I don't know why but first wellies are so significant to me. First shoes aren't so important but first wellies actually moves me to tears. I think it something to do with my baby officially being a toddler able and wanting to splash around in muddy puddles.
This is the first day Beaux wore his little Hunters wellies (£4 a steal from eBay) and he loves them so much! When we tried them on at home he immediately threw his rice cake on to the floor and stomped them into the rug with so much enthusiasm and joy I couldn't be annoyed! (lie! I was a little!) He didn't want to take them off so I thought it would be lovely to take him for a little walk to our local park.
Beaux knew exactly what to do when he met his first puddle, he was a puddle splashing machine!! By the time he was finished with that puddle it was a puddle no more!! He would literally jump in it until there was no more water left and continue on to hunt out his next puddle victim!
It was so lovely to watch, he did take a stumble and fell plonk on his bum (which I did take a photo of after all the damage was already done) and he wasn't in the least bit bothered. We weren't far from home so we headed back via more puddles to a lovely warm bubble bath. I can safely say Beaux is a huge fan of his first pair of little Hunter wellies.
