K., be assured that over my life time (I am 61) I have seen some ugly babies. Some babies have had uneven features as many of us still do. Ironically, some of the most beautiful faces are so much more interesting because of uneven features. But my real point is,I have seen really ugly babies mature into lovely, beautiful people.
Since this is your first girl, you may have really high expectations. I know that I did. My daughter was born with huge ears and tiny eyes. She had a quarter sized tumor on her forehead.
I had wanted her to be the Gerber baby! It was really disappointing and that was difficult to admit to myself then. But I was disappointed. My friend had the most beautiful baby and I was just a bit envious.
But what I know now is that a baby is a person, and moms grow to love who that person is and that baby eventually grows up to sparkle in so many ways.
Now that my daughter is 25 she has grown into her face and her ears. Her eyes are magnificent, especially with makeup, and she has blond hair with loose curls and a figure to "die for." Some people suggest that she model. She is bright and happy even though she has a learning disabilities and some medical problems.
She has grown into herself and past all challenges.
You have some exciting and rewarding years ahead of you.
Teen years aside, you are going to love your daughter so much over the years.
