Random Thoughts on Hair

So I was thinking about baby Chase and what he'll look like once he's past the baby stage and I began to remember back to how much my other babies changed from what they looked like at birth; their hair being one of the most striking changes.

Here is Isabel's hair at birth:

Of course, all her hair fell out and came back beautiful and blond and luxurious (do you hear envy through my words?!?!) and this is what it looks like now:


That's quite the change!

Then there's Lillee, whose hair was nearly black:

And a year later, was sort of a dirty blond:



And now is a beautiful shade of brown:


Unfortunately, I do not have baby pictures of Connor on the computer, but he also went through several stages of hair color. From very little hair at birth that seemed to have a bit of red in the right light then it turned off really blond, then dirty blond or very light brown, now.
I am amazed at how drastically our children transform before our very eyes. Sometimes I look at pictures of Connor in his first year and realize that I have forgotten what he looked like back then (it was only 5 years ago!). How will I ever keep up as they all change in the coming 20 years? My mind is not that strong and it is definitely deteriorating every day! I guess I'll have to be content with memories through photos, at least they're more accurate than what I see in my mind.

Aloha Amanda! :D I wish I had your eldest daughter's hair! I am so jealous! You have beautiful children! I am so excited for you and your newborn! And we don't have to worry about remembering every single detail, thats why we have digital cameras :) Nah, but it helps cause I have a bad memory myself! I hope everything is going well with you and your whole family. Christmas is just a few days away! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Much Love, Siana
