Is There Such a Thing as an Ugly Baby?

I admit I did a bit of a snort laugh when I read this post about the socially acceptable way to make fun of ugly babies via the Tumblr blog for “ugly renaissance babies” – and it got me wondering.

Is there such a thing as an ugly baby?

Maybe I’m a pollyanna, but I tend to think even “unique” looking babies are cute. Kinda like a pug puppy.

Also, very often the “ugly” babies grow older and turn out to be gorgeous, so there’s something to be said for having unique features as a baby. Some babies look like Winston Churchill (my oldest totally did!) and some look like your run-of-the-mill 80-year-olds. Some look drunk and some look like they are storing food for the winter in their cheeks.

But all, ALL, I SAY, are cute.

What do you think?
