Arielle's hair grew real quickly. At six months, the sides were already covering her ear while the back part was covering her neck. This, despite having receiving an amateur haircut from me a couple of months back.
Given a few factors that included the recent sweltering heat and the fact that I have never seen any other six-month-old with hair this long (which made her seem too un-babyish for my comfort), we decided to chop off her lion mane in exchange for a boy cut instead.
Quite a transformation, we thought.
