Father of the Year 2012- Nola Baby

I've been reading the Nola baby magazine ever since I've became a mom in 2008.  I always look forward to the yearly "Mom/Dad of the Year" and the "Best doctors" articles.

I'm a fan on Facebook and I saw that they were taking nominations for their annual Mom/Dad of the year.  I knew I wanted to send in a submission for Clint but I just couldn't get all the words down.  Well...then I waited until the last possible second and finally submitted it around 1AM Easter Sunday. 

I was so excited when I got the call that Clint was Nola Baby Dad of the Year!  I didn't tell him I nominated him so when I was told I needed to get a picture of him and the boys for the magazine I started to scramble.  I honestly didn't have a picture yet of just them three.  I called the photographer who did Liam's newborn pictures and she was able to meet us the next day to take a shot for the magazine.  I then called Clint and told him to clear his schedule around lunch the next day and told him that he was selected as Dad of the Year and I could tell he was really excited!

I've mentioned before how patient Jen Amato is and such a delight to work with.  She managed to get a great picture of my guys despite Noah was a pain that day to work with.  Funny quotes from Noah that day: "I can't open my eyes!  I just can't! They won't open" or "I can't smile, I don't know how".  Zoinks!  I was happy Jen was patient and got a great shot because I was close to losing it.  Eek!

The article was in their May/June magazine.  Please check out the article here.  I'm so proud of Clint!
