We loved seeing the photos of all the cute babies that were entered last year in our Cutest Baby Contest, so we're doing it again!
Starting this morning, you can enter a picture of your babies in two categories: Newborn to 12-month-old and 13- to 24-month-old. Submissions for the contest will be accepted through 6 a.m., Nov. 7. Then, from Nov. 8 to Nov. 23, readers will pick their favorites. The babies with the most votes when voting ends at 6 a.m., Nov. 23, win!
Like last year, when I putting together our prize packages, I wanted to make sure there was something for baby and mom. And I was able to again, thanks to our great partners who are returning: Be True Image Design, run by a Rolesville mom and photographer; Marbles Kids Museum; Raleigh baby and kids store SmartMomma; and the ladies of Glam Lounge, along with Jenny's Cupcakery.
Here are the prizes!
