ugly babies


So all my life I have had this tremendous fear that I would have ugly babies. This morning while I was in the shower I was thinking what I would do if Taylor and I had an ugly baby. Anyway, so I asked Taylor what he thought and he of course replied, "we aren't going to have ugly babies, we are good looking people, plus look at baby Zeb, he is incredibly cute, and I am way better looking than kent." (sorry kent). And since baby Zeb's DNA is half my DNA our babies will probably look similar. So my fear left me for a bit and then I realized that plenty of beautiful people have ugly babies. Anyway then Taylor made me promise I would love our babies even if they are ugly, but I just don't know if I can.So i didn't promise him anything. He will have to do the loving if they are ugly. I can love an ugly newborn, all newborns are pretty ugly, even Zeb was, but he got much better. Anyway, one of my greatest fears is that I will have a baby with lots of hair. I really don't like babies that are born with a full head of hair, sorry if any of you were born with lots o'hair. I just think they look like rats. Anyhow, I guess I would have to shave my baby's head.

we totally shaved zeb's head at two weeks. he had the old man mullet coming in. and we look back at his newborn pictures sometimes and cringe. he was weird looking.

I have the same fear of ugly babies, but we have even less control! If we adopt we are pretty much leaving the 'cuteness' factor up to god. Although I would rather have a baby with hair then bald. I made a pact with some friends of mine that we would be honest if someone had an ugly baby. Oh well, that's what brown paper bags are for, huh?

your babies have half hawes dna which means pasty, balding with long whispies (if, like justin, your children refuse to cut their hair), long and lanky, and if they take after taylor, no athletic ability whatsoever. so basically, your kids will be the wierd looking nerds. i wouldn't procreate if i were you! haha

oh and is your next song going to be "cocaine and pornography"? i'd love to hear that one.

Don't worry Laney - Zeb is pasty. So pasty in fact you can see a blood vessel inbetween his eyes that looks like a bruise. Oh well - we've been told by several people that he's cute. I'm his Dad so I can't really judge cuteness. And if athletic ability has ANYTHING to do with cuteness you have us beat in that department. Taylor is far more coordinated than me! I'm okay if Zeb turns into a nerd - it got me into medical school. I'm a pasty, nerdy, not athletic med student with a really cute baby! You have my ok to procreate, if family opinion was going to change your mind.

You are such a freak. I am proud of you for sharing this fear and making it incredibly awkward for yourself when you have a baby and we all scrutinize it much more than we ever would have. My fear? I am/was sure I would have a hermaphrodite.

Oh man, I am totally afraid of having an ugly baby. I guess we will have to see if Michael and my genes match up here in two months. Scary. I am scared for you to see my baby. Now its not just having an ugly baby but what people say about her behind our back. Oh please let our baby be cute....

Is this the reason that you two haven't had any kids.

I think that you need to read the RS Pres talk from conference and reevaluate.

It doesn't matter how good you look, you can have ugly kids (Suri Cruise)

Will I think you are both quite wierd looking! and so hopefully your kids have a chance! Oh by the way my kids are the cutest kids ever you can ask anyone and they would agree and they all had loads of hair!

You may want to consult with Aunt Metta about "ugly babies". I also have my opinion regarding odd looking children but will refrain from discussing them on this forum. However, I will be happy to disclose my feelings when in private.
