Newborn Shoes

Our friends Jordanna and Tyson had a baby boy almost 2 weeks ago, and I have been making him a few little things. I forgot to take a pic of the socks I made and gave away promptly, but how could I forget to take a pic of the Paramecium shoes? They are both scientists, and while I don't have any idea how they feel about the paramecium, it is the one thing I always think of when I think of biology.

My biology teacher in high school surprised us one day by arriving dressed as a paramecium and then dancing on the top of an upturned trashcan while singing a little paramecium song.

I think he would be proud.
As an aside, I cannot believe how freaking small these are! Did I really make these same shoes for Zora, once a long time ago? Yes - I did!

Oh, baby toes are so wonderful...and freaking small. Don't you remember when they're that little, and you can hardly get anything to fit right becauase they're SOOO small? Incredible...and a lovely story about biology. I don't recall any of my science teachers be quite that fun!
