A big thanks to Disney Baby for sponsoring this post and the Disney Baby “Little Character” Contest.
Childhood is magical.
It is full of wonder and imagination, fairies, princesses, lost boys, pirate ships and talking bears and mice...and happiness.
As my daughter grows older (she's entering high school this fall, eek!!), I find myself thinking more and more about the magic of her baby days...those long afternoons of snuggling, playing patty cake, taking her for long walks in the stroller. Babies find such joy in such simple things; a tiny game of peekaboo or a glimpse of Mickey Mouse on the Disney Channel and you can see the joy in their eyes!
When I think back to my own daughter's early childhood - those cute, squishy, giggly baby days - I always equate our magical moments as the ones we spent on the beach.
Angeline loved the beach, even as a baby!
She loved digging her hands into the sand, playing in the surf and watching the seagulls fly overhead. These photos were taken when Angeline was about 6 months old, back when her hair was crazy (see that little poof? ha ha ha!) and her curiosity was most intense. Every thing around her was fascinating; she wanted to touch everything, dig in everything, and of course...put everything in her mouth.
Or her daddy's mouth!
In the spirit of magical childhood moments, Disney Baby is running Disney Baby ‘Little Character’ Contest and is inviting you to submit a photo of your baby, newborn to 24 months old (born 9/2010 to 5/2012). Disney Baby is searching for all of those Happy, Grumpy, and Sleepy moments that capture your beautiful baby’s unique personality.
Entering is easy! You can submit as many photos as you’d like for a chance to win the Grand Prize. From May 15 through June 18, Disney Baby will select one winner each week for a total of five finalists. Those five finalists will each receive a deluxe Disney Baby prize package, including Huggies diapers, and will be eligible to win the Grand Prize.
I know that you have a ton of adorable, magical baby photos, so submit them to the Disney Baby ‘Little Character’ Contest on the Disney Baby website for a chance to win!
