It’s a bit surreal, but in few weeks, another little one is joining our crew. (Boy or girl? What do you think? Yes, we know! And no, we aren’t telling! Hehe.)
Thanks to the whirlwind adoption of our amazing little Miss Eliza, we’ll essentially have a sweet, squishy set of twins. As we prepare for two babies, our house is full of gauzy swaddle blankets, boxes of diapers, and — my favorite — itty bitty shoes.
I’ve been pining over some Freshly Picked moccasins after watching them on Shark Tank and watching their mama-ran business explode. They’re all-leather, handmade baby moccs that are pretty much the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
They’ve rocketed to cult-status among millennial moms, and I have to say: These teeny shoes are worth the hype.
Yes, so many shoes are swoon-worthy when they’re in tiny sizes, but rarely do they stay on those squirmy, wiggly toes.
Eliza has been wearing hers for a few weeks now, and thanks to the stretchy elastic inside, they actually stay on her feet. (This is so rare for us, especially because her toes are a little differently spaced because of her extra chromosome.)
I was so thrilled to parter with Freshly Picked for a review (And giveaway! You’re going to want to keep reading, friends!), because I really wanted to know if the little leather moccasins were worth the higher-end price point. (You can snag them online or at Nordstrom.) The honest verdict: They are.
Freshly Picked moccs would make a wonderful, thoughtful baby shower gift to go in on with one or two other people.
They’re really heirloom quality (and made in the USA!), and they’re made to take the shape to your little one’s feet. (I’ve heard that they’re great for crawlers and new walkers, but I haven’t been able to test that yet!) Eliza has teeny feet, so she is still in the newborn (size 0) size.
I like that so many color options are gender neutral, which means the soft-soled shoes could be passed on from child to child.
Freshly Picked was so sweet to send newborn moccasins in Petite Blush, Petite Sky, and Petite Birch. I’m having a hard time picking a favorite color. No matter baby #4’s gender, we’ve now got adorable moccs on lock.
What do you think? Will it be an even split of boys + girls? Or will Eliza and I be outnumbered? Only time will tell. (Though, I won’t lie — I wouldn’t hate it if baby decided to make his/her arrival sooner rather than later!)
I’m so thrilled to join Freshly Picked in a giveaway of one pair of soft-soled baby moccasins. Lucky you, you’ll get to pick the size + color for your little one. I’ll randomly pick a winner on March 28. Good luck!
