First they get teeth. Then they give up crawling. Soon, their baby fat melts away and suddenly they have long, lanky limbs and don't fit in your lap quite as well as they once did. Board books give way to paperbacks with pages that involve more than learning colors.
Which brings me to the hair. She loved her long hair. It was perfect for an Elsa braid or an Anna braid. She liked to wear it up like mommy's sometimes, but most of the time she liked to let it hang loose.
But it was time. Time to cut that first baby curl. We were talking about hair cuts one day and I mentioned that when I cut my hair, I usually donate it to people who are very sick and who have to take medicine that makes their hair fall out. She decided she wanted to donate hers too.
We picked a day and made it happen.
And just like that, the last physical evidence of her baby-hood is gone!
As we were putting the baggy with her hair into an envelope she asked "Mommy, can I send the money in my bank to the other girl who is going to get my hair?" Yes. Yes we can.
We donated her hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program. They provide wigs for children undergoing cancer treatments at NO COST. If you are thinking of donating, they are a wonderful choice. You can find out more here: http://pantene.com/en-us/experience-main-section2/beautiful-lengths
