It looks as if you've put rouge on them.

I actually like the rosy cheeks. I think they work well on chubby little baby cheeks. If the red cheeks are too obvious, perhaps you could drop the opacity of this layer slightly so they look a little more natural?

I'd say perhaps doing a bit of dodge and burn on the baby's forehead on the left, and perhaps just a touch on the right. Also, I would get rid of or lessen that screening texture that covers the picture. But I dunno... maybe you want that effect.

welcome to RP.

good for a first attempt. the first secret to a good colorization is a good restore or, a good picture to start with. your original has a paper texture. use fft or fftrgb to fix this. there's a tutorial in the tutorial forum on using it and you can find links to it with a search on this forum. it's also best to do any light and lighting corrections before you start colorizing. in short, colorizing is a last step action. do everything else first and things will generally come out better.
