After we received more than 100 entries for our Cutest Baby Photo Contest, Little Rock Family picked out 44 adorable finalists (no easy task).

But the public had an even more difficult job: choosing the winner!

After the votes were tallied, the adorable Elijah came out on top. He stopped by for a quick photo shoot and we got the scoop from his mom, Sarah, on his personality, her favorite part of parenting and more.
