Cutest Cuties


Get ready to say ‘Awww!’ 


Utah Valley Magazine’s ninth annual Cutest Kids contest brought in some seriously adorable little ones — and it’s not just their camera-toting moms and grandmas who think so. Nurses in the Timpanogos Hospital labor and delivery unit delivered the results: the top 20 cutest and the 5 funniest.
