Ugly Child, Part 1

I know that I promised proof that I was the ugliest child ever last week, but I was too busy with good looking children and didn't get to it. But never fear, the series is about to start.

Of course, all children start as newborns. Lucky for me, I looked just like every other newborn.

Maggie, Newborn 001

See, told you.

Except I came home in a Christmas stocking. Oh, the benefits of being born 7 days before Christmas.

Maggie, Newborn 002

I like to think that my parents' Christmases have all been down hill since then.

Luckily, their hairstyles have been uphill.

I will take this opportunity to point out that I have been as pale as a ghost my entire life.

Maggie, Summer 1981 001

And also that I think there might be an underlying reason as to why I don't wear hats.

Maggie, Spring 1981 003

I would also like to point out that I have always had HUGE cheeks.

Maggie, Fall 1981 001

I will admit that I don't think I was a bad looking baby. But really, there aren't too many really ugly small children. But I promise you, it gets worse. MUCH worse. Stay tuned, the ugly years and your chance to point and laugh at me await.

Cara said...

I love the big cheeks! I should also scan in some of my pic, it may be my outfits that win out as ugly!

My ugliness could beat up your ugliness Maggie.

I just adore these vintage shots.

Oh you aren't even trying. If we are going to have a competition of this, please make it worth our while!!!!!
Interestingly, more things we have in common, both Sagittarians and both as pale as a ghost.
