"That hair!"

Nearly everyone who "meets" Zoodle (and a good percentage of strangers in the grocery store) comments on his hair. I realize in the pictures I've posted here it's hard to tell just how crazy his hair is.

You see, we have a big ol' cowlick gene in my side of the family--and boy, did I pass it on to Zoodle. He has distinct cowlicks in the front and the back, and it's hard to effectively work with both.

So, while the front is a preppy pompadour...



...his profile makes him look like a wannbe '80s rocker.



But he's my little rocker, and I think he's adorable.

I think he's adorable, too. :-)

How did I never notice that picture at the side, with Jason's fingers squishing your head? That is hilarious!!

LOL, Becky--I just put that head squishing pic there a few days ago. I was trying (unsuccessfully) to take a good picture of myself with the webcam, and Jason came and started messing around. We both got the giggles as we tried to get the perfect head-squishing picture. ;)

He is very adorable! His hair is great, I love your 80's rocker reference! We too get a lot of hair comments in public!

What a cutie!!!! Logan has one swirl cowlick in the back and Sylvie has 2...side by side. So hilarious! I love spunky baby hair!

A haircut?! I can't do that! It's funny, I never understood why mothers of boys had trouble getting themselves to do that first haircut. I understand now--I don't want to touch that precious hair! :) I will get it cut eventually but for now...I'll enjoy the crazy hair.

he could sing for Fontanel of Seagulls!

bad news: the hair doesn't get any better, little E.

good news: in 18 years you can use that wildness to your advantage (and your hairdresser will treat you like a rockstar, too!)

--uncle sean, who still has cowlicks inside cowlicks on top of cowlicks...

(I really need to start proof-reading my comments)

Eli has such cute hair! Cowlicks and all! Simply adorable.

Garrett has two cowlicks, but not much hair at those locations. It will be interesting to see how they play into his hairdo later on! He is sporting a mullet and mohawk though!

I wonder, did you have all the heartburn they say you'll get while pregnant and carrying a baby with a full head of hair?

Carol Beth said...

mommy vern--Nope, not too much heartburn! So it appears the old wives are wrong in this case. ;) I'm thankful I didn't have to put up with awful heartburn in order to have a kid with a full head of hair!
