Give the boy new kicks and he conquers the world

We finally got Nathan some tennis shoes that fit. He has been sporting Crocs all summer because they were just easier. But as summer is coming to an end we needed to upgrade Nathan's footwear. So we got him some adorable Sesame Street New Balances. I'm usually not the type to "theme" my children's clothes. I like for them to look cute without looking like advertisement for the hottest cartoon or what have you. That's just me, so don't take it personal. But these shoes were just too cute and didn't scream "Big Bird". So we got them. And Nathan seems to like them too.

So today I took the kids to the post office and then to the park. I put tennis shoes on all the kids so no one felt left out. Once we got to the playground I set the small herd loose. I was talking to one of the kids and looked up to find Nathan.. climbing.. WAY too high for my liking. He was climbing on something Jon Kent and Zoey didn't conquer until they were at least 2. The boy is 16 months old and thinks he's 4. Seriously, if he could talk he could pass for a small 4 year old with the way he thinks he can do things. Gives me a couple heart attacks a day.

I am soooo going to love watching his children do the same to him.

Agreed about the 'theme' clothes. Not into them either. :)

And eeekk! I can see why that would give you heart palpitations. But you know, from the videos you've shown of Nathan, he seems very sure on his feet and quite coordinated for his age.

I am soooo not into the theme clothes. Maybe once in awhile if it's something the kids love but that's it.

Oh my gosh, did he climb up there by himself?!

Stephanie.. yes he got there all by himself. Scared the crap out of me!

I also do not buy to many themed clothes. Emily, I would have had a heart attack with how high he climbed.
