When I was pregnant with Little Mr, I couldn’t imagine what he would look like. Obviously we had seen his silhouette at the scan and taken a couple of photographs home but I just couldn’t picture what he would look like in real life. Would he have my husband’s nose or mine? Would he have my green eyes or take after his Daddy with blue eyes? Would he have my blonde locks or be dark like his Daddy? I didn’t mind at all what features he had of ours, he’d be our baby boy and I’m sure he would be gorgeous.
So when Little Mr was born he had the perfect mix of our features that made him unique. Over the last thirteen months his features have developed and he’s the most beautiful little boy. I know I’m gushing, I’m allowed, I’m his Mama. He’s got gorgeous blue eyes, a cute button nose and the most kissable lips (not that he’ll let you kiss them!)
Excuse the pasta dinner down his bib!
One of his best features is his hair. He’s got beautiful golden blonde locks like his Mama. I thought he might end up with a head full of dark hair as my hubby is quite dark and quite hairy too so thought he’d be just like his Daddy but no, he gets the childhood curly locks from him instead.
His hair is untameable! We wash it every night in the bath as he’s been known to touch his head with a handful of food and dry it off before bed, combing it into place before it dries completely.
Give it five minutes and the most adorable little curls form at the back of his head and have since started to form all around his crown too. I love his hair as it is very cute but it’s so unruly. I’m sure people don’t think we brush it. So my dilemma is do we cut or keep the curls?
If I cut them off to give his hair a more tamed look will we ever get the curls back? I’ve heard lots of stories that once they’re gone, they’ll never come back. Or should we keep his hair just as it is and let it do what it wants for the time being? It’s probably one of the only times in his life he’s going to get away with having such unruly hair but it is beautifully bouncy soft unruly hair.
When did your little ones get their first hair cut? Did they sit still long enough? Did you regret it afterwards?
