It was inevitable.
We recently received some updated pictures of our daughter. All that beautiful hair I marvelled over and cooed over and bragged about? Is GONE. It all fell out.
Now, I was a bald baby. Bald as a cue ball. Bald and looking like Winston Churchill until I was 2 years old. And my sisters were bald. And all my nieces were bald. So the novelty is one reason I was so delighted with a baby with a lot of hair!
I didn’t know it could all fall out. But apparently, it can. It happened to BDH when he was a baby: born with a ton of hair, and then it all fell out.
So I guess it’s another way she’s taking after her daddy.
Kelly blames the delays in paperwork. She said that our daughter’s hair fell out when they told her that there was going to be a delay in when we could go pick her up. She also said it might explain why she looks so shocked:
<Image removed. Sorry.>
She said I should send before and after pictures to our local government officials and tell them, because of these delays, MY BABY’S HAIR FEEL OUT FROM SHOCK!
And with the look on her face… I’d have to agree.
(I love the giant clothes. But, to paraphrase Bernard and the Genie, there’s more to my daughter than FANTASTIC PANTS!)
