Utah County is known as a hotspot for births, and not just that — we have cute babies! When we solicited darlings born in 2000, our mailbox was flooded with entrants. Selecting winners became an impossible job, so we solicited help from non-participating parents and photographers. In the end, we determined there is no such thing as an ugly baby, and declaring one cuter than another can be more painful than natural childbirth.
In the end, we selected five top cuties (seen on this spread), two memorable expressions, and an additional 10 finalists (pages 38-39).
Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who participated in this event. Just remember — your baby will always be the cutest one in your house.
