and relieve my husband, who is holding Benjamin while I type this. Blessings!
