I am starting to develop an "I have an ugly baby complex." People rarely ask to hold Alex! There are times when he gets passed around like a peace pipe but other times when it seems like he has the plague. We bathe him, I promise! People don't ever tell me that he is cute. I am starting to dig for compliments by telling people that their baby is cute hoping they will return the favor. What in the world?! It probably doesn't help that we are always hanging out with someone who has a very cute baby. But Alex is adorable, too! He does cry sometimes but I don't think it is excessive. He can even be cute when he is sad (see picture below). I feel like I am trying to sell him. Anybody want an occasionally fussy baby who has a winning smile? Just kidding. He's mine!
Is this a face that only a mother could love?
