Swampscott's Christopher Rowe made a fine showing in the 2012 Diaper Derby earning a third-place finish in the race's inaugural run.
Time will tell if a Swampscott baby will again come away with a trophy.
Registration continues for this weekend's second annual Diaper Derby at Liberty Tree Mall, which is limited to the first 72 registered babies.
Pre-registration is encouraged and is happening at the mall office located across from Carter’s. Registration closes at 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16.
