My son has got some really great mixed hair, (puerto rican and caribbean) its soft, and fluffy and grows really fast. I adore his hair, I promised the world that I would cut it as soon as he started talking….then it was his 2nd birthday….then it was labor day…..I kept coming up with so many excuses.
I couldn’t let it go.
That would of course mean my baby is growing up!
His hair eventually grew and grew so much that when we washed it, his hair was hanging all the way down his back!
However, when we were unable to get it braided the day before his birthday party, I had to face the music. His hair was now so long and unruly it looked crazy when not braided, and we wanted him to look his best for his birthday party….soooo…
We did it.
He was so calm during it all as if he knew this day was coming! He is the final result:
I love it! What was I waiting for?!
Here are some more pics from his birthday party:
His play cousin (we had a clown and face painter)
His bestie in the daycare
His little brother and his play cousin’s mama
That smile right there? Made it all worth it!
