Grippy Socks

Eli is on the move! That means nothing in our house is safe, including him! To help keep him a little safer I made him some grippy socks. Call me crazy, but I love socks from the hospital. When I was 12 I had my appendix out. My first question when they told me I could go home was if I could keep the socks!

To make these super simple socks I whipped out some puff paint, do you remember that. I remember decorating t-shirts with puff paint way back in the day. I got the idea to do it on the socks from my Mom. She put my initial on the bottom of a bunch of new socks that I got when I was younger. That helped keep track of who's were who's and it made matting the socks a breeze.

On Eli's socks I tried to be a little more creative than just his initial. I have to admit I had ton's of fun. Hopefully this help at least a little with the slipping and sliding, but even if it doesn't, it is super cute to see the things on the bottom of his feet while he crawls around.
