Our au pair recently shared with me that in Thailand, all babies get their hair cut at one month. Apparently, Thai babies have more hair than babies in my household. I know it's time to have Connor's hair cut when too many people refer to him as a girl. I probably shouldn't wait this long, but I love the wild 'do - and it is the one feature of Connor that I can claim comes from my genes, not Ed's.
Alas, it may be tamed now, but I know that is fleeting.
It is still too early to tell whether or not Helen has my curly hair, but I am definitely crossing my fingers. My friend Amanda told me that curly hair is supposed to be a dominant feature, which gives me great hope that my genes can out muscle Ed's in this one case.
