A total of 80 babies, including three sets of twins and a record-setting 19 registrants in the category of girls aged 7 to 12 months, entered the annual contest.
Prince Graeson and Princess Maddilyn each received a trophy; a crocheted afghan for supervised “tummy time”, provided by the Dearborn County RSVP; and a $150 savings account at the Dearborn County Hospital Federal Credit Union, courtesy of the DCH Birthing Center.
Graeson, 16 months, is the son of Anthony “Tony” and Sarah Briceno of Lawrenceburg. Maddilyn, 13 months, is the granddaughter of Timothy and Janice Canfield of Moores Hill.

Cash door prizes were also awarded by the Dearborn County Hospital Physician Partners’ offices of the Center for Women & Children and the Women’s Center.
