I can hardly believe it, but I have a walker. Yes, Ethan took his FIRST STEPS two days before his first birthday, and Huggies Little Movers Diapers were there for the ride.
We were out of town visiting my grandmother, who recently had a stroke. She loves to have company, and we love our Meme, so we just had to go see her as soon as we could. Since we knew it was going to be a long visit, my husband stayed at home so he could continue on going to work as usual. My 5 kiddos and I loaded up in our van and set out on the adventure without him.
Once we got there, Ethan warmed up to his great grandmother right away. Hey, she shared yummy snacks and had all sorts of fun, new things for him to get into. His knees and feet were filthy every day from crawling around every nook and cranny of her house.
Bug hidden behind the washer? Eaten. Dirt and cobwebs outside by the front door? Played in. Hanging pictures? Rearranged. Snacks held by Sister? Walked to them. Wait, what? WALKED?
Yes, Ethan took his first steps without me even being in the room. Sniff. He was hanging out with his Meme and his big sister. They were tempting him with some tasty treats and he just walked right over to Grace! Luckily, he repeated the performance so I could see.
The kids were delighted. We had to call all of the brothers in so they could witness it. We didn’t realize he could even stand flat-footed, because he’s notorious for standing on his tip toes while cruising around. I guess he figured it out!
I didn’t want sweet big brother Charlie to feel left out (he is the former baby, after all), so I asked him why he taught Ethan to walk like that. He said he just did because he needed to walk. Drat! Why can’t they stay little forever?
Since he’s now moved on from just crawling to also walking, he has to have a diaper that’s going to move with him. That’s where Huggies Little Movers Diapers comes in.
They fit well, have good grip (thank you Double Grip Strips!), don’t bunch up when he’s wiggling all over the place because of their contoured shape, and they provide great wetness protection thanks to their DryTouch Liner.
