Kees had a comb-over hair-do when he emerged from the womb. A full head of dirty blond hair, neatly parted on the top (to the right).

How can you NOT love that face?!

Then, after the age of 3 months, it began to wear off on the sides.  It was thinning out as his head grew, or so I thought.

Is that a camera phone?

And then, all of a sudden, at 5 months, it looked like this:

And this:

And people started to talk.  In fact, at a party last week, one of my cousins interrupted another to ask me what the deal was with Kees's hair.  She asked if I had cut it like that.  Another cousin of mine actually told his wife that I had cut it that way on purpose.  Obviously, he did not clear this notion with me first.

Now why the heck would I cut it into a faux-hawk like that?  So I explained that he was born with a full head of hair, and then he began rolling in his sleep from side to side, rubbing all the hair off his head EXCEPT for the top.

I have always been against cutting my own child's hair.  That just seems like a disaster waiting to happen.  But today, I bit the bullet and cut The Hair.

Square Hair

Hair therapy desperately needed

I think I may have just sent Kees into therapy.


  1. That 'do is too much! A friend's daughter had that same sort of hairdo... but it stood straight up! Talk about a bad hair day, she had a bad hair YEAR!

    Great to see you online again... I was missing my Mustard!

  2. Oh how I wish the pictures would show up for me! I only get the second one and it's priceless! Can't wait to see the rest!

  3. I think it is very distinctive. He may be starting a new trend.

  4. I love his hair. It reminds me so much of Grandpa Kees. Kees should get together with G.G. - he only has hair on the sides!

  5. He's gorgeous. T lost ALL of his hair, and then came back with a bald spot which has finally filled in.

    Look at it this way - I won't be able to get away with dressing T as Mr. T for Halloween, but you could totally do that with your cutie! :)

  9. [...] After receiving many questions and comments (mostly from relatives or close friends) about Kees’s new do, and getting tired of hearing myself tell the story over and over, regardless of how humorous they [...]

  10. OMG that's fantastic. I can't believe it's now gone! *sigh* At least it's documented!
