If We Have an Ugly Baby, Part 2.

Remember back in April when I discussed the possibility of having an ugly baby?

(If not, refresh your memory here.)

Well, something has happened.  I’ve lost my lenses.  What lenses?  My “that’s-a-homely-baby” lenses!  It occurred to me the other day that I can’t tell if Bennett is considered adorable/cute or strange/awkward looking because I think he’s incredibly precious ALL OF THE TIME.

Like when he makes this face:


And this one:

DASHING, of course.

And this one:

Baby model, obviously.

In fact, Bennett’s face could be covered in snot and milk and I’d still be indignant if perfect strangers didn’t remark at how gorgeous he is.

I have yet to check and see if my lenses have been lost on all babies or just mine.  But I’m pretty sure he’s beautiful and will forever operate under the assumption that everyone is agreeing with me.

    I bet you can’t find it for all babies …. you’ll see that they’re all precious and adorable in their own way.

    Best looking baby I have seen in 15 years. By the way, how did Bennett like the game last night. He had his game face on.

    i believe that it’s a general assumption that all babies are beautiful–not because of whatever aesthitic appeal they may hold, but simply because of the miracles and gifts from God that they are

      Right you are. I remember the old song ” Everyone is Beautiful, in their Own Way”.

    I have always kind of thought of it like puppies and pizza.. I have never seen a puppy I didn’t think was adorable and even “not so good pizza” is pretty good….I’ve heard something like this about sex too but that’s for another day.

    I knew it. I knew you would lose your lenses. 😉

    He is beautiful and precious. Your lenses are working correctly.

    He is *really* a beautiful baby. I love how he doesn’t have a very pudgy face, because there’s a lot of pics I see him in and I think, “Wow, I bet he’s going to look exactly like that as man”. And when he’s crabby I just think “Wow, he’s going to look like that as an *old* man”. Look in the mirror momma! You have a beautiful family. The odds were kinda in his favor. 😉
