Anna Riley really never wore shoes. It is really hard to find shoes that will fit newborns and by the time she could wear shoes, it was summer so why bother? I am trying to get her used to shoes since she will have to wear them very soon, so I have been putting them on her everyday and she seems to really like them. She plays with them and stares and them a lot! It is so cute. A few people told me they had problems with their child wearing shoes when they had to because they never did as babies but it doesnt seem that it bothers her yet!
