Admiring her new kicks
Nieve loves shoes. Sparkly slippers, rubber boots, nylon sandals, leather moccasins, plastic flip-flops, or fur-lined slippers; Nieve loves them all.
It's safe to say that shoes make Nieve happy!
The other night, after getting ready for bed, Nieve decided to put on Ronan's shoes. She quietly went to the shoe rack, found the ones she was interested in, put each shoe on the correct foot, and proceeded to play in Ronan's shoes.
"Nice. Lots of extra room in the toebox"
We have never encouraged Nieve to like shoes let alone learn to put them on by herself - Nieve has an intrinsic interest in footwear that we find a bit baffling but at the moment very endearing. For example, one day at preschool 'Suggie' Nieve's plush animal was lost - the teachers found a glittery shoe that served well as a comfort object that she cuddled to sleep.
