My Super Star!!!!!

Can ya guess what this is??????


Are you reading this??? Art City Days Baby Contest 2007......


And what place did he take?????


Yup, here is my little baby contest winner who took first place!


I am so proud I could just burst. This Saturday we will be riding on a float in the parade, and his picture will be in our local Newspaper tomorrow. The best thing about it, is that the judges looked past his Down Syndrome, and judged him for who he is. They were so amazed that he could sign. He also won their hearts by patting his tummy, playing patty cake with them, and waving "Hi", and "Bye"!

I am so glad I took him. I almost chickened out at the last minute for fear that the judges would only see the Down Syndrome. I was so wrong. They were all just tickled at how well he interacted with them. All of the other babies in his age group, (17-20 months) did not want to be there. But Rhett just loved all of the attention that he got.

Have I ever mentioned that I love that kid?????

His newest accomplishment is turning on the TV. He knows preciscily which button to push to get it on. His favorite TV shows? Miss Spider's Sunny Patch, and Law and Order. I leave you today with my new little couch potato....
