One day at the office I received and email from my senior high schoolmate and asking me to vote for her son. I followed the instructions and voted. I replied “done” – informing her that I already voted. I went to the contest website of Little Pepo and saw the mechanics. Sounds interesting. I have no plan in sending Baby Kirsten Jae’s photo but my wife insisted. I said I will but I won’t get involved in any way. She agreed on our small talk and submitted Baby Kirsten Jae’s Photo. After few minutes or so they already uploaded the photo of Kirsten Jae on Little Pepo Facebook page. I’m the first to vote. I informed my wife and start her campaign for the Cutest Baby Contest 2011. As I follow the progress of votes I was drawn to it by some invisible force, I can’t resist the urge to promote my little angel. Now I know how it feels like to be a stage father. This will be an interesting and exciting game. If you’ll read some comments you’ll see that things are getting pretty hot on the parents side exchanging comments on how cute their babies are (love your own), different strategies and campaign. Let’s all remember that this is only a game, not much is at stake here only a custom design t-shirt with the baby’s name, top 3 babies will be features on Little Pepo’s website and most important the parent’s pride (priceless). All in all its an exciting game for the parents and a fun contest to participate in (even though the babies have no idea what the heck is going on). Continue reading
A good remedy for stress (in my opinion and it works for me) is looking at baby photos. Why? Because it reminds us how beautiful life is. Babies grow fast. If you don’t monitor them frequently you will miss a lot on their developments. Every second counts – every expression they make; the first smile; the first sound; the first time they play close-open wiith their hands is just amazing. Before I say to myself “What’s the bigga’ deal with this baby stuff?” (that’s when I was single and no kids of my own) yeah it’s cute but that’s it – No! there is more beneath the cuteness and cuddliness of babies. The magic of something peaceful and vulnerable coming to this dangerous chaotic world gives me an indescribable sense of protectiveness so it’s my responsibility to make sure may little angel is safe from harm. This photo session with my baby means a lot to me (actually it’s my whole world). There is no single day that passes without me viewing the photos of my Baby Kirsten Jae.
To Kirsten Jae:
Eventually you will grow up and may choose not to be with us anymore (or get married… something like that) but one thing is for sure – You’ll always be my Little Angel.
