Baby girl is the most beautiful girl in the world. Oh, I know—every mother thinks this of her child. I don’t have a problem saying it out loud, though. I think we should be telling our babies—particularly our girls—that they’re beautiful. On the inside and the out. I have my reasons. The consistent and constant attack on black girl beauty being one of them. That’s the deeper meaning behind this post. The more simple one? My daughter, Mari, took two awesome self-portraits of herself on her iTouch and I couldn’t resist sharing my favorite. It’s so pretty. She’s so pretty. And she makes me happy. So there it is.
