To cut, or not to cut, that is the question

Well, ladies and gentlemen, there comes a time in every child's life when parents must face that question . . . to cut, or not to cut. And I'm talking about hair. I never thought I'd be faced with this question at only 3 months of age, but Micah's hair is growing wild. Part of me loves the wild mess, and if he was a girl, I'd let it keep growing for quite some time. His hair is already down to the bridge of his nose, and it is kind of touching his shoulders in the back. It is LONG. I had originally hoped to make it to his first birthday before cutting it, and I keep waiting to see if it will fall out, or start curling up (it is definitely curly when wet) but that just hasn't happened yet. So . . . what do you think? Is it time for Micah to get a haircut? Is it crazy to try and wait until 6 months? Or should I let it go a while longer and see what happens?

To help you decide, here are a few pictures of Micah and his hair:





Now, with all of this information on hand, tell me what you think!

Darn! I'm trying to vote but it keeps saying "query error or cannot connect to database".

Anyway... this is a tough one for me but ultimately I (tried to) vote for CUT IT! :)

I love his hair so much and it would be hard to cut but he has such an adorable face that I think a little man haircut would be precious!!!

I think I fixed the poll . . . I changed the poll source, so let me know if it is working! If not, feel free to give me a suggestion of a better source for posting a poll!

I voted cut it too! He is so adorable with his crazy hair but I can't wait to see him all trimmed up!

You fixed it, I just voted :) Officially.

I also voted cut it. I've never seen so much hair on a baby! I really love it but figure he has so much that a trim would do him good. lol!

I cannot believe that not only does this baby have a full head of hair, but that it hasn't fallen out yet- remarkable- he is just so darn cute.

Thats a tough question, I would hold out a little longer I think...ohh man I just don't know what I would do. He is so cute, but then again I agree with Mandy's point as well. Good luck:)

Well I voted. Sam starting losing his hair around 4 months I think. It wasn't pretty...very sparse with large baldspots.

In prep for that, I'd say start cutting now.

But MAN, that kid has some HAIR! He's a rocker at 3 months old!!!!!

Chele said...

Well? What did you decide to do?

Me said...

No decision yet . . . some family members voted to wait (it is a Jewish tradition to wait until the 1st birthday) so we are weighing our options. I have a hair cut scheduled for me in 2 weeks, and this woman has been cutting my hair since I was a child (actually, she started out training and washing my hair when I was 7 or 8) and I think she will offer to cut his hair if I bring him to the appointment :).
