As a parent, can you truly know if your baby is ugly or not? I'll be honest and say I think most new babies are a little on the wrinkly and scrunchy side. Like baby monkeys or miniaturized old men without their teeth.
Whenever I go out with my 7-week-old baby people tell me how beautiful he is. Do they really mean it or are they bound by social conventions to say he's cute? Of course I agree, but I'm spell-bound just watching my son breathe. His gas smiles have made me cry because I think he's so beautiful. Clearly my opinion on this can't be trusted.
At 7 weeks my poor little guy has baby acne like a teenager, a cradle cap mask around his eyes like a little flaky raccoon, his hair is oily the same day I wash it, he lolls with his tongue out, and his earlobes are noticeably hairy.
He's the most gorgeous baby in the world.
