Sentimental … Not So Much

By nature I am not a sentimental person … I never have been.  That said, after losing Avery and Sophie, I clung to everything I had that reminded me of them.  It made me wonder how sentimental I would be with the next baby … would I be ridiculously over the top?

I think I have my answer 🙂  Our sweet Monkey, although exceptionally cute has experienced the most interesting hair loss pattern I have ever seen.  First the sides disappeared … then the back “rub” spot … then the top started to go.  Unfortunately, the remaining hair was at least 3 inches long, and in weird patchy spots (seen best from the back, the front still looked nice).

The other day, I had enough.  I managed to convince DH to bring out the clippers and Kai got his first haircut.  Yes, that’s right … at 4 months old.  I dutifully cut off a chunk to save, just in case I wish I had later.  But honestly, not a sad thought in the head over the whole thing. 

While DH wasn’t originally convinced, he agreed with me that it looks way better now that it is clipped … a little naked on the top, but it will grow in nicely. 

I just had to have a little chuckle over the whole thing as I put the hair chunk away later that night.  Apparently having the little squirmy munchkin around is enough for me.  The hair?  I don’t need it.

    “Apparently having the little squirmy munchkin around is enough for me.” I love this.

  2. Too cute. But I agree – I don’t see myself hanging on to “things” if/ when we have a child at home. He will be enough himself 🙂 His brother and sister – we hang on to their things because that’s all we have.

    That is too funny!! The red hair kiddo was born with fell out fairly quickly and was replaced by a brownish/blond fuzz. But around his crown 4-5 strands of the original hair remained – about an inch longer than the rest. I laughed every time I noticed them!
