The world's ugliest baby
The world’s ugliest baby!
See how Ben has morphed from one of the ugliest babies ever into my absolutely gorgeous 2½year old.
Ben was born after a 3 hour labor (yes, 3 hours from start to finish) and was a HUGE 9lb 9oz, 4.5kg. He busted (yes this is the correct word) out in 2 pushes and was black from bruising. He burst all the blood vessels in his eyes, so after a few days when he could actually open his swollen eyes they were red like a little devil cartoon. He also had a touch of jaundice so he really did look like a little ugly troll.
But as you can see he has improved….LOL
He is such a Mummies boy. He doesn’t remember me going to work or Lisa our Nanny, so he is a lot more clingy around others than the girls were.
I am sure that you will think he is as gorgeous as we do.
