Speaking of hair...

I have the honor of showing you this very dramatic haircut! Not only that, but you get to hear how she told me her story in an email. If you don't know Donna's mom, Becky, you are missing out. And the world is missing out because she doesn't have a blog of her own. So here is her email to me after I posted about losing hair...Enjoy!

Holly, you know Mama's gotta keep up wichoo. Losing hair after birth is normal and hormonal. Here's an article from Baby Center.
On more current news, guess who got a haircut? Shut yo mouf. I did! I got a phone call one day, picked it up, and heard, "Becky, this is the 1980's. We need our hair back." I almost wrote you and asked for advice prior to this. I knew my hair was keeping me from the Junior League and all high society events. Also, when I went with Don to Bass Pro Shop, I noticed all the ladies with my hair had on tank tops, stretch shorts that showed every roll, and weighed at least 200. Their trucks were not air conditioned. I now feel so free, I may take up guitar and painting. Here I am in April:

Girrrrl, I have no idea why I was so scared to let go of my 30 year old fuzz.

And for the grand finale, when I asked her if I could use her for this post, this was her reply..."You can use it. I am ready to be on the Cat Walk representing for the AARP!"

I love this woman! You look great, Miz Becky showin' mo necky!

Losing my hair, or just my mind?

I thought I would ask my blog world about this problem I'm having (since there are lots of new mamas out there). My hair is falling out by the handful!!! I mean, when I wash my hair, you could make a wig out of the hair that ends up in the bottom of the shower.

Now, I've heard that you don't shed while pregnant, so you make up for it after you give birth. But I did notice myself shedding while I was pregnant with Eli. I lost hair after Hadley too, so I was testing this theory. I'm not too worried about it since I have more hair than I know what to do with. But for people with thin hair, this could be really bad!!!

I have done no research on the subject, but just wanted to know if any of you have the same issue.

I know I'm losing my mind, but is it leaving me in the form of lost hair?

Father, Son...

...hers spilled it. This is what Hadley says when doing the Sign of the Cross when we are praying. She almost has the motions down, and it takes all that is in me to not bust out laughing because she is so dang cute. "Fader, Son and hers spilled it, Amen." Then she looks at me like she is so proud of herself. Too cute! (That's supposed to be Holy Spirit for all of you that are lost out there...not lost souls...just lost in my story)
