Averi's hair is getting really thin. She totally has a 'new baby bald spot' on the back of her head since her visit to the PICU and having the CPAP strapped to her noggin.
Normally you just ignore the long wispy baby hairs that didn't fall out when the new hair started growing in until they are long enough not to matter. However, Averi's have become very noticeable as of late and they finally drove me over the edge. I got out the clippers!
It's sad that she got her first haircut so young, but the truth is that soon it will all be gone anyways so it might as well look decent. Here's the BEFORE (note the side wispies):
I waited until Dan came home so I could have some help distracting her. We covered her with the cape and she thought it was hysterical (so did I). She kept kicking it from underneath and giggling.
I was going to just cut her hair with scissors but her hair was so thin I couldn't figure out how to do it so I just got out the clippers. Surprisingly, she held really still if we sang to her. I even did a little blending on the sides.
AFTER (no more wispies!):
