My First Contest

I love contests! I never, ever, ever win them, but I do like to enter them and sit hopefully waiting that my phone will ring to tell me I've won a $1,000 shopping spree. But it never does.

So, instead I'm going to create a contest. This is a "What Should We Call This?" contest. I'm using a photo of precious little Baby Lam that I think is too funny. Her little personality is shining through in this photo. She's a crack up and SHE KNOWS IT! So help me think of a clever name for this photo.

Here are the rules:
1. One entry per person--not that I have enormous amounts of people visiting my blog, but we gotta try to make it fair, right?
2. Use the "comments" section at the bottom to submit your entry.
3. Enter by 10:00 a.m. (Oklahoma time--which is different than Central Time--trust me, it just is) tomorrow (Thursday, Sept. 11--ooooo, tomorrow is Sept. 11, hmmm, I was going to do a funny blog tomorrow, but maybe not, maybe I need to be reflective. Or maybe not. But probably. Oh, I don't know, we'll play it by ear).
4. Tell me that I have the cutest baby in the whole world (even if you think yours is cuter).
5. Buy me some shoes.

Ok, you don't have to do #4 & #5, but it might increase your chances of winning! Ah, but I kid.

So what's the prize????

Hmmm...in light of all my coffee spilling tragedies lately...the prize will be a $10 Starbucks Gift Card.

So here's the little cutie...name her!

Word of the Day:

somnolent: \SOM-nuh-luhnt\
adjective: 1. Sleepy; drowsy; inclined to sleep. 2. Tending to cause sleepiness or drowsiness.

Here, let me use it in a sentence:
Baby Lam is a somnolent child! (and I'm referring to #2 in the definition above--because the girl gets up all night long)!

I'm horrible at this and don't even know where to start. Can I just say that she is adorable and have the Starbux card?

Since Baloney was the only one to comment in the alloted time, I guess she won...good odds. I would have named it "grinny double-chinny", even though that's kind of dumb & I missed the deadline. Good thing I don't drink coffee!! :)

Actually Kathleen won! She emailed me her entry. It was Happy After Nappy. But I'll do a post on that!
