Owen, meanwhile has always had less hair than the average baby his age. (By the way, I can’t check Owen’s baby book for these sorts of stats and notes because I’ve by and large failed to fill the thing out yet --- I’ve turned into the worst sort of baby book procrastinator.) In any case Owen, who still looks largely hairless to me, is growing some wispy longer tufts of hair behind either of his ears. To trim these up seems like such an undramatic “first hair-cut,” that we just haven’t felt inspired.
So while we wait for that top-of-the-head hair to get long enough to justify opening our back deck barber shop, you’ll have to forgive Owen his baby mullet.
