Is There Such Thing as an Ugly Baby?

by Abby on February 13, 2013

Funny-Looking BabyThis is kind of embarrassing to admit, but when my first son was a newborn, I entered him in some baby modeling contests. This is even more embarrassing because I came across the photos recently. I was shocked. Not at how tiny he once was. That he was – how to put this nicely? – not quite as cute as I remembered.

Now, wait. Before you write me off like one of those “Toddlers & Tiaras” moms, read the rest at

P.S. He’s adorable now that he has hair and the baby acne cleared up.

From one mom to another, I wanted to tell you something. I was recently reading your blog. And by complete coincidence today I saw a Instagram user Betches using your child’s photograph. This person has 4.4 million views. I would just want to know if this was my child and his picture being taken and used on the Internet. hipe this helps and you can have it taken down! I tried to screenshot and send you the picture, but I don’t know how to send it on this website.

Thank you, Brooke, but this is not my baby. It’s from Awkward Family, which I link to from the photo. I appreciate you looking out for other moms, though!
