We celebrated Lanna’s first birthday this weekend with a pool party. I had joked that she would be getting a pile of paper to eat because after all, that is what she likes! But on our trip we found an awesome rubber chicken and thought it would be really funny to give the baby a rubber chicken and then we thought it would be even funnier to make her a luchadore outfit in the vein of Nacho Libre. And of course because her mama and grandma refuse to buy her shoes and I get grossed out by her walking around stores barefoot I made her some snazzy kicks.
I made an extra pair of each the little deer and the polka dot shoes. I made the sole out of a good vinyl so they shouldn’t be slippery but they are still soft soled for the new walkers (isn’t that what they recommend these days?) Anyways they are Lanna size so about a year old (I’m thinking something like 9 to 18 months). Her foot is 4.5 inches long and 3 inches over the top at the fattest (and they are fat) part if that helps any
