My baby has a freckle?!

My baby now has a freckle on her leg. How does that work? Do babies get freckles?

So weird!

  • I love freckles on people. I think of them as sun kisses.

  • Yeah. My middle son had them early to. It comes from my side of the family. I love it. All three of mine look more like their dad, other then the freckles thing.
