Not long ago, MP posted about how much the Cute Potato team enjoys Gather; a new, family-friendly restaurant on Main Street in Yarmouth. What is it about Gather that appeals? One reader put it best:

“We’ve taken our 3-1/2-year old there a few times now. So great to get to eat good food in a more sophisticated atmosphere with a toddler and not feel out of place.”– Andrea Berry

In late January, the Cute Potato team visited the L.L.Bean Winter Carnival in Freeport. The outdoor carnival is an impressive event, where families get to try snowshoeing, ice fishing, cross country skiing, and more snowy day activities for free! The CP kids had a blast trying all of the activities, but their favorite by far was snow tubing down an expansive hill, again and again. It’s undeniable—L.L.Bean makes a super cool snow tube. And guess what? Today, you could win an L.L.Bean Sonic Snow Tube (regularly valued at $109) for your family!

If you’re a regular to Cute Potato, you know how much we adore Cathy Clicks photography. Scarborough photographer Cathy Davis, who is mom to four little ones, seems to effortlessly capture her subjects’ personalities. She’s patient, relaxed, and willing to try most any location. When the photo session is over, Cathy presents a bag of prizes to reward a job well done. So smart!

MP doesn’t typically get personal on these pages, but today, as she prepares to launch Cute Potato’s first online fundraiser for The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, she thought it would be worth sharing a CP family story with you.

Meet Jack.
In August, MP’s nephew Jack was born weighing 6 lbs. 10 ounces, looking healthy, fabulous, and ready to greet the world. After a few days in the hospital, Jack’s mom and dad, both new parents, were looking forward to bringing their baby home to begin their lives together as a family.

During his first week, Jack lost weight. He was nursing, but struggling to do so. His mom grew concerned and checked in with Jack’s pediatrician. He told her not worry. Babies often lose weight when they first arrive home. Then Jack lost more. He wheezed when he nursed. He pulled his legs to his belly after feeding and cried. His parents decided to call a lactation consultant. When the consultant heard the baby nurse, she recommended he be brought to the hospital immediately.
