I recently became an uncle for the first time. I have to admit at first the whole notion of my little sister becoming a mom felt strange to me. But as she progressed through her pregnancy I found myself eagerly awaiting her big day. Well that big Day was about 3 months ago.
I was nervous of course. I hear all of these painful stories of women experiencing long and protracted labors. But by the time I got a chance, to reply to the text telling me that she was 9 1/2 Centimeters she had already given birth to a healthy, 7 pound baby boy.
They say that every parent, grandparent or close relative believes that their child is the most amazing creation on Earth. I was no different. After seeing the little guy I boldly proclaimed that: "This is the most perfect piece of precious that the world had ever seen."
My new little nephew was so alert and inhibited so much early personality and dexterity, that I almost couldn't believe that he was a newborn. Off course I think he's so beautiful and handsome that he belongs in pictures.
Which brings me to this contest. Just before the birth of my nephew I reached out to another website called Babiesonlie.com. Their site is like a Myspace/Facebook for Babies and small children. I'm so impressed by their set up and I'd say that they are probably the single best resource on the net for moms, expecting moms or any one who is involved in the life of a young child. They were really excited to work with us and they asked us to let you guys know about some of their many contests including my personal favorite the: "Cute Baby Pictures Sweepstakes".
