We cancelled our Christmas cruise because of Hannah's illness, but this didn't prevent her from wearing the cutest and most comfortable sandals she has. She wears them around the house as she practices her walking and they have helped her find her balance while staying fashionista chic.

See Kai Run is a line designed by a mom who has kept quality and the cool factor in mind. With a wide range of colours and styles, the flexible rubber soled shoes are great for beginning walkers like Hannah. We had the opportunity to try on the gorgeous Cameron Sky design, but there are so many to choose from. Got so many compliments for it and we wished we could have only been on a cruise ship to show them off. We'll have to get another pair the next time we sail!

If that's not enough to convince you of the hip factor of this collection (they also have boots, Mary Janes, etc.), you're in good company when stars like Nicole Richie, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Tobey Maguire, and Julia Roberts all slip their little ones' tooties into See Kai Run.

Check out their site and purchase some of the cutest footwear around.

Now that Hannah is officially a walker, dining out is a much more challenging experience. We had dinner with my mom and grandma on Friday evening. It was at the Chinese restaurant where we held our wedding reception. Luckily it wasn't that busy (despite the Chinese New Year season) for half-way through the dinner, Hannah decided that she had enough of the highchair and it was time to do some walking. Around and around the restaurant we went. We thanked our lucky stars that this was a restaurant where we knew the staff well and the patrons were all dining along the edge of the restaurant.

We remembered the good old days where she was happy to nurse and sleep in her carseat afterwards. There were also the days where she was just learning to hold her bottle and would watch the rest of us chat and eat. Now her legs are constantly going and her desire to explore is ever-growing. I'm so happy that she's curious and she's not afraid to wander around even in the presence of strangers (in fact, she greets every wait staff with a bubbly, "Hi!"), but I wish she'd hold back...at least, until after dessert.
