Instead, she is going to tell Carter what to do.
It’s also Part II of my Nordstrom’s kid shoes post.
If you missed Part I, click HERE for Shopping with Sheaffer and Carter.
So today you’re going to get to see a whole lot of Carter.
*Lots of bright colors

I couldn’t find the source for the little fella on the side, but I loved the picture, and I thought I would try to recreate our own version of the photo with my little fella.
Here we go.
Now it’s my little man’s turn to WORK IT.
Are you dying?
Because I’m dying.
Pinterest Freaking Told Him To.
And then HE showed Pinterest who was boss.
Actually, Pinterest Told Me To, and then I told him to.
LOOK AT MY KID WORK THE CAMERA!
Nordstrom, call me! Let’s get this kid in some print ads! 😉
Have your people call my people.
(To be clear, I don’t have people. So by “my people”, I mean “me.) 🙂
I want to eat him with a spoon.
I know he’s my kid.
So I know I’m completely and totally biased.
When I tell you he has the sweetest little heart in the whole entire world, I’m not kidding.
His favorite thing in the world to do is snuggle with me or his dad.
He tells us he loves us at least 10 times a day (and that’s a super conservative estimate), and he hands out unsolicited hugs and kisses like it’s his job.
And except for about the first 5 minutes he’s up every morning, he’s happy. Like he’s ALWAYS happy. And oh my goodness is he funny. He keeps us laughing all the time.
I want to freeze him.
I never want to forget his little voice.
Or the sweet little things he says (like the fact that he says “lasterday” instead of “yesterday”).
I mean, that’s kind of genius isn’t it?
And I want him to always fit into my lap just the way he does right now.
Okay, enough of my tribute to Carter, because believe me I could go on AND ON and on. 😉
Let’s get to his SUPER CUTE outfit and his SUPER CUTE shoes.
Everything is from Nordstrom.
Because you know what they say about the apple?
Well, they were right. It doesn’t fall far.
Skull shirt HERE
Comes in sizes 1 1/2 – 8 years.
I totally dig the skull, but if you don’t, click HERE to see a similar raglan shirt with a star.
If you do dig the skulls, click HERE for other Mini Boden skull pieces.
Plaid shirt HERE
LOVE the cuffs and the cut of it…and the colors are awesome. It would be super cute buttoned up with jeans or a pair of khakis. But it’s also cute worn unbuttoned as an extra layer.
Shorts, similar HERE
These particular shoes only come in baby and toddler sizes, but click HERE for all kid’s converse.
Here’s a close up of the shoes. Love.
Here are some of my favorites.
I love the Mini Boden line for both boys and girls.
Click HERE for all girl’s outfit choices.
If you’ve never checked Mini Boden out, you have to now. The cuteness level is OFF THE CHARTS, from appliqued tees to embroidered skirts, to rompers, to dresses. All of it is crazy cute.
Click HERE for all boy’s Mini Boden choices.
You can’t get cuter than their graphic tees and knit shorts.
And here are some more of my favorite kid’s shoes for both boys and girls.
For boys, scroll through and click on what you are interested in!
And now it’s the girl’s turn!
Just scroll and click!
And I knew I had to mention THESE shoes again.
I’ve received 4 different e-mails on them since my first post, all with readers singing my praises for talking about these shoes.
3 e-mails were from readers who bought them after I highlighted them and all loved them.
However, the e-mail that caught my attention was from a reader who has 3 kids who all already had them!
I’ve been reading your blog for almost a year now. I have 5 of your MUST HAVES and countless other items that you have recommended. Well, I felt so smart after reading your post today because I have 3 kids (6 year old girl, 4 year old girl, 2 year old boy) and they all have a pair of the Natives.
I feel like I’m a bit of a must have expert, and I want to go ahead and call these a MUST HAVE for kiddos. The easy on easy off is what makes them a must have in my book. With three kids, the fact that they can all get these on on their own makes them a must have in my house for sure.
They wear them to school, to the pool, to the beach, to the park, to play in the sand, and even to church!
You’ve done it again! Ha!
Click HERE for Natives.
I also saw this review online that I thought was a great one.
is the second summer we have ordered these slip-on sneakers. The
comfort and cool sneaker style make them a winner for fast on and off
summer shoes! No laces or Velcro is a plus for little feet and the
ventilation holes keep them cool and not sweaty. We love that they don’t
fall off and are easy clean up. We ordered both the navy and black to
go with everything.
Thanks again to Nordstrom for sponsoring the kid’s shoe portion of this post!
It was such fun working with Carter on this, and I have to say, today’s post is one of my
Top 5 Favorite posts to date!
And just because, let’s just take one more look at his precious little face.
Let us not forget that Mother’s Day is right around the corner.
