Sophie’s Red Shoes


Sophie spent several days insisting on wearing her cherry red patent-leather shoes—without socks—from Gramma and Paw Paw.


This, of course, resulted in several days of mismatched outfits (but one exclamation of “Oh, I LOVE your shoes!” from another little girl at the grocery store).

As you can see in the last picture, Sophie also is getting more particular about having her picture taken. She often buries her head and says, “I can’t smile mama!”
