Something that Jason told me once, and then I just put it in the back of my mind and never thought about it again is that the Bills have wide feet that are hard to buy shoes for. I started looking for shoes for Emery ever since he was a little baby. I always went into the stores and bought these cute shoes that would definately be able to fit him, then I would come home and put them on and NO they wouldn't go on. Then I remembered this little tidbit that Jason told me. So, I decided that I should go to Stride Rite to get his feet measured, and sure enough the curse has been pasted on. My boy has WIDE feet. So, yesterday, we bought Emerson his first pair of shoes that fit him. They cost us $36...on sale (that is why we decided to buy them before he was walking). We bought them a little big so he can grow into them by time he is walking. I can't believe that we are going to have to spend that much pretty much every time he has to get a new pair of shoes. I hope that they slim up a little bit (like Jason's and not like his Grandpa Bills's).
They are super cute shoes (I think), but I don't think that Emerson likes shoes on because all he would do is kick his feet until they were off. We are just going to have to keep putting them on until he is used to them.
