1st Place: Aria
Age: 9 months
Parents Names: Breanna and Luis Echavarria
What are some of your baby’s favorite things? She loves her lovey, her bobo (pacifier) and Food!
What is your baby’s most precious moment? Aria has a big brother in heaven, and she loves to look at his pictures on the wall and just stare and smile at him.
What is your favorite story to tell about your Cutest Baby? Aria is a tiny little girl with a huge personality, she is always on the go. She thinks she is so big, she loves to just be on the floor crawling and climbing on things. She was so upset with us one day because we were carrying her and she wanted to be a big kid. We told her sorry “we forgot you’re 27” and she just laughed at us.
2nd Place: Kaisley
Age: 1 year, 10 months
Parents Names: Adam & Pamela Powell
What are some of your baby’s favorite things? Kaisley loves Mickey and Minnie Mouse and playing with her fur brother, Buddy Benjamin.
What is your baby’s most precious moment? When Kaisley said Momma at 4.5 months old and Dadda at exactly 8 months old.
What is your favorite story to tell about your Cutest Baby? Kaisley’s biggest adventure has been traveling to Perú when she was 7 months old in December 2020. We were very nervous because we were still in the middle of the pandemic, but she was so good during both flights. Once we arrived in Perú she could meet her Mamita Patty (grandma), Papa Lucho (grandpa) and all her aunties, uncles, and cousins. It was so amazing seeing her getting along with all our relatives so well, like she had known them for a long time. Kaisley got baptized in Perú on her 8th monthsary and we could celebrate other important dates like Mommy and Daddy’s 3rd wedding anniversary, her cousin Daphnae’s 6th birthday and her 1st Christmas.
3rd Place: Lucas
Age: 1 year, 4 months
Community: East Orlando – UCF area
What are some of your baby’s favorite things? His favorite of all time is his big brother, Liam. He could have all his toys right in front of him and still would choose to run around with his brother over everything. Another two of his favorite things include time spent on the playground and music that can dance to!
What is your baby’s most precious moment? The most precious moment was when he learned how to give kisses. We were with family and asked him for a “besito”(kiss in Spanish) and he poked out his lips and gave not one, but multiple kisses. He then went around trying to show everyone his new talent and tried to kiss everyone.
What is your favorite story to tell about your Cutest Baby?
My favorite story to tell about Lucas is his reaction when daddy gets home. One day I was sitting on the sofa and the door started to open. As my husband walked through the door, all I heard was Lucas scream “Daaa-eeee” (his way of saying daddy). He still does it til this day. He could be anywhere in the house and as soon as he hears the door, he runs in that direction saying “Daaa-eee” and runs into my husband’s arms.
