If you squint your eyes and imagine…

It seems like there is quite a bit of debate over kids with Ds and the types of hair that they have.  It seems relatively well accepted that they have thin hair, but there is no consensus if that means they are more prone to straight hair or not.

Luke has very straight hair.  As in no-amount-of-hot-iron-or-gel-can-get-it-to-bend straight hair.

I, on the other hand, have fuzzy hair.  Like can-I-claim-some-of-the-Albert-Einstein-fortune-because-I’m-fairly-certain-I-must-be-his-long-lost-niece kind of fuzz. 

So, the question becomes:  Will Piper’s hair be straight or curly?

The last few days, after her bath, she gets this little flip on the side of her head.

Curl?  Cow lick?  My imagination???  Who knows…


  1. Go ahead and DREAM of hair, grin.

    Nana :)

  2. I am fascinated by the hair of children with Ds. Our Summer has the lightest, finest hair in the family, and it was totally straight... until about a month ago it started to flip up into a curl a the nape of her neck! So who knows!
