Hair, No Hair
Here we are, 13 months old TODAY, and Bereket and Sira still legally bald. Just a little Sweet Pea fuzz (you know, Sweet Pea--Popeye's baby (huh?!)).
Will Sira and Bereket ever elongate or grow hair? Will they stay mama's Kewpie Dolls forever? (Stolen picture from Nancy. . . Please don't sue. . . )
Tsega's hair began as straight peach fuzz. Now little coils replace the fuzz. His hair grows thickest and softest at the top near his forehead (so nice to run your fingers through) with the back still playing catch up. A friend's 6-year-old, while loving on Tsega, remarked how his hair is like little tornadoes (a Kansan-kid of course). At first a little confused, then I realized what he meant (and he meant it kindly). All the little, seemingly individual clumps of coils springing from Tsega's head; like sweet little twisters. See. . .So pretty. . .
I cannot imagine S & B with hair. . . IF they ever get any. . . (I think my babies are the oldest baldy-babies of the adopted Ethiopian children I've seen!)
