Pretty much since the day I started posting pictures of my daughters, one comment about them I’ve gotten the most has been about the hair. Specifically the curls.
They are topic of discussion with friends, family and more often strangers.
It’s either “oh my gosh, I just love their curls” or “where did they get those curls from?”.
My response, thank you and I don’t know.
The truth is, I don’t know. I’ve always had straight hair with a slight wave and Jon, well, he has no hair. When he did have it, from what I remember, it consisted of tiny curls. Being half African-American, his hair is very different. Puffy, with a curl, but lays kinda flat. Really, I don’t know how to describe it. So, my only guess is that the kids got some kind of in between that produced big, spiral curls, the kind women pay big bucks for. Although, truth be told, I can’t imagine why. Yes, it’s pretty but my goodness the KNOTS!
Anyways, I’m rambling. I took some photos of the girls and realized how crazy Kaydee’s hair has gotten. It’s so long now that she has to hold her hair up just to see her eyes in a picture.
And Emma …. well, hers are a little more relaxed like Matt’s hair was at this age. When we cut his hair for the first time his curls never came back. I have a feeling hers won’t either. But seeing as how her hair is growing at a snail’s pace, we won’t have to worry about that for awhile. She’s working the hedgehog look right now.
