JAMES Carroll, named Bonny Baby 2011, was quite taken with his prize this week as he hauled it round the living room!
Named the bonniest baby in the annual contest at Christmas, James, of Preston Terrace, Linlithgow, beat off fierce competition from nearly 100 other entrants for the sought after top spot to the delight of mum Lesley-Ann Orr (28) and dad David Carroll (28).
On Tuesday the tiny tot was very happy with the canvas print of his winning smile. Mum Lesley-Ann said: “We are really proud of him. He really likes getting his picture taken.
‘‘At the moment he’s football crazy and he’s got a ball at his feet the whole time.”
Now at 16 months old, James is as cute as ever, and now has baby brother David (eight weeks) to share his toys with who could be a contender for this year’s title.
The Bonny Baby competition is organised by the Journal and Gazette, in conjunction with Tiny Tots of Motherwell.
