Capturing the Joy of Movement


It’s official… our little girl is a daredevil! She’s climbing everything these days.  Thank goodness she isn’t trying to climb out her crib yet… because mama isn’t ready for a toddler bed. At 19 months old, she’s constantly on the go. It’s such a fun age, although I’m a little worried now that the fall weather is about to hit because we count on time outside to wear this girl out. She’s hilarious. She wants to do everything we’re doing and is a little frustrated when we don’t know exactly what she wants. Her babies are her best friends… she’s such a good little mama. She is obsessed with pushing them around in the stroller and the shopping cart, or carrying them around in their little car seat. She also loves trying to dress them, put headbands on them and change their diapers. It’s adorable.

With Blaire being on the move so much these days, we were excited to try New Huggies Little Movers Diapers! They definitely live up to their names as they are perfect for little movers. Isn’t it funny that once you become a parent you get excited about something like a diaper? Blaire loves them because they have Minnie and Mickey on them (They’re her buddies!) and I love them because they fit her so well. I especially love that they have double grip strips because someone had recently learned how to open the strips on other diapers.

You can buy them in a smaller 24 pack to give them a try, or you can do it like us and buy the jumbo pack! ;) For your chance to be featured on the Huggies social pages, upload a photo (or video) of your baby on the move using #SetBabyFree. And don’t forget to try the New Huggies Little Movers Diapers.

What’s your favorite part about having an active little one? Please tell me I’m not alone in having mini heart attacks every day when I find my child climbing something… xo

    I got over the mini heart attacks fast with Huntley, as you know she’s been very active from day one! All I can say is she’s great at falling! Also beautiful photos, we’re currently transitioning outta diapers and into undies…I sense it’ll be a long process, especially outta the house!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben
  • Bsquared #BlaireandBen 😍😘☺️
  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
