OH BABY: Heidi Teare with her daughter Montanna, Queensland Coun- try Life?s baby of the year.

This baby?s got the look



EVERY mother has the right to be proud of their child, but it isn't every day that their child wins a baby contest.

Eight-month old Montanna Teare is loving all the attention she is getting, flashing onlookers cheeky smiles that say 'I don't know what you're saying, but I'll just smile and giggle and win your heart'.

Montanna's mother Heidi Teare, who works at the Newcombe Saddlery in South Grafton, quite regularly reads the Queensland Country Life and one day happened to notice an ad for a baby competition.

Nominations were simple.

"(All you had to do was) send in a nomination with photos," Mrs Teare said.

Then, it was up to the general public ? and just a few from Mum and Dad ? to place a few votes via the paper and by phone.

Mrs Teare said that the majority of voters were customers from their shop.

"(We won) first place with 272 votes," she said.
