American Baby Faire

Well the family hit the annual baby fair in Atlanta this past weekend. We were looking forward to the baby crawl, which as it turns out, was not all it was cracked up to be. I'll get to that later.

The Baby Faire is in essence a big show of products and services that would be or could be useful to a family having a baby or having already had a baby. We got to talk to the fisher-price folks and see some new items that will be coming out. We got some info on some bottle nipples from Gerber. It wasn't as good as last year, but last year we had not yet had the girls, so it was all new to us.

Now this baby crawl event. Every hour they had a race, and the basic thing was, the baby could not get up and walk and the parents couldn't help. So in essence you had a bunch of babies ranging in age from our 9 month olds to at least a 13 month old. Well needless to say the older babies took off. Ours were doing ok until the announcer started in on his play by play and Harlan wanted to stop each time he talked to see what was going on. Now Lanier was fine until the first time she stopped. Then she turned to the right and took off. She went the distance, just sideways. Next year we are going to rack up with 18 month olds.

Lanier's Time for a tooth

Well it took a little while, but it loks like Lanier is ready to cut her first tooth. Over the last few days, we have noticed that you can feel a little sharp object in the gum. Now you can see the white of the tooth, but it has not yet broken through the skin. I would imagine that any day now it will bust through.

Contest Winners already

Well Dana happened to be in Walmart and they were running a little contest where people walking by voted on the prettiest babies, prize was a gift basket and I think a little outfit. More details coming later.

Well the way it worked was, Dana turned in a picture and over the next 30 minutes everyone walking by votes. Well their were like 6 or 7 other babies and our girls won with the most votes.

They then got called to the front of the baby section to be shown off to the crowd.

So now not only the family members but others also think we have pretty babies.
