Cute Kid Update

Tuesday Update: Jayshawn Armstrong didn't make the top five this morning in the Beautiful Baby Search contest on "Live with Regis and Kelly." Over 300,000 online votes were cast Monday for the 10 semi-finalists, Regis Philbin announced on Tuesday's show.
Jayshawn will receive $1,000 in Walgreens gift cards. The winner announced on Friday gets $125,000 towards a four-year college education.

Jayshawn is the foster son of Megan and Mike McCuen of Montgomery.

"The reason we entered the contest was to secure his future, but it wasn't mean to be," Megan told me after the show today. "What were the chances? One in 300,000? But we became a finalist. We were surprised."

Monday posting: Jayshawn Armstrong of Cincinnati is one of the most beautiful babies in America – according to "Live with Regis and Kelly" -- and he could be $125,000 richer with your help.

Jayshawn, 22 months, is a top 10 semi-finalist (from nearly 300,000 entries) announced today in the "Live with Regis and Kelly" Beautiful Baby Search contest. Another cute kid in the contest hails from Greensburg, Ind: Cy Miller, 20 months.

Online voting through midnight tonight at will determine who will be among the top five finalists. The top five will be announced Tuesday (9 a.m., Channels 9, 7), and flown to New York to be on the show Wednesday.

All five will participate in a photo shoot for sponsor Parenting magazine. Parenting editors and "Regis and Kelly" producers will select the winner on Friday. The lucky boy or girl will receive $125,000 "to be used toward a four-year college education," the show says, and a cover photo on Parenting magazine. The other four finalists will receive $25,000.

The five semifinalists not invited to New York receive $1,000 in gift cards from Walgreens, another contest sponsor.

If I reach Jayshawn's mother, I'll post more info.

Can't we just let babies be babies?

The Club at Harpers Point sent this out to their members today..
We have a very special little boy here at the club. His name is JayShawn and he is the foster son of our members, Mike and Megan McCuen. JayShawn was nominated for the Beautiful Baby Contest on the Regis and Kelly Show, and he has made the finals! The McCuen's and JayShawn are on their way to New York right now and will be appearing on the show Tuesday morning.
Here's what we need you to do. We need you to go the Regis and Kelly website before midnight tonight and vote for JayShawn. Today is the only day that the show is accepting votes. JayShawn's picture is the first one in the group of babies. The site will ask you to vote for five children. Their all cute as buttons, but our JayShawn is a special little guy who frequents our nursery almost everyday while Megan works out.
The top prize for the winner of this contest is a $125,000 college scholarship fund. Help us to make college a reality for our little guy. If you've got the time, please pass this on to all the people on your email list. We appreciate all of your help!
