There's one small thing wrong with this picture of Jessica Simpson's daughter, Maxwell

Jessica Simpson's daughter certainly knows how to work a camera already, but something about this snapshot feels a little icky to us.

Simpson posted the pic of her little girl Maxwell to her Instagram account, showing the tot in a modest one-piece bathing suit, and she certainly is adorable.

With her big eyes, pouty lips and a wild mane of blond hair, she certainly is her mother's daughter. But one thing bugs us about the pic, as adorable as it is: Her pose.

Maxwell is sitting on a bench, but it's obvious that as soon as mom said she was taking a picture the young girl struck the "bikini pose": Arched back, hand on hip, butt sticking out. At so young an age, she already knows how she is "expected" to look in a bathing suit photo, and that's just kind of sad, isn't it?

We like this one better, from January. Now that is just total unabashed fun — no booty pop required!
