Fall Hair.

Now that Fall has FINALLY made it to Alabama (hopefully to stay for a very, very long time), Ali has gotten her Fall Hair.

As opposed to her (often frizzy) summertime curls,IMG_8431
The cold, dry air makes her hair much straighter and silkier. IMG_0972

….which makes her look MUCH older.

I seriously wish my hair had so many different ways of having a “good hair day”. Am I the only Mom that finds myself constantly jealous of my kid’s hair?

But the first thing I noticed when her hair fell straight was that she really does look like me.

People say it all the time, but I rarely see it so clearly…

Maybe she’s my kid after all.

We were at Aldridge Gardens, and Ali was being oddly cooperative with the camera, so I was also able to capture some of my favorite expressions…





And a couple “Pondering the Meaning of Life and my Chocolate Chip Cookie” shots..





And EVEN a few lucky smiles. I totally deserve a reward for that.




I adore the Fall.

I am loving the cooler weather also. Her straight hair does make her look older. That is amazing how it will go from curly to straight like that.

FALL!! HOORAY!!! Ali does look so much older. I'll ask E if he likes summer or fall hair better. We need to know.

Amy Beth seems to be sprouting the same type of hair. When we were at the beach, it was SO curly! I couldn't get over it! The last few days I've been wondering why I can't seem to get it to curl hardly at all. This post explained it! Thanks!

And the pictures are beautiful! She does look a lot like you.

Wow, that is amazing that her hair can be so different just from the weather! She does look a lot older, and TOTALLY looks like you as a kid. Love the frilly pink dress picture. Gotta love it. :)

Oh, and yes, I am jealous of K's hair. All I have to do is get it wet and it forms into perfect little ringlets that keep their shape all day. Definitely jealous.

I just found your B-sides blog. I seriously laughed out loud at the contemplating life and chocolate chip cookies line. Thanks for that.
