    My pic wont make you smile it will make you feel sad…cause my husband died 2 weeks after our baby was born

  2. Babble says:

    Stephanie — we are so, so sorry for your loss and know Father’s Day must be hard in your home. Our thoughts are with you.

  3. Amy says:

    Does the baby in the photo still have to be 24 months or younger? Or can the photo be of an older child when he/she was within that age range?

    Can’t wait to see what people send in!

  4. edson francisco bonfim says:

    very good,good

  5. Rachel says:

    Can we submit more than one photo without being disqualified? :)

  6. admin says:

    Hi Amy — the photo can be of an older child when he/she was within that age range :) Looking forward to your photo!

  7. Megan H says:

    Can we only pick one child or can we do a picture for each child? We have two daughters.

  8. admin says:

    Hi Megan, we accept one entry per family. Thanks!

  9. Amanda Pelicano says:

    I’m sure you’ve realized this, but you have some copies of photos on the board, with mislabeled names. I see my baby and husband on there twice, one copy has the wrong names. :)

  10. Yet Again says:

    Yet again you are changing the contest rules last minute. Why is it suddenly going to be based on “likes”

    I participated a few months ago and then it was suddenly the editors who picked the winners. Now the editors were going to pick but we are doing it through facebook likes?!

  11. RellaAnn says:

    Where are the winners posted at today that the editor’s picked?

  12. Yesenia says:

    So I’m confused. I read on this page that the editors would pick the winner and that it would be announced today. Now I’m reading a winner will be based on Facebook “likes.” Will there be a winner for both methods? Or did the rules change?

  13. anonymous says:
