For the longest time, Adam has wanted long hair. Last year, we let it grow until I couldn't stand it any longer and chopped it off in time for spring soccer. He has the thickest hair and is always the sweatiest boy out there.
I've cut Adam's hair since he was a baby, and it's transformed from thin baby hair, to thick curly hair, and now to thick, slightly wavy hair (miss the curls!). His hair is so thick, it's like cutting a paintbrush. I've had to buy new haircutting scissors because his hair dulled the first pair. But every haircutting experience is an exercise in frustration as he is completely ticklish. So the less haircutting I have to do, the better.
I actually enjoy his longer hair, as now I have an excuse to run my fingers through it to see his face. Doug thinks it's too messy. Grandma loves it because she thinks he looks like Harry Potter. I'm not sure how long he'll continue to let his mom stroke his hair, but I'm getting my fill before some lucky girl takes over. I also enjoy the soft skin on his cheeks and tell him to enjoy his beautiful skin before he becomes a teenager. You know, rub your hands on them and feel how soft they are. He thinks I'm crazy.
He can't wait for his bangs to grow over his eyes so he can truly be Emo boy . Doug and I always use this Skype emoticon when referring to him.
Adam loves his hair long, and I see him admiring it after a shower. He like to brush his sideburns forward onto his cheeks. We tell them they look like girly sideburns, and he likes to strike a girly pose. It reminds me of the women in old Chinese movies who glue their sideburns to their cheeks to make them pointy. I took this last shot of his girly sideburns before giving him a trim.
It's amazing how the hair genes meshed in our family. Adam got my hair color and thickness, tempered by Doug's curls. Dova has Doug's fine hair and color, but my straightness. It is completely different than mine, and I only pretend to have her highlights. Either way, we are blessed with the most beautiful happa children.
