a portrait of my child once a week, every week, in 2013

The hair. So many people want these locks trimmed, but I just can't... not yet. I don't really have a good reason, except that his hair is still baby fine and not one of those thick manes that lends itself to a crisp bowl cut... and more importantly, this is still the hair that he was born with. Sure most of it rubbed out at some point, but I am certain one end of one tiny wisp has been with us since the start. How can I just lop that off?! And yes it does get in his eyes, and yes I don't comb it as diligently as I should... but why should a messy face full of hair be a privilege reserved for girls? He's already learned to brush it off his forehead (a move that always makes him look like a teenager), and I love how the new humidity is introducing little curls. Some day a haircut will find us, but not today!

  1. Totally feel you on this one! My son had bright blonde curls & looked like an angel. I held off cutting it until he was going to preschool & wanted a big boy haircut!

  2. I know what you mean! I love long hair on boys. Oliver's is absolutely out of control, but you know what? He's the kid most people talk about! ;) I love Wyatt's hair!

  4. so so so sweet. it always took me forever and a day to trim my boys' hair for the first time. It makes them too grown up, that first hair cut does. xo

  6. You take as long as you like! I was the same with my boy. Even now I prefer longer hair, but shorter happens to suit him better.

  7. I am totally with you. I reckon our Jamie and our Angus look better with longer hair too...
    He is so very adorable and handsome!

  9. Ohh my, the thought of those hairs being there since birth. I don't blame you for not being able to cut them down. I think his hair is amazing. :)

  10. Don't cut it! Such gorgeous hair. But then I am the same as you, I cannot bring myself to cut my son's hair, though unfortunately for him it sits in a mullet and not in beautiful waves like your son has
