Smaller by See Kai Run Review and Giveaway!

Although I haven't been talking about NewBaby much, she's still around. She's 7 months old now-preemie adjusted age of 4 months old- and *SO* stinking cute! She's cooing and gooing, and laughing and squealing.. she's turning into such a fun little baby. She learned to army crawl, and she's rolling like a ball. She had a taste of bananas in her cereal the other day, and she LOVED IT! She loves trying to sit up, and she's drooling like crazy.

My mother's side of the family is Hispanic, and our tradition is that the first person that feels a tooth is in charge of the baby's first pair of shoes. For NewBaby, her feet are so super teeny (and narrow!) that even though I felt the bumps so super close to the gums, the gorgeous Astrid sandals we got from Smaller by See Kai Run were still way to big for her! The good news is I get to hold onto them for a little while longer until she grows into them.

We were blessed with the opportunity to review the See Kai Run in February, so I was elated to have the opportunity to review the Smaller line this time around.

I must admit, this time around, I think I was even more impressed than I was when I got Abbie's pink "shooce". These dainty little white slippers are detailed with heart and dot cut outs across the tops of the front two straps. The back strap fastens with a sturdy velcro closure, allowing plenty of grow room without sacrificing comfort for your childs little toes! The "butter-soft" sheepskin leather they are made of is the softest leather ever! The quality in the workmanship can be seen in every pair of See Kai Run and Smaller shoes.

See Kai Run has definitely become a favorite in our house, and any time I hear someone talk about needing new shoes for their peanut, I send them to See Kai Run! Anytime we're out, our See Kai Run shoes are admired by passer-bys. I promise, as soon as I can get NewBaby's foot to fit into these sandals, (without them looking insanely huge!) I will be sure to post a picture!

My favorites are the Jake shoes from the Smaller line and See Kai Run was inspired by a mom who wanted shoes for her child to play and wear for the outdoors.
