Without Arms Or Legs, This Blogger's Child Touched The Internet By Trying To Take His First "Steps"

Date December 12, 2017

American blogger Katie Whiddon has been having huge success in the United States and other parts of the world by sharing a bit of her family's daily life, which includes her husband and their three children.

The videos, photos, and reports began to get even more attention after she began to show a little about her routine with her four-year-old son, Camden, who was born with a genetic condition called "phocomelia." This congenital disease prevents the formation of the individual's upper and lower limbs. Because of that, little Camden doesn't have legs or arms.

Today we are drinking strawberry, blackberry, and pineapple infused water! YUM!! Camden LOVES his TwistShake cup because we can add all of his favorite fruits without the fruit getting stuck in the lid making it where he can’t get any water. All of us know how much of an annoyance that is. Go visit @twistshakebaby and use my code katiewhiddon30 to get 40% neon colors and 30% off pastels during this BLACK FRIDAY WEEK.

But whoever thinks the boy suffers from this disease is wrong. That is because Katie told Buzzfeed in a recent interview that the little one has a full understanding of his illness, but regardless, he is a very happy child.

She further emphasized that he is a brilliant and incredible child. According to her, Camden knows that he is different, and he says it to other people when they meet him for the first time. Still, according to her, it is not uncommon to hear him saying to people, "I do not have fingers," she said.

Jax’s smile tho.

The daily reports from Katie and her children are always very cute. Last week, for example, the focus was on Camden, who starred in one of the most touching videos on Katie's channel.

You watch the little man making his first movements trying to walk. And of course, this also touched the blogger's followers.

Katie also does not hide her feelings. For her, it was one of the most emotional moments of her life.

Check it out:

With some coaching and a pep talk from his Daddy, CAMDEN FINALLY LEARNED HOW TO WALK! I cried like a baby! I’ve been looking forward to this moment for the past 4 years and it finally happened! I am SO proud of Camden and I am SO BLESSED to be his Momma! • To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email
