A few weeks ago I blogged about a prenatal photo contest I was asked to judge. Last week I scoured through hundreds of sonogram pictures for Brainstrong, the sponsors. It was really tough trying to decide which baby-in-utero showed the most personality. They were all so cute and I was transported back to that mindspace of what’s it like to anticipate your baby’s arrival. A nerve-wracking and exciting rollercoaster ride, to say the least.
After much internal debate, I finally picked my top three photos. And now it’s up to everyone else to vote on the finalists. Click here to vote. The contest runs until May 15th and the winner gets $5000!
BTW–Emmett is 3 months old this week. Last night he slept for 7+ hours! My little guy is getting so big.

Fia hasn’t met the Easter Bunny yet. But at her little “transitional” school (ie: pre pre-school), they had a big Easter Egg hunt. Of course she loved it. We’re going to do a big one here since we now have a great yard. One of my best friends, Pamela Thomas, is coming from New York with her two girls, Emerson (age 10) and Elliott (age 7). So excited to see them. They are one of the families I miss the most since moving to LA.
Sidenote: Pamela’s company is in charge of the prenatal photo contest I wrote about if anyone out there is pregnant! We’re looking for the best sonogram/ultrasound photo of your baby. I’m one of the judges. Click on this link for more info.
Okay, back to Easter: My only problem is Fia still won’t see the Easter Bunny even though she will have had two egg hunts. We do happen to have a panda costume (don’t ask). Two actually. I asked Pamela if she would put it on and pretend to be the “Panda Bunny.” She’s game. Fia may grow up to have an Easter Bunny Identity Crisis (EBIC), but we’ll deal with that down the road. I’ll post panda pics next week!
And just for fun…here is the panda outfit. It actually looks kind of creepy. Wonder if she’ll scare the other kids?? Hmmm. This may not be my most brilliant of ideas…

Here is one of a friend of mine
Hey gang. I’m judging a “cutest baby contest” for Brainstrong, which is a DHA supplement. They’re giving the winner $5000! Woot!
Here’s what makes this contest unique: It’s for a baby-in-utero. It’s the first time they’re doing it, and the first time I’ve been asked to judge something like this. My co-judge is Nate Stolldorf, the Head Booking Agent for the Children’s Division at Product Model Management.
If you or anyone you know has a good picture to submit, go to this link for details.
