Will and Alex's First Photo Contest

We finally did it. After 2 and a half years of hearing from others that I have cute kid(s), I finally took the first step in exploiting their cuteness by entering them in a "Cutest Tiny Tot" photo contest.

Actual Contest Photo Not Shown

Now, I know I missed the exploitation window with Will. He was the cutest baby and would smile every time we put him in front of a camera. He probably could have sold ice cubes to an Eskimo by holding them and smiling. But now he is a cranky 2-year old who resists most things.

Oddly, he did great at the photo contest, smiling and being calm and everything. I don't know what got into him. Of course, he is just getting over a cold and was kind of red and blotchy in the face, so no chance of him winning. Plus, there was this cute girl about his age with pigtails who will probably win anyway.

So how did Alex do? Yes, he was kind of suffering from the "I'm just getting over a cold look too." Plus, he had just woken up from a nap. And he is growing his incisors right now. He was cute, but wouldn't smile. This is what typically happens during his pictures. He has sort of a blank look. So even though he has grown cute curls in the last month, he doesn't make the most of it by smiling.

Ah well, there's only about a million other cute kid contests. Maybe we will try one again. Got to do something with the cute green-eyed guys.
