Bet On Your Baby Featuring Josh Millers & Twitter Party!
There is nothing more precious than your child is. The moment you lay eyes on your little angel you will do anything to keep them happy, and safe. When they are sick, or have health problems. My son has cerebral palsy, and my nephew has a heart condition, which has resulted in three heart surgeries before the age of three. It’s difficult, and at times overwhelming, but you have to pick yourself up and be strong for your child, or in Laura and Michael’s case you have to try to keep up. Keep reading, because On Your Baby Featuring Josh Millers & Twitter Party is all I could fit in the title of this post. I have some great, heartwarming, fun, and exciting news to share!Bet On Your Baby Featuring Josh Millers
Okay, I have several exciting things to share with you. Let’s talk about the new season of “Bet On Your Baby”, which started airing on May 31 and will end on July 19. The show features toddlers 2 – 5 competing against themselves in a series of activates.
We want you to watch Bet On Your Baby on June 14 th and join us for the Twitter Party, but more on the party in a bit. This is the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals episode featuring Josh Miller and his parents Michael and Laura.
Josh Miller has prosthetic legs, because he was born without tibiae in his legs. The little man is a fighter, who has undergone multiple surgeries in his young life, one of which was a heart surgery. Obviously, he is a strong child, who has been through a lot, but he doesn’t seem to let that slow him down. He has done appearances and interview for Children’s Hospital LA, according to a local new story, “Keeping up with Joshua Miller isn’t easy, and neither is keeping him down. Like the little engine that could, Josh never ever backs down from a challenge.”
I do not even know what to say about this little man, he is simply amazing. I was reading a local news story on Josh, and learned he sees himself as a role model. He has completed THREE (3) triathlosn to help raise money for the Challenged Athlete Foundation, and he even meets with new amputees to help show them some of the things he has learned.
For those of you interested in reaching out to Josh you can find him on his Facebook Page, and read more on his story here. He is such an amazing person, and you really should go check out his Facebook Page to see everything he has done.Children’s Miracle Networks Hospitals
Children’s Miracle Networks Hospitals raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across North America. One of those hospitals is Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital that treated Josh Millers.
Did you know every minute, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment? Children’s Miracle Network Hospital provides 32 million treatments to 10 million kids every single year. Hats off to Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, because they also treat every child, EVERY CHILD, it does not matter what the family’s ability to pay is. Children’s Miracle Network Hospital provides $3.4 million to kids every year.
The Children’s Miracle Network Hospital donations stay in the community they were donated to help local kids. These funds are used for anything they need most – research, equipment, charitable care, or even for supporting patients’ educational needs–helping kids keep up on schoolwork when they’re in the hospital. For the last 27 years, Walmart has been one of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ largest corporate partners. So far they have raised more than $700 million to help local children’s hospitals provide the best care, regardless of the families ability to pay. Thanks to the associates and customers at Walmart and efforts of companies like Proctor and Gamble, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is able to share the message that children’s hospitals need charitable support.Twitter Party

Studies have shown that chatty parents raise brainy kids. Try these simple ways to nurture language skills.
By Sharlene Johnson from Parents MagazineHelp Your Baby Learn to Talk
After months of listening to your baby babble, it's a thrilling moment when she finally says her first word—whether it's Dada, Mama, or baba. While this process is a natural part of development, talking to your baby right from birth not only helps her learn to speak earlier but also enables her to master a larger vocabulary. A child's capacity to process words is like any other skill—the more practice she gets hearing words and making connections to their meanings, the more she'll be able to say, says Anne Fernald, Ph.D., director of Stanford University's Center for Infant Studies, in Stanford, California.
In fact, experts believe that chatting up your child is one of the most effective ways to give him a head start in life. Landmark research by Betty Hart, Ph.D., and Todd Risley, Ph.D., published in their book Meaningful Differences in the Everyday Experience of Young American Children, found that babies in talkative families had a higher IQ at age 3 and significantly better test scores at age 9 than those in less talkative ones. Use these tips to get the conversation going.
Talking to a newborn might seem pointless, but your baby's ears and the part of her brain that responds to sound are well-developed by birth. According to a study published in Pediatrics, the more words preterm babies heard while in the neonatal intensive care unit, the more they responded with sounds of their own, suggesting that conversing with a preemie could encourage speech development. The same strategy can benefit any child: "Talk as much as possible to your infant. She's absorbing a lot more than you realize," says the study's author Melinda Caskey, M.D., assistant professor of pediatrics at Brown University.
