A Lot of Hair

Hello Tree friends.

I didn't mean to leave you hanging after our big announcement on Tuesday. But, life called and I had to answer. This week was a big week in my job, and I spent a lot of time at work, but now the big events are over and I can relax.

Even though I dont blog from work, if I have a busy week at work I am zapped when I get home and usually I can't formulate a sentence for the blog.

But now we are back to our regularly scheduled program:

Thank you for all of your sweet comments about our Baby Boy Tree. I have to say it: I KNEW IT!!! We are so excited about our sweet little boy that is on the way and we are about 92% sure we have the name picked. I will share it when we get to 100%. Hopefully that will be soon.

I do have to share a funny story.

I know I have talked a lot about being afraid our baby will have a lot of hair. Of course I say most of this in a joking way. I will fall in love with that sweet baby from the moment my eyes land on him, mullet or no mullet. (well I already love him, but you know what I mean) But joking about our baby having a lot of hair has been something that has occured before we were even pregnant.

In fact it started before we were even married.

You see I come from a family of light people, light skin, light hair, light features, which usally results in bald babies.

Then I married this:

Whoa! That's alota hair!

And thus the jokes began about having a baby with a lot of hair.

So I have to tell you, I'm in the ultrasound room, looking at the image of our baby on the screen completely amazed that God put THAT baby in MY stomach. I mean the whole thing is insane if you think about it.

So I'm laying there all relaxed, totally excited that we are having a boy, when the ultrasound tech says:

"omigosh!"

I turn to the screen, only to hear her say:

"this baby as A LOT of hair"

And then she begins laughing hysterically and says:

"I mean A LOT of hair, like maybe the most I have ever seen on an ultrasound"

I wish you could have heard the amount of laughter coming from Luke at this point, he clearly thought it was the funniest thing he had ever heard in his life.

So she turns and points to Luke and says:

"Yes! Like his hair, its sticking up everywhere just like his daddy's hair"

At this point we were all laughing.

It was so funny and has made a funny story to share with all our friends and family who know my "fear" of having a hairy baby.

So who really knows....maybe Baby Boy Tree will come out with a sweet mullet, or maybe it will all fall our before he comes out.

However, at the rate I'm getting heartburn and indigestion I can only guess I am growing quite a bit of hair in there.

Regardless we will be happy, and it makes for a hilarious story.

And I will be sure and pack Luke's hair wax in our hospital bag. If the baby does get Luke's crazy Indian hair we gotta make sure he knows how to rock it!

Hilarious! I'm sure your baby will be adorable no matter how hairy he is! I just hope your heartburn and indigestion doesn't get worse!
Have a great week! :)

I love baby boys with lots of hair bc I had one!!! My son, Shawn, is almost 9 & still has a ton of hair! On one of our ultrasounds, the tech said look at all that hair bc his mullet was floating up from his neck!!! Not only did it completely cover his head, but also his ears, back & arms! So much hair in fact that he had his first haircut @ 7 weeks bc it was half way down his back. Even dressed in all blue people called him a girl! We couldn't have that!

Shawn is named after a very dear friend who had gone to be with Jesus a couple of years before & was a very hairy
man so we all found it rather fitting as well as the fact that God definitely has a sense of humor!

It cracks me up that the hair your baby will have is on your mind so much. I can't wait to see what he looks like! And can just picture the baby leaving the hospital with a mohawk if he does come out with a massive amount of hair!

MJ said...

Mrs. Mess said...

Kelley said...

Sweet baby with a sweet mullet. I love it. And yes, definitely bring the wax for styling purposes. You can never have too much hair product.

Becca said...

oh my word that's awesome! :-) I love it! He's going to be the cutest ever!

Lauren said...

Hilarious! He'll be beautiful either way, but a head full of hair would just be darling!

Jess said...

That is hysterical!!!!!!!

Jon and Steph said...

Oh my, that is hilarious! But by looking at Luke's head of hair, you can bet that baby boy of yours is going to have a lot!! So cute!

Sweet Simplicity said...

I love this story! He is going to be the cutest baby!

Jenni said...

That's hilarious!!!! So funny since you always joke about that!!! Last night I held a tiny newborn baby with TONS of hair, and it was just the cutest thing I'd ever seen. Your baby will be adorable, no matter what!! :)

Kristen said...

that is hilarious! love it! what a great story to be able to share :)

The Rohman Family said...

Yes, my husband cut my sweet boy's mullet at about 2 weeks old. And his hair is STILL beautiful!

Perfectly Imperfect said...

This made me laugh. I've shared before my fear of having a hair baby. Our u/s tech also pointed out BG's hair and I just knew I was going to have a hairy baby girl (which I fear is worse than having a hairy baby boy!). Fortunately, it now appears that she has my head of hair as all her newborn hair has fallen out and she's just starting to regrow some. I kind of hope Baby Boy Tree has Luke's hair. It's fierce!

Tell me why my captcha is "backhary". Rolling..
