Correction about the Photo Contest

Shortly after I entered Makenna in the photo contest they changed the link to rate and recommend her. The correct address is http://www.parents.com/app/sharemy/searchResults.jsp?_requestid=242210.

Search for "Makenna" and the picture of her in her Bumbo will appear (along with a lot of other Makennas). Click on it to go to her gallery. From there you can rate each picture with up to five stars and also recommend her to be the winner. You can do this once a day until September 15th.

Tomorrow I return to work and Makenna goes back to her babysitter, who is very excited to be getting her back again. I am not real excited about starting another school year because I have enjoyed my time off, but it will be nice to get back into a routine. It is hard to believe that this will be my fourth year of teaching! I will try to post some new pictures sometime soon.

The Next American Baby????

We thought it would be fun to enter Makenna in a contest to become the next cover child of American Baby magazine. The theme was to submit photos of your child discovering something for the first time. Judges will decide on five entries to win a trip to New York City near the end of September. However, between now and September 15th people can go to www.americanbaby.com/covercontest daily and recommend a child to be the winner. It says the winners are in no way determined by the amount of recommendations, but if you would like please visit the website and recommend the following photos of Makenna. You will have to click enter your photo and then on the next screen do a search for Makenna. Hopefully, you will see the following photos. Thanks and we will let everyone know if by some slim chance we are a finalist. We think we should be because we do have the cutest baby in America.
