Yes, indeed. After more than two years of a bald or fuzzy-headed baby...
...we are finally reaching the stage of actual, real, measurable hair growth. At least in the back of the mullet.
I am not a fan of the bow-taped-to-head thing (no offense to those who like that look), so since her birth we more often gravitated toward caps and bonnets, which have done a dandy job of "labelling" her as a girl, and more importantly protecting her poor little naked scalp from the sun.
The hats have been really fun, and since she's been wearing them since birth she doesn't mind them at all. The poor kid doesn't know any better.
Still, it really is fun to enter this previously unexplored girlie territory with her. She likes it, too, and will occasionally request "a pony."
That's about the time I sprint for the hair elastics quicklybeforeshechangeshermind. Then I scrape together a few longer hairs (don't worry about the thin spots), wrestle them into a band (never mind if it pulls at her scalp), and ignore the front of her baby mullet.
This is a thick and lustrous ponytail.
Don't burst my bubble.
