I’m guessing you’ve not been around new mothers much. New moms can go on & on about how beautiful & adorable their newborn is, when in reality the child looks like a potato until about 4-6 months.

Just had a baby yesterday, sitting in the hospital now. She’s ugly AF. But damn, can’t stop looking at her.

Or maybe the evolutionary trait is that we actually find them cute?

People thinking babies are cute is the evolutionary trait. People who don’t think babies are cute would be less likely to care for them, and then their genes wouldn’t be passed down.