When you're caught in a nonstop cycle of feeding, changing, and soothing, it's easy to let your small talk revolve around routine matters ("Time for a nap, Sweetie"). Though this is helpful, other subjects will do even more to boost his language skills. "Follow his gaze to see what excites him, and respond to his interests," suggests Kathryn Hirsh-Pasek, Ph.D., director of Temple University Infant and Child Laboratory, in Ambler, Pennsylvania.
If he's staring at a light fixture or reaching for the strawberry on your plate, give him more information. You might use simple terms to describe what the object does, or its size, color, and flavor. You can also chat about what you're doing ("I'm picking up your toys so we don't trip on them and fall") and chant rhythmic poems such as "pat-a-cake."
In the early months, reading isn't about the plot so much as the shared experience. As you cuddle together, talk about the pictures any way you like—you don't have to stick to the story line ("Look at the fuzzy bear"). "Touch-and-feel books are great for babies 6 months and under, when the senses are a primary tool, and picture books with no words at all can free you to make up your own tale," says Amanda J. Moreno, Ph.D., associate director of the Marsico Institute for Early Learning and Literacy at the University of Denver. Whether you choose a board book or a Dr. Seuss favorite, reading to your baby can inspire a richer use of vocabulary and provide fun themes you might not have thought of on your own.
Your baby will quickly tune out a one-sided lecture, so give her a chance to respond. ("Do you see the doggie?" When she replies with, "Ooh goo bah!" say, "Yes, he's eating his dinner.") Likewise, be sure to answer her when she babbles out of the blue. "That teaches her how a conversation works and lets her know you care about what she has to say," says Dr. Hirsh-Pasek. How you respond doesn't matter much at this age. You could comment on what your baby is pointing at, say something generic ("Look at that big smile!"), or even say something completely off topic ("How about peas for lunch?").
You might assume that your baby benefits from all language, but flipping on the tube may actually be detrimental. Researchers at the University of Washington, in Seattle, found that babies between 8 and 16 months knew six to eight fewer vocabulary words for every hour per day that they watched DVDs geared to infants. Why? The back-and-forth of social interaction is essential to speech development. A TV character doesn't react to your baby, but when you smile and reply to your little one's babbles, he knows he did something right and is encouraged to do it again. "There are mountains of data to show that the more human conversations a baby has, the further his language develops," says Dr. Hirsh-Pasek.

How well do you know your baby? Would you bet on him or her?
ABC’s Bet on Your Baby is having a casting call for a new season of the very unique game show which puts parents in the positions to bet on their babies all in hopes of winning $50,000.
Does your child need a college fund? If so, you and the baby can tryout for the show!
Bet on Your Baby premiered last year and in January of 2014 the network announced that the show is coming back for a second season and ordered 8 episodes of the show. Casting for those episodes just began and casting directors would like to audition babies and toddlers that are between 2 and 4 years old. Currently they are holding auditions in the Los Angeles area for parents and their kids. The show is an hour long and puts parents and children apart. The parents play the gameshow on stage while their toddlers are kept busy in an area off stage. The toddlers will complete some tasks or at least try to while the parents try to guess at the outcome of those challenges in front of a live audience in a game show setting.
‘Bet on Your Baby‘ is hosted by Melissa Peterman and every hour long episode will feature five families trying to guess what their babies will do without them around. The families have the potential to walk away with a huge prize of $50,000 going towards a scholarship for their child’s education.
The family Game show is created by Craig Armstrong, Rick Ringbakk, and Ben Silverman. It is produced in the US by Electus and will most likely air the new season in April 2014.
Proud parent’s here is your chance to get your baby on TV, as well as yourselves. How well do you think you know your child or what they will do. Put it to the test and maybe you can get cast on ‘Bet On Your Baby’.
CEO, Chris Grant of Electus commented on the show “We are thrilled that ABC has decided to renew “Bet on Your Baby” for a second season,” he also added “This show has continued to build momentum both in the U.S. and around the world, proof that Electus is achieving its mission to create engaging television.” The show also will have versions in other countries which include Australia where it will air on Network Ten, Hong Kong on TVB, Korea, Discovery Channel in Latin America and Poland as well as channels in Asian countries.
