A boy and his hair

So I know it sounds like a totally wierd post for my first post in a long time. I am posting this for a few reasons. First to appease my friends and family (you know who you are). Sorry I really am a horrible blogger. Second to share with you the many struggles we have with this poor boy's hair. And third, even though it's focused on Charlies hair, babies change so fast and I thought since I'm such a terrible blogger, it would be a good way to show how much this adorable boy has changed!

Here is cute little newborn Charlie. I LOVED all his dark hair and I thought it was great that we had Hannah that had Scott's color hair and Charlie with mine....


You can see in this picture that his hair is just starting to change.


This is after his first haircut. Kind of patchy, but that's normal for babies right?


...and it gets a little thinner....


Here is little Charlie's hair at it's worst. I really was in total denial! I didn't want him to lose his hair...


...poor kid...


This is the very next day, after his buzz cut. We buzzed it all the same length (I just couldn't shave him bald!).


The next few pictures are after another buzz. Notice that he still has one black patch on the back of his head. It grows faster than the rest of his hair and is a different color and texture!!






Now you can see that his hair is finally starting to grow back. Much lighter and a different texture and though you can't see it as much, he still has a black patch that grows the same as his newborn hair on the back of his head. I have trim it separately because it still grows faster!!


A little more fuzzy hair (and his first day eating! yum!)



This is cute little Charlie today! With his whole fuzzy head of hair and a faux hawk! He still has a funny patch, but it blends much better!

Oh, he's so cute! I can't believe how fast they grow up. And Hannah looks so cute as well. We wish we could see you in person!

That was the coolest post ever! What a cute little man. I am going to show Jansen the pictures of Hannah now.

He is absolutely adorable. I wish we could see him in person, he is so big. That is funny about his hair. I'm sure it's just crazy baby hair, but some people actually have birth marks in their hair or on their scalp that make it different from the rest of the hair. I have seen blonde people with a black patch of hair or dark people with a blonde or grey patch of hair. Funny huh!

crazy! I wonder if it will be a birth mark! I just keep hoping that eventually it will grow out and go away, but it hasn't yet!

He is adorable. I LOVE your outfits for him too. So glad you put more pictures I had heard stories about his hair and was having a hard time imagining what he looked like now. thanks

Wow, he looks so much like Hannah to me in these picts! he is too cute!

Melanie said...

Thanks! I agree Lori, he does look like Hannah. We get all comments. Now most people tell me Hannah looks like me and Charlie looks like Scott.?. Oh well, I guess they just look like themselves and I think you can tell they are related

Your Blog is so cute! I love all your pictures and your background!

Tag and Tracy said...

I love it!!! So, I got a really nice camera for Christmas from Tag so that I can start doing more photography. I would love some advice from you! Give me a call whenever you have a minute. I want to ask you about lenses and fun stuff like that.

Wow time sure flies. I can't believe how big your baby is already. You were still pregnant when we last saw you. What a cute little man he is, and Hannah is such a doll. I am so glad to see that you guys are doing well. Enjoy the warm weather. I am freezing here in Ogden.
