Curls!

I've taken a bit of a blogging break after my post last week.  While it was nice to get it all out, I felt a bit exposed afterwards.  I'm just not accustomed to showing my vulnerabilities and felt uncomfortable by showing people that I'm really not that strong and that I am struggling with everything right now.

We have several updates about Kate.  Some disappointing.  Some exciting.  I'll post them all soon.

For now, I'm appeasing the grandmas and great grandmas and sharing the latest thing that has blessed out house!

CURLS!

I have curly hair that I straighten almost daily.  And it looks like Kate may have my curls.  Over the past few days her hair has started curling up in the back!  I love it and am enjoying it so much as we have no clue what her post-chemo hair will look like!

See those sweet curls behind her ear?  Love them!  And see her insane amount of personality?  We've got a mega drama queen on our hands...


Playing with her house!

Smiling for momma!

Kate is so funny these days!  She has mastered the fake cry and knows exactly when to use it.  She has her daddy wrapped around her finger!  I am loving this stage so much!

Love her curls! Have you ever thought of getting a Brazilian blowout for yourself? I have curly hair too, and rarely straighten it because it's such a PIA.

And for what it's worth, I think you are incredibly strong. You are bound to have moments of weakness, but you are far stronger than I could ever be.

Beautiful curls and I think I am seeing a lot of red - love it! Good to know she learned how to use the 'fake' cry to her advantage!

Greg said...

I read Jenn's comment kindof quickly and thought she was advocating a Brazilian blowout for your baby. That seems irresponsible...

Your kid's adorable, good work with the DNA and such.

Greg - I scanned Jenn's comment and just saw Brazilian...

And then I actually read it and got a good laugh. No waxing and no babies getting hair straightening treatments!

Allison said...

Vulnerable...I get that but mostly I think you're human. Not a day goes by I don't think of you and your family and stand in awe of your stregnth....including your stregnth for opening up.

And oh my the sweet curls! I love that last pic with the Elvis lip. So presh!

Smudge's Mom said...

Jenn Baumgartner said...

oh my gosh, so adorable! ;)

Jenn said...

I promise I'm not an advocate for baby hair straightening! And I'm also not suggesting you need a Brazilian....LOL...

Maybe I should learn to space out sentences.

Glad I could make you laugh though!

I am laughing so hard again. :)

Kate is perfect. Just perfect.
