Last look

So I gave Henry his first haircut this weekend. I had been putting it off and putting it off because I loved his blond curls and because it meant that he was still sort of a baby, but the curls pretty much left town with the summer humidity and his sweet baby locks were starting to look more like a cross between a toupee on backward and a mad scientist. In the cutest possible way, of course.

To quote Amalah, I didn’t want him to look like a dweeb, or God forbid, a Republican, and I hope we achieved that. Photos tomorrow.

So here’s one last look at baby Henry and his flowing locks…



…and his weather map.


I know, I know, there was a better joke to be made here about the frontal systems of hair swirling around his head, but come on, I spent all my time drawing them for you. YOU come up with the caption.



Post-haircut photos tomorrow.

    I love A.’s curls, too…it will be very hard to cut them. I’m slowly but surely trying to catch up on my blog reading. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
