Emma's Hair

For those of you that are around Emma, the post title may be a little confusing.  You're thinking, "What hair?" :) Yes, yes, our little Emma hasn't had much action going on in the hair growing area.  Well, she actually did have a couple of areas where it was growing well, but it just wasn't all of her little hairs, so it was starting to look a little funny.
Exhibit A - Emma's patch creating a little mo hawk ;0

...and yes, her hair would get stuck like this every so often...possibly due to daddy playing with it after bedtime and it drying and laying like this all night ;0  

Mexican tradition is that you shave your baby's head - like bic razor shave - and the myth is that the heat created by the friction will stimulate the hair follicles and promote hair regrowth...and as the universal hair myth goes, shaving makes it come back thicker and more coarse.

While some of you may be thinking: there's still time to shave!  Others of you may be glad to know that, while we did have her hairs cut (yep, all of them ;0), we opted not to completely shave, but to just even all the little hairs out.

In Connie fashion, we had someone standing by to document this occasion.  AND...of course, here I am to share some of said photos with you.


this angle makes her look like she had so much!  Thin, but there nonetheless;)

Aren't you glad you get to see all the fun things, big and small, that go on in our family?! :)  Happy Friday, all.

I know many are signed up for Groupon, if so, you've already received your deal for a $35 60 minute massage!  If you haven't seen it yet, click here.

I also found out about Sreamin' Daily Deals recently and found a great one there going on now!  It's $24 for 2 Fandango tix AND a $50 gift card (and just about every restaurant - at least in this area - is a member!!)  Good thing about this one is that since they're both redeemable online, you don't have to be a local to get to purchase!  Click here for info on that one.

if you're not already signed up on ether of these website and would like to help hook a sista up, let me know and i can send you a link where I would benefit by getting $10 credit (either site) for you signing up through me :)

OH and if anyone has ever wondered what  great gift would be for me, I'd so heart a massage...especially if it's a great deal for you and amazing hour of relaxation and pain elimination for me ;0 Ahem...just sayin;)

OK, better get going to make the most of Ms Em's nap!
