I saw a newborn baby today that was downright ugly, y'all.
Don't get me wrong, I adore babies. Any age, any gender or ethnicity; I really do like babies and rarely miss an opportunity to hold and coo and fuss over a wee little infant.
I know that most of them look like they've gone 10 rounds with Tyson when they're first born. It's a tight fit through the birth canal and their poor little faces are all smushed and swollen when they first come out. I still find most of them cute though, and I normally have something pleasant to say about them. I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of infants I've seen that I've found..umm...unattractive - and I've seen a lot of babies over my almost 40 years.
However, this kid.....well, I just couldn't find anything nice to say about it. Instead I said "oh wow! It's hands are tiny!" - and they ARE tiny. They're about the only tiny thing about it; the rest of it is pretty big.
I feel kind of bad for not being able to fall head over heels over it, but...well, this is one unattractive kid, yo. Seriously.
Hopefully the next time I see it, it'll have grown into it's features some and will look better. I sure hope so.....
