a comb-over to beat ted koppel

No you're eyes are not fooling you- those aren't photographic effects- that is my sons real hair! My kids are born with hair, a lot of hair, and it always elicits comments from strangers. My first had a lot, went bald, then it came back as luscious blond ringlets. My second two have had lots of hair that never falls out it just keeps on growing. The weird part is it is very dark brown when they are born and then comes in very light blond- so yes the tips of their hair is very dark brown and the roots are very light blond- I'll admit it is pretty strange looking and the worst is still yet to come for #3-(seen above at 4mo! with 2 trims already) The other trouble is the back gets worn down some (not true bald spot but the hair is pretty short back there) and the front is really long hence the great two tone comb-over that would make many an old man proud.

I also had this bizarre hair as a baby so I know these are indeed my children. Some people may be proud of passing on prodigious musical ability, astounding intelligence, or mathematical prowess. Me, I delight most in the rockin' two toned Ted Koppel hair!

this is so funny because that is exactly what happened with my kids hair! max not so much because i kept it trimmed short but we have so many pictures of ava's hair with blonde roots and then black ends. i have a lock of hair with a pink ribbon in the middle, one half of the lock is black and the other half is blonde.

smart mama said...

so do you claim the genetic trait?

aubrey said...

do you know what? neither of us do. we have no idea where it came from!

smart mama said...

uhh sounds pretty suspicious to me, aubrey- are you guys sure you're their parents- LOL? I guess you can blame it on the blonde recessive blending genes

SweetPea said...

lol!! Seriously, he is SO cute, and that hair is absolutely adorable. I think all three of them were very lucky to have your fabulous Ted Koppel-like hair!

Way cuter than Ted Coppel though - that is seriously funny! Do you have people asking if you highlight your baby's hair? I get that ALL the time with Ben. Ya...I highlight his hair because I have nothing else to do. Good grief!

aubrey said...

haha. well, i'm PRETTY sure they're mine. at least they both look alike. as for them looking like us?..that is questionable still..

Thanks for your response to my space party question, and I'm embarrassed to admit that I could not locate your email link on your profile page (it has been said that I'm not the most computer literate person in the world). I'm wondering if there is someplace you could direct me for a good pound cake recipe, since that seems to be your cake of choice in your cake blog. I'm wondering as well about some detailed instructions on how to assemble the rocket ship cake. Thanks so much!

My kids are mostly born "bald" because they are very blond with thin hair. They get that from their dad who now has very thick, dark hair. My hair was dark when I was born and turned blond so that the tips ended up looking "dipped." I guess it was a thing in the '70's. I was "in style" one time in my life!

He is so cute! I want to squeeze him! M just had her first haircut, at 15 months, so ss#3 has her beat by far!
