Thank you to everybody who participated in our Cutest Baby Contest! There are so many adorable little kids around here. I wish we had something for everybody!
I'm excited to announce the winners of our Cutest Baby Contest!
Camden Parker Glover is the grand prize winner in the 0- to 12-month category.
"My sweet boy is three months old and is a ball of excitement!!," mom Amber Glover of Dunn tells me. "He is mommy's little "Monkey!" He loves to laugh, talk (baby-talk of course :)), and is always smiling. He loves to be talked to and loves being the center of attention! The only thing he doesn't like is the hiccups! He is not a big fan of those. They make him mad as fire! He does have a big brother named Talan who is 7 and a big sister, who is a four-year-old Yorkie named Lilly. He is spoiled rotten and we wouldn't have it any other way. He LOVES his big brother and has the best one ever. They play video games together, which he loves, and he loves for Talan to hold him and talk to him. They are the best of friends!"
Twins Haley and Riley Nogard took the grand prize in the 13- to 24-month category.
"Haley and Riley are fraternal twins," mom Kristen Nogard of Raleigh tells me. "Haley has blond hair blue eyes and Riley has brown hair brown eyes (as different as can be!). They were born six weeks early and weighed just under five pounds each. They love to read books, climb on everything, and play with their puppies Tipsy and Scrappy! They are both very happy girls and can often be caught making funny faces (like the picture :) )."
Brynn, six months, is runner-up in the 0- to 12-month category.
"Brynn is our first child and has quite the personality," mom Makayla of Durham tells me. "She is a determined, strong, sweet, smart baby. She crawls everywhere, pulls up on everything, is trying to walk and just started clapping. She loves playing with her puppy Bella, watching mommy get ready in the mornings, going for walks and listening to music. She evens bobs up and down when she hears a song that she likes, it is too cute! She is looking forward to going to Marbles museum more often!"
Gavin is the runner-up in the 13- to 24-month category.
"Gavin Wayne Poteet goes by the nick name Gav-Bean," mom Lisa Poteet of Lillington tells me. "Gavin is 14 months old. Everywhere we go we are always getting compliments on how cute he is and he should be a Gerber baby. People just can't seem to get enough of him. His personality is so contagious. He is always laughing and smiling. Gavin is seriously the happiest baby. He is so laid back and rarely cries.He has the biggest brown eyes. He has an older brother Oakley Poteet, 3. Gavin loves "wrestling" with his Daddy (Alan Poteet) and his brother. His favorite toy is any toy that comes with a ball. He has three cats and a bunny that he loves to play with. He adores his five-year-old aunt, Sarena, and always wants her to hold him or to lay in her lap. He loves giving hugs. He loves to be outside. He loves swinging and playing in the leaves. He likes everything except for a peaches and the carousel, which he is terrified of. Hahaha! He just started walking and he thinks it is the funniest thing. He LOVES music and does this funny scooting thing on the floor when he hears music come on. He is also amazed by all the Christmas lights and of course our Elf on the Shelf Elf-ant (Elephant) this time of year."
