Hair Cut

This afternoon, I got my hair cut. All of them, actually:Then I went and messed up the stylist's hard work by pulling it back in a pony for my run. Here's the gross, sweaty version:
As the sytlist was cutting my hair, she noted that some of my hair that I lost post-baby was now growing back in those short, whispy wings. I told her it was pretty terrifying to see so much hair fall out (about 4-5 months after Norah was born, my hair was shedding like crazy -- seriously, it was a bit worrisome), and she told me that she'd seen some women who had lost whole chunks of hair post-baby! Ack!

Anyway, this conversation led to her asking about Norah and what kind of hair Norah has, which just made me laugh because...well...you've seen Norah; she doesn't have much hair:
She told me not to worry, that Norah's hair will grow in eventually. I again had to laugh at this because it's never worried me. When I was a baby, I too had just fine, barely-there-hair and it wasn't until I was well into toddlerhood that it started to really grow, and even then, according to my mom it "came in all weird." Example, here I am at about 20 months old: Barely any hair up there! And, I have to agree with my mom: It looks a little weird.
Thankfully, by the time I entered kindergarten, my hair was perfectly normal.
So, I'm sure Norah's hair will eventually grow in. And, then -- if she wears it long -- I hope she pulls in back in a pony for running :)

If you know Jamoosh, you know I am diggin' on the pony tail. The actual cut looks good too. But...

I was amazed at how much hair fell out a few months after each kid...it was scary!!! Both of mine were born with a ton of hair though. Your haircut looks cute!

I'd forgotten about my hair falling out, but it was crazy (and I have a lot of hair to begin with...let's just say we went through a fair amount of Draino for awhile there).

Love the baby pix (all of them).

Ahhhh hair ... my babies have all been baldies, my poor 11yo still has very fine, blonde hair ... it has never been totally cut, just trimmed and is still only mid backish length :) You have a cute baby there, who cares about hair? LOL

Your hair looks great too.

Great hair cut!

Rio said...

It's so funny...it seems that every time I just had my hair styled by a professional, I would have to mess it up by working out, swimming, etc. Glad I'm not the only one! But your hair looks great in ponytail and without!

My kiddos were baldies for a long time! And post preggo I lost loads of hair but then again I have enough to spare.

Cute childhood pics!

The little Jess pics are adorable! Nora totally looks like you! Cute hair cut - but now I'm freaked about loosing hair after a baby! Another thing to worry about! LOL!

Wes said...

nice! I didn't know about this hair falling out thing. That's ummmm, weird. Norah is a cutie with or without hair :-)

Tiffany said...

I love the hair cut. I have been toying around with cutting mine but haven't done it yet - maybe you will inspire me to get it done!

N.D. said...

love the new hair cut - you look the same as kindergarten!!

Krissy said...

Hahha...I love the throw back pics! Eli has no hair really, I don't think it will be filling in for quite some time either...

Jes said...

I love your haircut! I got mine cut yesterday and told the stylist not to even bother putting anything in it, because I was heading straight to the park to run. I didn't get to see the finished product until after my shower later in the evening. I never knew losing hair came along with having kids. I'm glad I've been warned, so I will not freak-out as much when the time comes.

Cute cut and I totally love the other pictures!

Good Looking Haircut! Norah pics are great! I am getting a hair cut this weekend. I might just get some pre and post hair cut pics since I am going from what I consider long hair for me to short and spikey! I feel like I might actually lose a pound of hair after it is all said and done :)
