One of the biggest surprises when Eli was born (other than the fact that he weighed 11 lbs!), is that he had a full head of dark hair. My husband and I were both born with blonde hair, but all of mine fell out and I didn’t have more until I was at least 2. I fully expected Eli’s dark hair to fall out and not grow back for a couple years…Well, I was wrong. While most of his dark hair did fall out, plenty of dark blonde hair grew back in its place.
I love brushing his beautiful hair after his bath each night, but now, I think it is time to take the plunge into baby’s first haircut. I have been emotionally preparing for this moment for a few weeks now, and knew that shortly after Christmas, we would need to do something about the hair falling into his eyes. I think I am ready, but don’t know where to go for his first haircut. In the future, when he is less wiggly, my husband will probably take care of Eli’s haircuts. But for this first one, we want to take him somewhere, to make sure the job is done right!
