On top of this beautifully, perfectly round, slightly larger than average toddler head is the most exquisite mop of curly brown hair. I just love every single strand.
Ike is stopped all the time for strangers to marvel over “her” beautiful hair and features. And he has gotten a few comments along the lines of “but he’s pretty enough to be a girl” when they are corrected. It all generally goes back to that hair.
Some of Ike’s hair curls into perfectly spiraled ringlets a la Shirley Temple. Some of his hair creates more of a big halo around his ears and eyebrows. And in true little boy fashion, some of it just sticks straight out wherever it pleases. The whole look borders on illegal cuteness (you know in my humble opinion).
We’ve gotten some questions about when we will cute his hair, to which I always quickly respond “NEVER!” Because who could take away such beauty from the world? Something as beautiful as Ikey’s long locks.
Ponytailed, headbanded, or wild and free. Ike loves his beautiful hair and we all do too.
I suspect we will be resurrecting the “will you cut his hair?” question soon. As Isaac and I are expecting Ike’s baby sister this coming March.
And the answer will still be “no, I am not cutting his hair”. At least not until he asks to cut his hair, because if anyone’s opinion matters more than mine in this, it is his (maybe).
