Beautiful babies come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But it seems like, when it comes to babies, people tend to fall in love with full, round faces and big, beautiful eyes.
We actually set huge expectations for babies when it comes to our own. We want them to be "beautiful" in the eyes of others, just as much as they are to us. We dream of having a beautiful baby, as much as we want a healthy one. So much so that we "Pin" beautiful baby photos across Pinterest boards titled "My future baby goals".
What is the obsession with beautiful babies? There doesn't seem to be any scientific reasoning behind it. But, if we take into consideration our obsession with looks, in general, it makes sense. We simply want beautiful babies that grow into, hopefully, attractive adults.
There is even an old wives' tale that suggests what a pregnant mom does, hears, speaks, feels, etc. will rub off onto her baby. So, some pregnant women take this to the extreme, believing that if they look at beautiful babies, their baby will become beautiful.
But, it's likely a baby won't look anything like what pregnant mommy expected. And that's okay. Because every mommy knows her baby is the most gorgeous thing she's ever laid eyes on.
Still, it's fun to look at other cherubic kids faces with beautiful skin and bright eyes, like this little girl, who is considered one of the most beautiful in the world.
