Hair...

Geez, it took five attempts to get this photo to show up!

Anyway, I posted this pic for two reasons - 1. my blog has been very bland lately because I have to use Dh's computer and my camera isn't compatible with his boat anchor computer - besides which, he probably doesn't even have enough memory on here to store a bunch of my photos, and 2. because I've been having these "visions" of my baby looking a little like this...

By, like this, I mean the long, very dark hair... Realistically, I'm NOT going to have a baby with long, dark, dark hair like this. Erik had short, brown hair when born, enough to cover his head, but not enough to call it long. Luey had hair the colour of spun gold, he often *looked* bald, but he definitely wasn't, it was just the colour. Bryn was like Erik, lighter, if anything, still brown, but with red highlights, I guess...

So, why would I have a baby with long, basically black hair???

My dad has black hair. It's red black, not blue black, but definitely black. He is the only one of his siblings with black hair, the rest were variants of brunette, red (auburn, not golden) and blonde... I guess, maybe, he set a precedant???

Anyway, I thought I'd document this, *JIC*, I kept having visions of Luey with a golden halo around his head, and that turned out to be right... I'm not really expecting this to be right, it would be another freak of nature, LOL, like Luey... But maybe, just maybe...

Ooh it's so much fun wondering isn't it!! I can't wait to see what this baby is, who this baby is etc etc. Very exciting stuff :).

Oh when are you due again??? it's before Nov isn't it??
Just wondering because my girls looked very much like that (well when they came home from hospital anyway) lots of dark hair that was a real surprise to us... and then there was Muski - born the same day as Luey and with the same blonde blonde hair.....

Yes, I think if there is anything I like about pregnancy (and to be honest, there isn't a lot, rofl), then it's the anticipation of waiting to meet this new little person (see, knowing the sex is really just the tip of the iceberg, there is so much more to a baby than their sex, so many surprises in store!!!)...

Kate, Leo is "due" October 17th-ish, but if he goes 14 or so days over - not unrealistic for me, he'll be a November baby, rofl, and if he goes that far over, he might well have long hair, if not black hair!!!
