Dreams do come true!

Joshy hates his curls. I LOVE his curls. He's 4 so I should still have some say in how he has his hair cut, right? Well, I made the mistake of promising to give him a "hair-a-cut" like Jakob's (I love how he always wants to be like his big brother!) once he turned 4 and after I had gotten some cute pics of him with his curls. His dream came true last Saturday... So now he looks like a completely different and OLDER kid...and yes, I miss his curls...but I love seeing how happy it makes him. He asked me if his hair will still be curly when he's 10. I answered, "yes." To which he replied, "But it's not curly right now!" I don't think he understands that even though it's short, it's still curly! Maybe I need to read him that Shel Silverstein poem about the wavy head. Does anyone remember that?

*EDIT* Here's the poem:


I thought that I had wavy hair
Until I shaved.
Instead, I find that I have straight hair
And a very wavy head.

Written by Shel Silverstein (1930-1999)

Anyway...if you want to see the "before" pictures, go here. :)

Now I notice the eyes instead of the curls. His eyes are so adorable!

Very cute, but they grow up too fast!

I love how Josh is looking @ Jakob in this picture. You can tell he really looks up to Jakob.
