Toddler Toes

I love my daughter’s feet.

Her little toes are the busiest, CUTEST little toes I’ve ever seen. When I was pregnant with her, during a 3D ultrasound fairly late into my pregnancy, the doctors said her feet were going to be pretty big when she was born and they were. She came into the world with feet that looked quite large compared to her little body. I still laugh looking back at her newborn photos. It’s extra funny because Travis and I have average size feet so we’re not sure where those came from. :)

Abigail is now 16 months old. She has grown into her feet and they are now actually tiny for her age. We have trouble finding good shoes for her because her feet are smaller than the toddler sizes. It doesn’t matter to Abigail though because she always prefers to be barefoot (just like her mamma).

I love my daughter’s feet. They represent the core of who she is. Carefree, energetic, busy, exploratory, free. 

These toddler toes take her on adventures to find sticks and rocks.


These toddler toes keep her in place while she makes cheesy smiles and holds up her “guns” when mommy or daddy says “Show me your muscles!!



These toddler toes allow her to run away from mommy’s camera as much as possible and include a mischievous grin while doing it.

These toddler toes allow her to feel the grass under her feet while she twirls and explores the world around her.

I love my daughter’s feet.

I love her toddler toes and holding every one, telling her all about her “piggies” which one went to the market, which one stayed home, which one had roast beef, which one had none and which one cried “wee wee wee” all the way home.

I love holding her upside down by those feet, listening to the most beautiful sound in the world…her giggle.

I love when those little feet are used to climb on top of me to play, snuggle or listen to a book.

I absolutely love the following quote and will always strive to remind my daughter of this. I will remind her that many times her feet may carry her away from me, daddy or even God, but that they will always bring her home because they will always know the way.

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

Khalil Gibran
