Is your baby the cutest in the Tweed Shire?

YOUR baby could win a sash or a trophy at this week’s Murwillumbah Anglican Church annual baby show and fete.

Residents should prepare for cuteness overload as babies compete in the categories of happiest baby, cutest baby and longest eyelashes.

Organiser Merilyn Gilmore said newborns up to four-year-olds can enter for the chance to be crowned prince and princess or win trophy for baby of the day.

“It’s going to be a lot of laughs and fun,” Ms Gilmore said.

Mum and dad Samantha and Adam McAndrew of Murwillumbah are entering baby Alice into the contest.

Mrs McAndrew said she frequently gets stopped in the street by strangers who coo at her daughter, born at the Murwillumbah Hospital nine months ago.

“I’ve had a few people say she’s the cutest baby they have ever seen,” Mrs McAndrew said.

“A lot of people have said I should enter her into a baby competition.

“Because I found one down the road and it’s the local church I thought I would go along and support them.”

The doting mum said Alice was “born cute” and credited her husband for the good looks.

“She definitely has some of his good qualities - he’s got blue-y green eyes too and blonde hair much like his.”

The apron competition is also tipped to be hotly contested, in the categories of prettiest, most unusual and most colourful.

The fete will have a kid’s jumping castle, face painting, balloons and children’s biscuit decorating competition.

All Saints is on Byangum Rd, Murwillumbah. Baby show nominations are at 9am, judging 10am and the entry fee is $5.
