I love little baby curls. Most of our kids had some little curls when they were babies or toddlers. Some more than others.
Before we left for our furlough last year, Giovanni got a haircut. He looked cute.
When we got back to Brazil, his hair had grown out and he had some cute curls in the back. We took him to get a haircut again and the lady said, "What about the curls?". I said, "Cut the front and leave some of the curls." So, that is what we did.
There comes a point in time when you let the boy's hair grow out and everyone, except the parents, is thinking, "What are they doing? Why don't they just cut the boy's hair??" I think the parents just don't want to part with the baby curls.
Then, slowly but surely that parents start realizing that it's time to say good-bye to the baby curls.
This had gotten out of hand:
So, here is Giovanni with his new big-boy look. He looks so big and tall. But so handsome.
