I have a confession to make. I have hair envy. Bad.
But wait, Jessica, you have more hair than any sane person would even know what to do with.
This is true. But my babies don’t. Despite Mommy’s over-abundance of thick, curly locks, my own dear children enter this world very nearly bald. And stay that way for a loooong time. And have first haircuts a week before Kindergarten starts.
So when my Wednesday client leaned over to me as I was gushing over her truly beautiful son, said, “Wait ’til you see his hair,” and pulled off his hat, I squealed like a little girl. Seriously, I did. It’s a little embarrassing, actually.
7-day old Grayson was just absolutely darling with his long limbs and all that gorgeous, cannot-be-tamed hair. He kept me on my toes with the sweet little baby smiles he’d flash nearly every time I brought the camera away from my face–by the time I raised it up again the smile would be gone. After a while, though, I caught on and managed to grab a couple lightning-quick little grins.
Grayson on day 7:
Here’s a little smile:
And just the tail end of another one–look at that hair!
One more, up close:
It was almost a shame to cover up that darling head of his, but we did it anyway:).
And, oh, he made Mommy, Daddy, and I work for this shot, but we got it!
Grayson, thanks for making me smile. I’m glad I got to see you do the same:).
